Judith Brandner

Welcome to my homepage!

I am a TV, radio and print journalist. One focus of my work is Japan. Since the 3.11 catastrophe in East Japan I devoted many pieces (radio, TV, newspaper articles, books) to the social aftermath of the nuclear accident in Fukushima. 

I work for ORF, Austrian Broadcasting Corporation, in Vienna. As a freelancer, I also published at public broadcasters such as DRS2 in Switzerland, SWR2 or Deutschlandradio in Germany. 

2011 and 2012 some of my reports from Japan have been published by Picus in Vienna.

In 2014 "Zu Hause in Fukushima" (At Home in Fukushima) was published by Kremayr&Scheriau. it contains photographs by Katsuhiro Ichikawa. My books were translated into Japanese and published by Michitani. 

I also lecture at University of Vienna/East Asian Studies, and was guest lecturer at Nagoya City University in 2009, 2011and 2014.
