Jules Spinatsch, Asynchronous
A cura di Daniele De Luigi
Asynchronous is a visual project, divided into different sections, which investigates the history of nuclear technology from the Cold War to the present day through little-known episodes, shedding light on the ideological implications of its civil and military uses.
Jules Spinatsch combines existing material created for educational or promotional purposes with his own videos and photographs (sometimes realized through complex automated camera systems) with a view to deconstructing the propaganda machinery that supports nuclear energy and nuclear weapons. The outcome is a reflection in images upon one of the most controversial aspects of Western technological development in the 20th century and which, to this day, stands as a symbol of the fragile equilibrium of the planet.
