Following the release of his highly anticipated tenth studio album, Kanye West has been spotted visiting several art galleries in Berlin. DONDA was released with no album artwork aside from a black square, leading some to speculate that this trip may be part of the artist’s search for visual inspiration.

Kanye is photographed with headphones on and dressed in an all-black outfit, sporting a KW Institute for Contemporary Art hoodie, cargo pants, military boots, and a balaclava on his tours of iconic venues in the city including the Pergamon Museum, the Boros collection, the Julia Stoschek Collection, an exhibition held at the infamous Berghain nightclub, and the KW Institute for Contemporary Art.

According to KW curator Anna Gritz, Kanye took particular interest in the works of Berlin-based contemporary artist Michael Stevenson. Stevenson’s work titled Serene Velocity in Practice MC510/CS193 was a particular sculptural installation that caught Kanye’s attention. The display is inspired by two unrelated university courses taught by billionaire entrepreneur Peter Thiel and Christian pastor John Wimber. “Kanye seems to have resonated with how this work deconstructs the distribution notions of industry, power and faith, through academic institutions and the media,” Gritz told The Art Newspaper.

For more on the Michael Stevenson exhibition Disproof Does Not Equal Disbelief, head over to the KW website.
