African Art Activism through Fintech

Karabo Morule, Capital Art
In conversation with: Vimbayi Kajese, Stanford University

Karabo Morule is the founder of Capital Art, which is an art fintech and the first art collection management service that is focused on collectors of modern and contemporary African art. Morule is also a non-executive director at TymeBank, South Africa’s first bank to have its core banking system in the cloud. In this conversation with Stanford adjunct lecturer Vimbayi Kajese, Morule discusses the African art market, including the ways it’s been shaped by injustice and the opportunities it presents for cultural preservation and celebrating marginalized artists. Through her company’s technology, she is creating a more inclusive African art ecosystem by encouraging people of many income levels to view themselves as collectors.
