Atlas Radio
by Theo Eshetu and Keir Fraser


This is the radio version of the soundtrack Theo Eshetu made with Keir Fraser for the video Atlas Fractured that is presented at documenta 14. With quotes from Carl Jung, James Baldwin, Langston Hughes, Toni Morrison, Maya Angelou, Angela Davis, Joseph Campbell, Andy Warhol and Bertrand Russell, Homi Bhabha and Charlie Chaplin and an an equally eclectic compilation of music from around the world they create an experimental narrative that aims to look at myth, psychology, art and politics as spheres that can help us understanding and reconstruct a fragmented world.
