Ep 116 Keneilwe Mokoena talks abt her suicide attempts , memes , the pandemic , #newearth n more

Greetings, World.

Today, I'm excited to welcome visual artist and content creator Keneilwe Mokeona back for another episode. Our conversation covers a wide variety of topics, with Keneilwe giving us an honest take on her two failed suicide attempts and how it has affected her mentally and artistically. We also discuss her dark sense of humour and meme culture, and we both share our views on how comedy can be used to lift our moods. Moving on, we delve into the art industry and unpack topics such as why the traditional opening of an exhibition is outdated in 2023, and explore alternative ways to reimagine the buying of art. Additionally, we talk about the future of the art industry and where we imagine it to be moving towards.
