Event Details

Mostra fotografica ed Esperienza VR

The School of Design and Poli.Design, the Design Consortium of Politecnico di Milano are glad to host the exhibition “Hiroshima. Conoscere per non ripetere” within the Design Against War initiative.

The exhibition is part of a program of events about nuclear disarmament organized by Hiroshima Prefectural Government, Hiroshima Organization for Global Peace (HOPe) and supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan. The program of events aims to instil lasting memories of the G7 Hiroshima Summit. By dispatching Japanese youth to the G7 countries for dialogues, panel exhibitions, and VR experiences on the outcomes of the Summit regarding nuclear weapon issues, the program aims to reignite momentum for global nuclear disarmament. Leaders of the G7 countries and guest nations like South Korea, Indonesia, and India engaged with the grim reality of atomic bombings at the Hiroshima G7 Summit, which took place in May 2023. Their visit to the Peace Memorial Museum, the dialogue with the A-bomb survivor, and the solemn act of laying flowers at the Cenotaph of the Victims of the Atomic Bomb highlighted the necessity of nuclear disarmament in the face of a challenging global environment.

This program of events was developed to remind citizens of the continuing significance of the G7 Hiroshima Summit since temporal currents move these significant events further from public memory. Japanese high school and university students possessing a strong interest in nuclear issues, have been sent to G7 countries and will reach Milan for a panel exhibition at Politecnico di Milano in collaboration with the initiative Design Against War, organised by the School of Design.
