Radio Brown Atlantis is a radio show broadcast on Movement Radio in Athens and Radio alHara in Bethlehem, that invites practitioners in sound art, music and performative thinking. Collectively, they explore the entanglements between Brown and Black people from the African diaspora and South Asia, displaced through enslavement and indenture, and connected through experiences of oceanic colonial routes. Using storytelling, music and poetry, Radio Brown Atlantis reimagines their stories and histories underwater, in an Atlantis at the bottom of the Indian Ocean, and the subaquatic ecologies and life forms surrounding them below.

For the exhibition Radio Brown Atlantis, Ayesha Hameed has collaborated with guests from the first season to recompose each episode as a score, which together combine to fill the space of Bonniers Konsthall, knowing that a Brown Atlantis is cartographically unmappable and that the sonics of a radio show cannot be fully made visible.

A new episode of Radio Brown Atlantis will be recorded with a live audience during the exhibition at Bonniers Konsthall.

The exhibition also marks the launch of an extended collaboration between Bonniers Konsthall and Ayesha Hameed with the aim of translating Radio Brown Atlantis into a book.
