Atomic Artists | PBS video on Chim↑Pom

Watch the full episode. See more FRONTLINE.

I tweeted about this yesterday but I thought it was worth posting here too. PBS has produced a segment on the Japanese activist arts collective, Chim↑Pom and their response to the nuclear disaster at Fukushima.

Although the debate on nuclear energy carries on, it’s nice to see a group of artists shaking up Japan’s age-old heiwa-boke (平和ボケ) or “peace boke”, meaning a state of complacency induced by an excess of peace (and getting air-time for it).
