The consequences of the Fukushima disaster are still being felt today. Starting on Thursday, June 9, works by seven celebrated photographers and essays on the topic will be on display in the Matriculation Hall in TUM’s main building. At the opening event on June 8, experts will discuss what it means to remember Fukushima in Germany today.

In the exhibition "Picturing the Invisible", photographers display their creative responses to life after the 2011 Fukushima "triple disaster" consisting of an earthquake and the following tsunami and nuclear disaster. Working in the affected territories, the artists make visible the legacies of the disaster: radiation, lingering traumas, but also the resilience of communities rebuilding their lives in its wake. Each work is paired with an essay provided by a renowned policymaker, author, scientist or activist. The exhibition was previously hung at the Royal Geographical Society in London.
