The sea as a space of artistic experience. Juergen Claus’s (b. 1935, Berlin; lives and works in Aachen and Baelen, Belgium) oeuvre encompasses paintings, films, light and solar installations, and underwater art. He is also a prolific writer on art, with theoretical works that have sold over 100,000 copies. “Juergen Claus is the first one to see the ocean through an artist’s rather than a scientist’s lens,” Michel Ragon writes. In this book, Claus intertwines his experiences working on the fascinating underwater installations with a pressing contemporary concern: the global efforts to restore the seas to health. The publication combines visual art, architecture, poetry, and music for a multifaceted engagement with the world’s oceans. Juergen Claus majored in theater studies at the Universität Mu¨nchen and was a research associate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and professor of media art at the Kunsthochschule fu¨r Medien Köln, Cologne.
