Publisher's Description

Tokyo’s Yasukuni Shrine is a complex phenomenon within a local and international sociocultural psyche. It presents an almost contradictory position around the role that memorial, memory, honour, and site have in relationship to the trauma and death embedded within layered military histories and experiences of World War II. Fiona Amundsen’s visual arts project takes the shrine as its focus, presenting a series of present-day photographs with fragments of historical images and documents representing worship and nationalism associated with WWII. In this way, she critically explores the complexities of archives linking to traumatic and nationalist histories.
