GALLERY OPENING TIMES

’Some towns don’t have names, but real people live there. These towns are not on the map but roads and even railways go there. These towns are not invisible but tourists and visitors never cross their borders.’ The construction of nuclear defense shields by different regimes in different countries harmed thousands of their own citizens. Yelena Popova, a Russian born Nottingham-based artist, reflects on the hidden history and legacy of secret towns involved in the production and deployment of atomic weapons during the Cold War.
