    G2 Erika and a custom typeface, G2 Kernkraft, in use in the publication 10% – Concerning the Image Archive of a Nuclear Research Center.

    In 1957, professional photographers began to make an on-site record of procedures at the Kernforschungszentrum Karlsruhe (KfK, Karlsruhe Nuclear Research Center). In 2017, the decision was made to digitize ten percent of this image archive. Based on current concerns regarding the whereabouts of contaminated nuclear waste, the publication brings together over thirty perspectives from the fields of art, sociology, politics, and science as well as accounts of people who were directly involved with the facility. 10% – Concerning the Image Archive of a Nuclear Research Center sets out to delineate and visualise the afterlife of nuclear research.

    Edited by Susanne Kriemann, Judith Milz, Friederike Schäfer, Klaus Nippert, and Elke Leinenweber. Published 2021 by Spector Books, Leipzig, and designed by Cécile Kobel and Moritz Appich.
