Lise Autogena’s ‘Kuannersuit; Kvanefjeld’ selected for screening in Nuclear Art and Archives, Dundee on 08 April 2017
A day of artists’ films and discussions about nuclear art and archives considering the kinds of knowledge and reflective spaces that contemporary art produces for rethinking the nuclear. As the civil industry starts to consolidate its archives at the new Nuclear Archive in Wick, Scotland, the European debate is focused on records, knowledge and memory of geological storage of high-level radioactive waste. The post-truth nuclear economy raises serious questions about the long-term security of the nuclear programme, and an investigation of contemporary nuclear aesthetics is becoming increasingly urgent.
The event features a screening of Lise Autogena & Joshua Portway’s film Kuannersuit; Kvanefjeld which explores the global politics of uranium mining and landrights in Greenland along with a roundtable discussion.
Professor Lise Autogena is an artist and a Professor of Cross-Disciplinary Art at the Cultural Communication and Computing Research Institute at Sheffield Hallam University.
