On the 9th of October, the Environmental Humanities Center visited COVRA, a nuclear waste management facility. Ruby de Vos, PhD Candidate at the University of Groningen tells us all about her experience of this unique excursion.
How did artists, writers, film makers, and activists respond to the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and their aftermath, and how do they relate to nuclear issues today? After Hiroshima highlights some of the different responses to these questions by bringing together film screenings, performances, lectures, visual art, and even a ‘nuclear game.’ The event takes place across the city center of Groningen from 7-13 September 2019.
On 9 October 2019, the Environmental Humanities Centre will pay a visit to COVRA, the only nuclear waste facility in the Netherlands. In addition to learning more about the complex practices of safe storage, we also want to explore the relations between nuclear waste and art on site. Sign up for this excursion quickly, there are a limited number of available spots!
On April 16th, at FramerFramed (Amsterdam) the Environmental Humanities Center will join forces with the Kunstlicht journal to launch the journal issue on „Nuclear Aesthetics“.
