U.S. based artist elin o’Hara slavick will discuss her project After Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Fukushima. She has been working with the archives at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum since 2008 in attempt to: make the invisible (radiation) visible; mark loss; get people to think about nuclear power and weapons in critical ways; expose the criminal and inhumane actions of her own country. She will touch upon her experiences, processes, ideas and work produced over the last 10 years, some of which can be seen in her exhibition at Galerie Block C.
The talk will be in English. Afterwards, there is the possibility to visit the exhibition in Galerie Block C together with elin.
