'CHERNOBYL PAPERS' by New Scenario, an online group exhibition inside the core zone of the Chernobyl disaster

On 26 April 1986, reactor 4 of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant exploded, causing the world’s largest nuclear disaster to date. 35 years later, New Scenario went into the exclusion zone for 5 days with 39 drawings by international artists to create an off site art exhibition as a poetic encounter with the intangible. The drawings are testimony to individual artistic confrontations with the tragic accident and were installed and documented amidst the haunting chaos of abandoned buildings, thriving nature and radioactive junk. They will remain there forever – contaminated and rotting – but can be seen forever online on newscenario.net.

CHERNOBYL PAPERS is New Scenario’s ninth exhibition project and a consequent step in exploring extraordinary and narrative spaces beyond the white cube to redefine the limits of artistic and online exhibition making.
