The curators of the exhibition talk to the artists nominated for the EMOP Arendt Award about critical-innovative photographic approaches within their engagement with landscape and nature.
I present my long-term project : Project Iceworm - the code name for plans by the US military to build a subglacial nuclear weapons base in northern Greenland during the Cold War. As part of her artistic research, Mityukova collects visual evidence of this US secret project,which was abandoned after a few years due to the unsuitable nature of the soil.
For the first time around 6'000 images are displayed.
The public is invited to look in the archive and create a fanzine with the images.
The project is curated by Verena Kaspar-Eisert
