Anaïs Tondeur, Martin Netočný, Vojtěch Radakulan: Released Atoms

Start: 21. 2. 2023, 18:00
Viktorie Vítů

The group exhibition Released Atoms follows the theme of making the invisible visible. While the radiographs –photographs created using artificially produced gamma rays – penetrate the inside of X-rayed objects and reveal their internal structure, selected works by contemporary artists depict the hopes placed in the peaceful use of energy and the fears associated with it. Alongside the original documentation of historical radiograms and popular and avant-garde books, the exhibition presents works that explore spectacular modernist projects and give access to the environments of atomic reactors and isolated sites affected by nuclear disaster.
