Mr Wolff then points out Kanye is no stranger to flipping symbols on their head, referring to a photo of him wearing a jacket with the Confederate Flag on it in 2013.
During a radio interview at the time, West told haters to “react how you want. Any energy is good energy… I took the Confederate flag and made it my flag.”
Aside from artwork from Beuys and Hammons, there is another artist that he believes West is taking inspiration from: Andy Kaufman.
Kaufman was a comedian, professional wrestler and performance artist who made his name in the 1970s for putting his audiences in uncomfortable situations.
Kanye posted a picture of his ‘mood board’, which featured the work of the Beuys and Hammons alongside what looks to be a drawn picture of Kaufman, with the word ‘ANDY’ written over it.
