The Hibakusha Testimonies

Hibakusha is a word of Japanese origin generally designating the people affected by the atomic bombings
of Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the end of World War II.

The Hibakusha Testimonies is an art installation created by Werner Anderson on the basis of 16 video interviews with Hibakusha in Japan 2018.
They were between 6 and 18 years in 1945.
Now, the last remaining Hibakusha do not have much time left to make us understand.

“The buildings were burning crazily. Many people were asking me for help but I left them. I abandoned them, so whenever I see 
the red sky in the sunset, I remember the scene that time, and then I just apologize in my mind. I hate the burning red sky in the evening”
Ikeda Michiaki
“Her nurse uniform was completely drenched in blood, it was as if someone had poured a bucket of blood over her”
The art installation will be shown for the first time in Brussels and Oslo in April 2024. In addition to black and white portraits, it consists of a 12 minute film in 16:9 format.
Please send me an inquiery if your institution want to exhibit the installation.
