Exposing Imperceptible

Monday 11th March 2018, 18:30 - 21:00

I am speaking at this event hosted by Art Action UK at Deptford X, alongside artists Gabriella Hirst and Yoi Kawakubo

‘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?’
