What if we are losing the humanity in arts? | Vanessa Kisuule | TEDxVienna
Art is superficial. Art can be commodified. Art, like most things in our modern world, could be made by robots. Spoken word artist and writer Vanessa Kisuule grapples with the notion of how we will create and consume art in an increasingly technological age and whether we need to re-think the purpose of creativity.
Vanessa’s poetry is personal but always extends itself into something universal: the need to be heard and understood by each other. Vanessa feels that poetry provides an alternate history beyond the textbooks; one altogether more nuanced and more human.
