Nuclear Superpowers

In this essay, published by Baltic Worlds, Egle Rindzeviciute interviewed Ele Carpenter, Professor of Interdisciplinary Art and Culture at Umeå University, about her experience of researching and curating nuclear culture and the recent exhibition Splitting the Atom, which Ele co-curated with Virginija Januskeviciute at Contemporary Art Centre in Vilnius, Lithuania. The conversation examined the strong correlation between the experience of imperialism and colonial power, high technology and cultural responsibility as these are revealed in the history of nuclear power, West and East.
