The latest collection of art films and videos on ENGAD is based on the topic of “Never More! – Hiroshima-Fukushima”
6 August 2015 – 70 Years Hiroshima – and a never ending collective trauma. That we did not learn from history showed the nuclear desaster of Fukushima on 11 March 2011.
Via an open call in 2015, CTF – Collective Trauma Film Collections – was looking for audio-visual works dealing with the topic of the nuclear desasters of Hiroshima and/or Fukushima and the perspectives for mankind.
The 70th return of bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki is again and again an appeal to stop using the uncoltrollable nuclear power and its desastrous effects on human existance,
but much more also an appeal to Peace and the renouncement of violence for resolving international conflicts.
Hiroshima and Fukushima are representing symbols that it is not yet too late to rethink and stop and give mankind and humanity a chance to survive.
CTF – Collective Trauma Film Collection
was inviting video and filmmakers all over the world to join and submit and appeal to the world “Never More – Hiroshima-Fukushima”. The collection is the result of this public intervention.
It is standing for itself individually, to be presented in total or in parts – selections, as well as a corporate part of the major exhibition project – The W:OW Project – We Are One World – http://wow.engad.org
Founded in 2014 by the Cologne based media artist & curator Wilfried Agricola de Cologne, the film collection was launched in 2015. In 2017, the film collection was transformed in the “The Memorial for the Victims of Neclear Threads”, and the memorial became corporate part of the media art context
– The 7 Memorials for Humanity – http://7mfh.a-virtual-memorial.org
