Swedish Minister of Culture Cuts Into ‘African Woman Cake’ [Video]
Sweden’s Minister of Culture, Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth, cut a slice of a cake depicting a naked African woman, sparking accusations of racism and insensitivity from the African community in Sweden.
The cake cutting took place during an art installation in connection with World Art Day on April 15th, according to local Sweden news reports.
From Sweden’s paper “The Local”:
As part of the installation, which was reportedly meant to highlight the issue of female circumcision, the culture minister began cutting a large cake shaped like a black woman, symbolically starting at the c******s.
Makode Aj Linde, the artist who created the installation and whose head is part of the cake cut by the minister, wrote about the “genital mutilation cake” on his Facebook page.
