To mark the launch of Yhonnie Scarce’s new installation at Ikon, this event connects the landscapes of Birmingham, where scientific calculations that led to the development of the atom bomb were made during World War II, and Maralinga, South Australia, where nuclear testing took place during
1956–63. Speakers include Dr Ele Carpenter, curator, writer and artist whose research considers the contemporary aesthetics of living in a nuclear present.
