Julia Wirsching / Gabriel Hensche - The Fourth Pole

Publisher Edition Taube

ISBN 9783945900437

In contrast to Mount Everest, the highest point on earth and sometimes referred to as the Third Pole, the Fourth Pole is the lowest continental point. Situated in a terrain that, like no other is marked by decades of political disputes between religions and states, its current form is of relatively recent origin and the result of the dwindling water level of the Dead Sea. The expedition shifts the biased perspective onto this terrain by declaring the region a Pole. Paradoxically, with the Fourth Pole, the two explorers produce a place that is unknown to them and may have to remain so. Accordingly, the text they generate during their expedition breaks off before they reach their destination.
