‘Following the nuclear disaster in Fukushima, how are artists responding to altered social and physical realities?
It has been 8 years since the triple disaster hit Japan, on 11th March 2011. Reflecting on the global impact of this disaster, Art Action UK is holding a discussion event at Deptford X Project Space.
AAUK has invited a panel of speakers, including Yoi Kawakubo, Gabriella Hirst and Warren Harper, to discuss the diverse ways in which artists are confronting global socio-political issues relating to the disaster in Fukushima. Spotlighting connections beyond Japan and UK, the event addresses how artists contribute to discourses around the nuclear. In a cultural environment that obscures the long-term implications of the nuclear Anthropocene, how do artists visualise the unseeable? What is the role of art when confronting such a huge scale disaster?’
