Video artist, filmmaker and photographer Theo Eshetu discusses his recent projects with a focus on his video installation Brave New World II, now on view at the National Museum of African Art. He shows how aspects of his biography—born in London to Dutch and Ethiopian parents, raised in Senegal and other countries, and now residing in Rome—as well as circumstance influence his life and art.

About the Artist:

Theo Eshetu received his degree in communication design from the North East London Polytechnic in 1981. Since then, he has taught film—most recently at the Accademia dell’Immagine in L’Aquila, Italy—and worked in a range of new media formats, from documentary and experimental films to video art installations and photography. His films include Traveling Light (1992), Art is Easy (1997), Blood Is Not Fresh Water (1998), Africanized (2001) and Body and Soul (2004). Eshetu’s work has appeared throughout Italy as well as in England, Germany, Sweden, South Africa, Canada, the United States, Brazil, China and Japan.”
