The Archive of Nuclear Harm exhibits, screens, publishes and collects materials on life and death in the nuclear age. We also design and deliver educational programs. Our mission is to create a resource deep into the nuclear future, that is accessible to anyone with an internet connection.

Items of interest include artworks and other cultural artefacts that explore the full range of harms—to bodies and the biosphere—that are inflicted by both the civilian and military applications of nuclear technology, as well as the universal problems of nuclear contamination and waste. Since the legacy of the nuclear age must be conceived on timescales of up to one million years, and threaten the continued safe operating conditions of Earth’s biosphere, this will be a memory institution like no other.

The Archive of Nuclear Harm is sponsored by the Nuclear Futures Partnership Initiative and the Australia Council for the Arts.

Participants: N.A.J. Taylor, The University of Melbourne (Australia) and Central European University (Hungary).
