Visual artist Stéfane Perraud and author Aram Kebabdjian, reveal the inexorable links between photography and radioactive substances

If it weren’t for the invention of photography, the nuclear bomb would probably never have existed. At least that’s what Stéfane Perraud and Aram Kebabdjian aim to prove with their work Le Voile de Kodak (Kodak’s Veil). The pair joined forces to draw on archives from the worlds of science, philosophy, and art, to explore the history of these two interrelated developments from the mid-19th Century to the present day.

The artists’ lecture performance sweeps the audience up in a dizzying maelstrom of various media. They pushes the notions of fact and realism to the brink of fiction. Their approach is hybrid, utopian, troubling, funny, and surprising.
