From from 1 September 2014 to 8 March 2015, Melbourne Uni is exhibiting prints, drawings and postcards exploring the deadliest earthquake in Tokyo, Japan, which occurred in 1923 and left around 142, 800 people dead.

The exhibit is a fascinating exploration into the history of Japan at the time of the disaster as well as providing a look at Japanese culture, particularly the myths and legends surrounding the beliefs of the Japanese and why the earthquake occurred. We are also able to compare the Japan of then, to the Japan of now and understand the lengths that they have gone to to prevent such a large amount of fatalities in the event of recurring natural disasters.

Aftershocks: Experiences of Japan's Great Earthquake is on display in the Noel Shaw Gallery, Baillieu Library.
