In November 2011, Korean photographer Chung Chu-ha made a study of areas affected by the nuclear accident in Fukushima. Influenced by the issue of nuclear power plants in Korea before the Great East Japan Earthquake, he later published photographs of these affected areas entitled “Does Spring Come to Stolen Fields?” Through the power of these images his work encourages audiences to reflect on the subject of nuclear power. We, in turn, hope this exhibit will present an opportunity to deeply consider peace issues centered on this theme. The museum will also be holding events featuring Mr. Chung Chu-ha and other panelists.
