Natalia Wehler – Atomatlas

Natalia Wehler’s Atomatlas condenses over 70 years of media coverage: nuclear weapons, nuclear economy, uranium mining, nuclear accidents and protests. The large-scale map of individual woodcuts geographically arranges the images, taken mainly from German information media, in the context of their creation. Thus a world map grows, which reminds of an information graphic and in its cluster structure suddenly illuminates the atomic destruction as well as pollution. The technique of woodblock printing is based on the technique of Japanese color wood printing and consciously creates a parallel to this traditional form of information transfer and preservation. Wood – like art – as a long-lasting memory that opposes the intergenerational consequences of atomic destruction and bears witness to Wehler’s search for a sustainable concept of the image. And of course the Atomatlas is not finished.






Dear partners, supporters, friends and lovers,

due to the COVID-19 Virus our little ETF! office in Berlin remains closed and we are working from home.

As many fellow artists, creatives and freelancers this Corona crisis has hit us hard.
We had hoped to send out a newsletter this spring informing you all about our 19th venue in Lisbon, which was supposed to open in Carpintarias São Lázaro on the 19th of June 2020.
Now, with all the cancellations and the shut down of cultural life we hope to postpone and for EXAMPLES TO FOLLOW! to still be part of the program of Lisboa Green Capital 2020.
We will keep you posted.

Keep safe.
