Cold Comfort for a Hot World

Event Details

The Diefenbunker: Canada’s Cold War Museum is pleased to announce its 2023 Artist-in-Residence exhibition, featuring the work of collaborative duo Wind Up Radio, founded by Sarah Blumel and Anisa Cameron.

This multi-part exhibition explores how we cope in the face of an uncertain future, taking inspiration from Cold War preparedness that the Diefenbunker exemplifies. Using satirical music and video compositions that contribute to a long history of musical responses to nuclear war, Wind Up Radio invites us to consider an unlikely truth: that levity and laughter may be possible — perhaps even comforting — in moments of fear and helplessness.

Cold Comfort for a Hot World runs until Sunday, February 4, 2024. Admission to the exhibition is included with general admission to the Diefenbunker.
