Theo Eshetu and the Dahlem Museums on documenta14

News from 08/14/2017

Video artist Theo Eshetu has been following the move of the Dahlem museums into the Humboldt-Forum for a documentary film he is making. At documenta 14, he is showing Atlas Fractured, an expansive installation that projects video onto a banner which originally hung over the entrance to the Dahlem museums. Julia Lerche and Stefan Müchler speak with Theo Eshetu about how the piece was created, about fragmented identities, and about big words in small wall texts.
