Wars, natural disasters, and pandemics. Perhaps, in no other era has there been a more absurd situation for children than today in developing and developed countries. Following on from the exhibition “Children and War,” which was held under the theme “Children and the Absurd,” this exhibition shows the enormous impact of radiation in “Hiroshima” and approaches the theme “Children and Radiation” through the works of Mr. Arthur Binard (poet), Ms. Niwata Anju (peace artist), and Ms. Ishiuchi Miyako (photographer).
Children and the Absurd: Still, the World is Worth Living in
“Children and War” in Phase I
In no other era has there been a more absurd situation for children than today. Global-scale problems; natural disasters caused by climate change, wars, and other problems are occurring in developing and developed countries alike, and children in vulnerable positions are being pushed into dire straits.
