The Radiobiological Human Tissue Repository is located in Ozyorsk in Russia. Since 1951, the Repository archives human blood and tissue samples derived from autopsy of workers from the Mayak nuclear weapons production facility. In order to study effects of exposure of these workers to radioactivity, also ‘clean’ samples from residents from Ozyorsk are archived. However, as a consequence of bad safety management, radioactive waste has been leaking in the surrounding rivers and lakes since the beginning, polluting the whole environment and thus rendering the original sampling and archiving project meaningless. On view is an installation and a fiction film by Gaston Meskens and Juliane Borths for the Arts Institute.
