Background[edit]

Kunst features contributions from guest musician William Wilson and Swedish band Morlocks.[2] The album cover was designed by longtime KMFDM cover artist Aidan "Brute!" Hughes.[4] He said the album cover, a "chainsaw-wielding amazon", which Facebook removed from KMFDM's page, was created to support Russian punk rock group Pussy Riot and Ukrainian protest group FEMEN.[4] The song "Pussy Riot" was also written in support of the former.[2]
