** Exhibition October 4 – November 4, 2012
Interference Archive, together with Todos Somos Japon present an
exhibition on the culture of anti-nuclear movements around the globe,
past and present. We have assembled posters, publications, moving
images, and ephemera that reveal the many creative forms of resistance
that have emerged in protest to nuclear power.
> From the disaster at Three Mile Island which galvanized the movement in the 70’s, to the massive protests in Japan following the meltdown at Fukushima in 2011, anti-nuclear groups have addressed a multitude of issues including feminism, anti-militarism, anti-capitalism, peace, alternative energy, environmentalism, and importantly everyday survival.
