Ep 30 — An Artist and a Kitsch-painter sit down to talk about Cancel Culture | Interview with Magnus Vanebo | The Cave of Apelles

Magnus Vanebo is an artist, studying at The National Academy of Art in Norway (better known as KhiO).
He visits The Cave to talk about his personal experience with Cancel Culture.
Last year, as the academy wanted to increase Social Justice training, and saw «structural racism» everywhere, Vanebo objected — in the beginning as the only one (out of more than 700 people).
He wanted knowledge from his professors, not propaganda.
The result was the mandatory accusations of bigotry and racism, topped with attempts to have him removed from social media.
Vanebo touches on subjects such as Woke aggression, the biggest threat to «creative freedom» — regardless of what you are making.

⭐ Watch the BONUS-material where Tuv and Vanebo continued their conversation, touching on subjects such as the Trickster Archetype, “Structural Racism” as a Projection, Carpenter’s They Live, and The Squander Ombudsman:

The centerpiece was “The Onlookers” by Magnus Vanebo and “Old Woman” by Jan-Ove Tuv.
