ÞORSKASTRÍÐIN, FOR COD’S SAKE
ÞORSKASTRÍÐIN, FOR COD’S SAKE is an exhibition the Cod Wars that were Iceland's Fishing Disputes with the United Kingdom and other nations over the period of 1958 to 1976. The history of the Cod Wars is extensive and manifold. Arctic fishing was vitally important for cities like Hull and the British fishing communities had their own unique culture centered on the Arctic Cod that perhaps was not so different from the one in Iceland. The exhibition is a project of Graduate students of Applied Studies in Culture and Communication at the University of Iceland in collaboration with Reykjavík City Museum.
