the zeitgeist


Japaness contemporary artist Takashi Murakam, who was the art director for Graduation explaining the concept for the artwork. 

“The cover is based on Kanye’s theme of student life. School. It’s a place of dreams, of righteousness, a place to have fun. It’s also occasionally a place where you experience the rigid dogma of the human race. Kanye’s music scrapes sentimentality and aggressiveness together like sandpaper, and he uses his grooves to unleash this tornado that spins with the zeitgeist of the times. I too wanted to be swept up and spun around in that tornado.”

the degree to which hetero sex can be aggressively normalised and pushed into every level and every corner of the zeitgeist while simultaneously painting even the tamest display of same sex affection as ‘adult’ or ‘corrupting’ or ‘inappropriate’ is just soulcrushing on a whole bunch of different levels
