Secretary Daniel Miller

Secretary Daniel Miller, of the fictional University of Muri, checks in at Radyo Shak about sponsoring Andre Breton's visit to Haiti for the 2015 Ghetto Biennale, as well as the other notable visits he has sponsored around the world.

The University of Muri was founded in 1917 by the critic and metaphysician Walter Benjamin, and the historian of Jewish mysticism Gershom Scholem. After many years of latency, the University was reactivated in 2012, and has since supported fellowships for the political theorist Hannah Arendt, the diplomat and translator Muhammed Asad, and the poet Fernando Pessoa. In 2015, the University collaborated with the Surrealist writer André Breton on his return to Haiti.


Ghetto Biennale: Radyo Shak


Radyo Shak was the independent broadcast voice of the Ghetto Biennale lakou 2015. Based in a shack in the Grand Rue Atis-Resistans compound of Port-au-Prince, Clocktower Radio's Radyo Shak broadcast Haiti's biennale happenings, from December 10-21, 2015. Radyo Shak Program Director Richard Fleming and Radyo Shak Project Director Jake Nussbaum hosted freeform radio in the bidonville, including Rara bands, interviews with locals, artists and writers, project updates, and Haitian revolutionary history over FM radio, Internet radio, and analog broadcast amplified through speakers and PA. The Kreyòl language programming from the Radyo Shak is available here: Geto Byenal: Radyo Shak (Kreyòl) In addition to the recordings archived here that were collected onsite during the biennale, Clocktower's Ghetto Biennale: Radyo Shak series includes additional material gathered from Haitian musicians, DJ sets, record labels, expats, artists, and more, to give our listeners a complete audio landscape of Haiti in the world today.
