Joekenneth Museau is a Brooklyn-bred artist who seeks to connect with the world around him through poignant storytelling. Museau’s penchant for style and spoken word poetry was what initially commanded the attention of spectators; both in real life and online. An undeniably unique talent, Joekenneth, continues to rivet audiences with his vivid writing style and his charismatic, passion-filled delivery.

Throughout his creative career, Joekenneth has sought to express himself in various mediums beyond writing; these include photography, creative consulting, and filmmaking. In the summer of 2013, Joekenneth self-published his first book Tales of a Troubled Romantic; a compilation of poetry and prose writings. His second book, Days After Your Departure, released in 2017 is the author's most vulnerable work to date. Best described as a multimedia memoir, Days finds Joekenneth processing life after his mother’s death. The book was later adapted as a short film with the same title; starring Joekenneth and directed by Sam Sneed. It can now be viewed on HBO streaming services and their partner channels.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Style is informed by a moment in time, and context is captured by presentation.

The Brooklyn Circus/BKc is a menswear brand that finds inspiration in the pages of history books. Everything we make has a story, from the construction of our varsity jackets to the looms where our denim is woven, and we take these elements into consideration when we cultivate our brand. We are here to tell the story of style throughout American history and to emphasize the power of presentation. We want to change the way Americans dress, one iconic silhouette at a time through the 100-Year Plan. Welcome to the circus.
