Abstract: Ship of Fools / The Dockers' Museum is the project on which the US artist and writer Allan Sekula worked during
the last three years of his life (2010-2013). It consists, firstly, of a corpus of thirty-three framed photographs and two slide projections, all made by the artist (Ship of Fools); secondly, it contains a collection of various objects, graphic images, postcards, and prints which the artist purchased, mostly online (The Dockers' Museum). Sekula dedicated this work to both historical and contemporary labor solidarity in and around the docks. This publication, which includes a representative ensemble of images and objects that are part of Ship of Fools / The Dockers' Museum, follows as closely as possible the instructions given by the artist before his untimely death in the Summer of 2013.
