The Japanese-German Center Berlin is pleased to announce the first joint exhibition of works by writer TAWADA Yôko and photographer Delphine Delphine PARODI-NAGAOKA. Both independently began a reflexive process in the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear disaster that occurred in March 2011, and whose impact is still greatly felt inside and outside Japan.
Following various visits to Fukushima, and after meeting for the first time in Berlin in 2012, the artists decided to present together the fragments of their journey and experiences. Combining the use of photography and poems, the work exhibited emanates from the testimonies and stories of the inhabitants of Fukushima. Based on a series of intimate narratives, it carries the possibility of a memory drawn from individual stories, but also echoes the duty of collective consciousness.
Opening hours: Monday until Thursday 10 am until 5 pm; Friday 10 am until 3.30 pm
Duration: 18 February until 28 March 2014
