I'm very excited to anounce that the Perpetual Uncertainty exhibition will open at the Malmo Konstmuseum on 24th February. The museum will also host a Nuclear Culture Roundtable on Memory and Future in partnership with Linneaus University on Friday 4th May. This exhibition will run until 26th August, so there's lots of opportunity to visit.
Perpetual Uncertainty brings together artists from Europe, Japan and the USA to investigate questions of nuclear technology, radiation and the transmission of knowledge over deep time futures. The artworks in the exhibition explore how nuclear technology has affected our perception of memory, knowledge and time through shifting nuclear aesthetics.
Artists: James Acord, Shuji Akagi, Lise Autogena and Joshua Portway, Erich Berger and Mari Keto, Nick Crowe and Ian Rawlinson, Don’t Follow the Wind, Finger Pointing Worker, Dave Griffiths, Isao Hashimoto, Erika Kobayashi, David Mabb, Cécile Massart, Eva and Franco Mattes, Yelena Popova, Susan Schuppli, Shimpei Takeda, Kota Takeuchi, Jon Thomson and Alison Craighead, Suzanne Treister, Andy Weir, Robert Williams and Bryan McGovern Wilson, Ken + Julia Yonetani.
The Nuclear Culture Roundtable on Memory and Future of radioactive deep time, will be hosted by Malmo Konstmuseum in partnership with Linnaeus University on Friday 4th May. The roundtable will discuss questions such as: Can we think of radioactive artefacts and landscapes as future nuclear heritage? How are nuclear sites being decommissioned and preserved in ways which maintain particular narratives about our nuclear culture? What kind of nuclear memories do we want to pass on to future generations? How can we speculate on our future archeology? Speakers will include: Cornelius Holtorf and Anders Hoberg (Sweden), Yelena Popova (UK/Russia), Juan Fernando Ródenas García and Carlos Gonzalvo Salas (Spain), Anna Storm (Sweden). The day will be chaired by curator Ele Carpenter. The presentations and round table will be held in English. Please let Ele know if you would like to participate.
