Aesthetics of Concern: Art in the Wake of the Triple Disaster of North­-Eastern Japan and Hurricane Katrina 

Line Marie Marie Thorsen

Abstract


In the wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and the tsunami that hit Japan in 2011, several artists turned their practices towards the subject of disaster support. Drawing on the philosophy of Bruno Latour, I argue that these artistic practices come to articulate and re‐present the multitude of concerns interwoven with disaster.
