Directors, drag queens and knitwear prodigies: the culture-makers inspiring Björk right now

In this exclusive interview, as her exhibition Björk Digital opens in London, Björk reveals the artists making an impression on her

Björk is talking about the future in a way that only Björk can. Discussing technology and culture, she says that new times give us new tools but only we can decide what should be done with them. “Are we gonna be lazy or let them stimulate us to be expressive? Are we going to create or destroy? Doesn’t matter if it was fire, the knife, the gun, the atom bomb, tech, or whatever. These things don’t come with humanity or a soul. We have to put it there.”
