Two months ago, when we selected the NUCLEAR theme
for this edition, there was nothing to indicate that the world would soon be
facing the current crisis affecting the Fukushima reactors. But we were aware
that NUCLEAR energy would have a great impact on our lives in one way or
Japan, one of the world’s most fully prepared
countries when it comes to earthquakes, with one of the world’s most advanced
nuclear energy industries, found itself taken by surprise by unpredictable
events. Much to the concern of the entire world, at the time of going to press
with this edition, a radioactive leak has already been confirmed.
We had hoped that those who have contributed
to this edition would perhaps provide views both for and against the use of
nuclear energy. However, particularly in the light of current events, the
majority seem to associate nuclear energy with destructive forces. Without a
doubt, this has emerged as a rather dark edition of Revolutionart, but
nevertheless it deals with an important aspect of what humanity does.
And that is why we have invited two members
of the most destructive heavy metal bands in the world: Slipknot and Cradle of
Filth. They will speak to us of their artistic work, their new projects and
their vision of a possible nuclear future.
For some years now, Revolutionart has been
inviting talented people to share their visions, without censorship. Our
philosophy is revolutionary, and we seek to communicate patterns of current
thought regarding issues that concern all humanity. At the same time, we seek
to color our approach with positive ideas.
