Kanye West hält Rede an Harvard University

 

Kanye West hat vor seinem Konzert in Boston eine unangekündigte Rede am Graduiertenkolleg für Design der Universität Harvard gehalten. 

Darin sprach er über die Verbindung von Architektur und Design. Er glaube außerdem, dass Design die Welt retten könne:

"I really do believe that the world can be saved through design, and everything needs to actually be 'architected'. 

Laut missinfo.tv sollen die Studenten nicht gewusst haben, dass Kanye ihre Uni besuchen würde. Lediglich, dass 300 Karten für das Konzert ausgegeben würden, sei ihnen bekannt gewesen. 

Begleitet wurde er dabei von seiner Verlobten Kim Kardashian. Sie postete ein Bild der Aktion bei Instagram.  

Ebenso dabei war sein Creative Director Virgil Abloh. Laut einem Instagram-Eintrag Ablohs war die Rede Teil von Kanyes DONDA-Vorlesungsreihe, es werden also vermutlich noch weitere Reden dieser Art folgen:

"Just gave a talk at Harvard GSD with Kanye. Super surreal. #DONDA design lecture series #yeezustour"

DONDA ist Kanye Wests kreative Multimedia-Agentur. Sie ist nach seiner verstorbener Mutter Donda benannt.

Die komplette Rede:

“…So after walking through here I decided that I wanted to make sure for anyone that didn’t have tickets tonight that you all could have tickets to the show. So anybody who wants to come tonight, you can have tickets for the entire office!

But I just wanted to tell you guys: I really do believe that the world can be saved through design, and everything needs to actually be “architected.” And this is the reason why even some of the first DONDA employees were architects that started designing t-shirts instead of buildings. But just to see the work actually [...] to be actualized.

If I sit down and talk to Oprah for, you know, two hours, the conversation is about realization, self realization, and actually seeing your creativity happen in front of you. So the reason why I turn up so much in interviews is because I’ve tasted what it means to create and be able to impact, and affect in a positive way.

And I know that there’s more creativity to happen. And I know that there’s traditionalists that hold back the good thoughts and there’s people in offices that stop the creative people, and [who] are intimidated by actual good ideas.

I believe that utopia is actually possible—but we’re led by the least noble, the least dignified, the least tasteful, the dumbest, and the most political. So in no way am I a politician—I’m usually at my best politically incorrect and very direct. I really appreciate you guys’ willingness to learn and hone your craft, and not be lazy about creation.

I’m very inspired to be in this space. Tonight, this show, if you come see it — I’m a bit self conscious because I’m showing it to architects. So the stage does have flaws in it. It’s an expression of emotion so give me a pass on that. And that’s basically all I have to say so thank you very much.”
