This is one of the creepiest, supposedly not racist, masquerading as art, pieces of all time. It is one of the most horrible things we have ever seen…in the form of a cake. But one artist thought that he was making a statement about women’s circumcision with a black “female mutilation” cake.
Apparently, in Stockholm, Sweden, there is an event called World Art Day and the celebration was not only attended by Sweden’s minister of culture Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth, but she took the time to participate in the fun, according to Global Post. She saw the black woman made of cake and cut into it. And to add insult to injury, the male artist Makode Aj Linde, told the world:
“This is after getting my vagaga mutilated by the minister of culture, Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth,” Linde wrote on his Facebook page. “Before cutting me up she whispered ‘Your life will be better after this’ in my ear.”
Outrage from the National Afro-Swedish Association immediately ensued and they want her fired! They felt that Liljeroth should’ve never been involved in the spectacle where others would cut the cake and the artist, who played the head on the cake, would scream out in horror. Liljeroth thinks that the group should be mad with the artist and defended her participation saying:
“He (Aj Linde) claims that it challenges a romanticized and exoticized view from the west about something that is really about violence and racism,” Liljeroth said. “Art needs to be provocative.”
