SA Taxi Foundation Art Award Winner & Top 5 Finalists
Through his winning work, Banele Khoza comments on the complexities of so-called “African identity”. “Being called African or identifying as African is a problematic identity, as Africans don’t share the same reality – there’s a vast difference between the countries within Africa. The internet has blanketed the world and offers one a global perspective. So, identifying as anything has become a choice” the artist states.
