According to this theory, Kanye West might just be staging an enormous performance art piece

There might be a method to the madness that is Kanye West and his Twitter account lately. 

A conspiracy theory that seeks to explain his recent behavior originated with various posts on Kanye To The, a long-standing forum dedicated to the artist, this week. It made its way onto Twitter yesterday and has since gone viral because, well, damn. 

Our hero @Snowcone965, has compiled information from the forum and put it together in a comprehensive theory that might make some sense of West’s tweets, depending on how much you care.

Of course, this is all just a theory and should be taken with a grain of salt.

To kick things off, the brilliant Snowcone breaks down who we need to know and what specific Kanye tweets fall in line with the theory. 

First up is Tremaine Emory, a person you should know because he works closely with Kanye — and is rumored to be currently with him in Calabasas. 

The theory starts with images tweeted by Kanye, featuring black luminary and artist David Hammons and performance artist Joseph Beuys. 

“After Kanye tweeted these images, Tremaine quote tweeted them with this emoji: ♠️,” Snowcone tweeted. “I believe this is referring to Hammon’s work which aimed to ‘turn racist cliches (spade) on its head.'”

So Hammons M.O. was flipping the racial slur of the 1970s and incorporating it into his work. If this sounds slightly like Kanye wearing Trump’s controversial “Make America Great Again” hat,  keep reading.

Kanye’s tweet featuring Beuys, on the other hand, is an image of the performance artist and his work in which he locked himself in a room with a coyote for three days to “hopefully make the coyote ‘tolerant and accepting through Beuys’ desire to heal,'” according to Snowcone.

That leads us to what might be going on inside Kanye’s mind. 

“I believe Kanye is doing a modern take on Beuys piece with the coyote. He’s embraced what might be considered the coyote of today. Gotten close to it. Trump, Candace Owens, Alt Right,” Snowcone tweeted. “Maybe he sees this as a better chance to ‘tame’ the coyote than more traditional methods.”

Hmmm. Snowcone points out that the “free thoughts” Kanye has tweeted over the past month explain that he is open to expounding upon existing ideas and making them your own. 

A mood board tweeted by Kanye is another big clue that this might be all a giant act. It features Hammons and Beuys again — but also includes a drawing of half a face with the name “ANDY” written above it. 

If you’re willing to believe that this “ANDY” sketch is a reference to Andy Kaufman, then this theory just gets even stronger. Kaufman was a performance artist that consistently made audiences uncomfortable and pushed the boundaries of how a public figure could be seen.

Snowcone is suggesting that Kanye is using all three of these men as inspiration for his recent public choices. But Tremaine also left us with an even bigger clue.

Tremaine’s quote-tweet of the mood board reads “The prestige” with a spade, juggling figure, smiling face in a cowboy hat, and a pair wrestling — each which Snowcone thinks might, respectively, represent the MAGA hat Kanye was photographed wearing, Kanye’s juggling of many things, Beuys taming of the coyote, and one of Kaufman’s famous acts in which he wrestled with women

Snowcone also notes that the film The Prestige, might have a deeper role in all of this as well. 

So is this all an act? A giant performance piece that we’re living in? Or is this simply a way to try and explain the irrational actions of a popular, problematic musician?

Only Kanye can give us those answers. Till then, we’ll keep our notifications on for his tweets.
