Berlin Diary: Signs and Symbols

     |    Sunday, der 27. February 2011

Everything. The yellow symbol: Danger: Welcome to Lobbyland (Atomic Energy Lobby). Two unrelated pieces of graffiti that read together produce new meaning. Nuclear power is a lynch pin of the military industrial complex that throws a huge toxic shadow across the cultural landscape. It is a core social and political issue that reaches into many different aspects of consumer and civil life. For a film that has not only great imagery, but is also a fund of information about the (supposed) pros and cons of atomic energy, watch The Nuclear Comeback.
