Highlighting the viciousness of what nuclear bombs had done in Hiroshima and questioning the need of wars, the posters on display at the Kerala Lalithakala Akademy Art Gallery, Kozhikode, proclaims aloud the slogan ‘No more war’. Organised by the Bankmens Club, a cultural platform of bank employees, in association with the Hiroshima Day observance, the poster exhibition titled ‘No More War’ showcases the adverse effect of wars and prods people into thinking of what it actually gives. Displaying the photographs of the survivors of the first nuclear war, the ever continuing effects of the war, among other pictures, the posters portray the horrors that these conflicts rain on people.

Besides, the history of atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, information including the photographs of the bomb ‘Little Boy’ and the plane, ‘Ebola Gay’, which transported it, survivor’s accounts, newspaper reports on the attack,  etc. have also been included in the exhibition.

Pictures showing the pathetic condition of the survivors who suffer from burns, skin diseases and other disorders after being hit by the radiation, posters comparing the state of Hiroshima and Nagasaki before and after the war and their present day status have also been included in the exhibition.

Stating that the world has become less peaceful, the exhibition carries posters such as the one showing  peace, democracy, freedom, free market, equality, etc as skulls as if they are dead while mass murders, propaganda, myths, poverty, etc are ruling the world.

“The exhibition is being organised to create an attitude against war among the public besides we also want them to realise that the major politics behind any armed conflict is the American business trick to sell their nuclear weapons. They try to create dispute  between different nations,” says Mavoor Vijayan, one of the organisers.

The exhibition began on Wednesday and will continue till August 9.
