NUCLEAR CULTURE ROUNDTABLE: MEMORY AND FUTURE
Friday, May 4, full day seminar

The Nuclear Culture Roundtables bring together artists, architects, philosophers, anthropologists, sociologists along with nuclear agencies, scientists, stakeholders and NGO’s. The round table is a full day seminar accompanying the exhibition Perpetual Uncertainty.

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?
