Session 9: The Nuclear Dimension

Saturday 28 February

16:00 - 17:30

Paradiso, Main Hall

In this panel we look at artistic approaches and responses to the ‘nuclear dimension’, and the imaginings of a future on a geological scale. The dimension of nuclear waste is truly mind-boggling. Human-created nuclear waste is incredibly harmful for hundreds of thousands of years. We have to imagine that the impact of our activities stretches far into a nonhuman future, and, if we take an ethical position, it implies potentially communicating with a future species that lives on Earth… The mounds that store nuclear waste are uncanny monuments to humanity that will outlast the human species as we know it.
