Catalogue for the Danish contribution Coastal Imaginaries at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2023. Critical Coast is a cross-disciplinary reader that explores the ecologies and spaces of coastal landscapes, the urgencies of contemporary coastlands and diachronic ideas about coastal futures.

In continuation of the exhibition Coastal Imaginaries curated by Josephine Michau in the Danish Pavilion at the Biennale Architettura di Venezia 2023, Critical Coast presents a series of artistic representations, essays, poetry, found material, visual suites, fairy tales and empirical conversations with numerous international voices such as Dipesh Chakrabarty, Emanuele Coccia, Rebecca Solnit, Susannah Drake, Inuuteq Storch, Virginia Woolf, Amitav Ghosh, Jane da Mosto, Katherine Richardson, Superflex, Theodor Storm, Julia Watson, Billy Fleming, Bathsheba Demuth, Hans Christian Andersen and many others.

Critical Coast comes in the format of a handbook made in a durable hardcover that readers can bring along into the field – into imaginary coastal landscapes as well as those at risk of disappearing today.
