The effects of radiation are invisible, but art can make it and its effects visible. Artwork created in response to the events of the nuclear era allow us to see them in a different way. They also help us to re-investigate the politics of the atomic age and in particular the persistent use of censorship.

In this talk, Gabrielle Decamous will explore the atomic age from the perspective of the arts, investigating atomic-related art inspired by the work of Marie Curie, the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Cold War tests in the Pacific, the disaster at Fukushima, and other episodes in nuclear history.

This book talk is organized by the Faculty of Languages and Cultures and based on the recent publication “Invisible Colors: The Arts of the Atomic Age” (MIT Press, 2019).
