Nuclear Polders

SONIC ACTS: Nuclear Polders

20 mei 2022 15:00 - 20 mei 2022 18:00

Nuclear Polders: A Workshop with Kyveli Mavrokordopoulou & Agnès Villette

Nuclear energy was recently labelled as green energy by the European Union. The Netherlands is planning to build two new nuclear power stations and France is in the midst of a “nuclear renaissance”, having contracted the construction of fourteen new reactors. This current climate of nuclear enthusiasm contrasts with the ‘70s and ‘80s that saw rampant waves of antinuclear activism, where ecological, antiwar and feminist struggles ballooned into larger citizens movements. For an inaugural first workshop, taking place on Friday 20 May from 15:00, Kyveli Mavrokordopoulou and Agnès Villette invite participants to engage with these histories and think of them collectively through the International Institute of Social History archive in Amsterdam. This workshop is organised by Sonic Acts.
