If the Bible, the most singularly significant publication in the ancient canon of western tradition, were updated to reflect our modern society, what would it look like? It would likely be this. The Book of Yeezus‘ authors have replaced all the word mentions of “God” with “Kanye” and “Yeezus”.
The Book Of Yeezus is a creative vision, bound in a gold leaf-etched, illustrated, black leather book that details the story of Genesis–for the new age. In its foreword, the authors explore our culture’s state of religiosity and its capacity for wonder. How does spirituality, an evolutionary reflex, manifest in a digitized world? Why does Kanye West take such outsized significance in the lives of many?
The Book of Yeezus is an interventionist art, coffee-table novelty, that will appeal to Kanye fans everywhere and those made curious by this enormous cultural phenomenon.
