The Diagonale’20 was cancelled due to official measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.
Swallowing a bit of the Dead Sea can be fatal: the body burns from inside. At the same time, the sea, which is actually a lake, is also in danger: its level is sinking. And with that come the sinkholes in which things created by people simply disappear. A dystopic excursion to the earth’s lowest-lying point.
