Paris Marx is joined by Nika Roza Danilova to discuss how COVID-19 is affecting artists, the privileged worldview of tech, the human essence of art, and why that can’t be replicated by artificial intelligence. She also provides advice on how to best support artists and her hopes for what a better world for artists might look like.
Nika Roza Danilova makes music under the name Zola Jesus. Her fifth studio album, Okovi, was released in 2017.
