A Public Sphere for Poetry, Nature, and Politics
During the final stage of World War Two, the United States dropped nuclear weapons on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and 9, 1945, respectively. The United States did this action with the consent of the United Kingdom as outlined in the Quebec Agreement. The two bombings, which killed at least 129,000 people, remain the only use of nuclear weapons for warfare in history.
Never Again is a montage of images of the aftermath of the 1945 atomic explosions over Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
