MAKODE LINDE’S CAKE PERFORMANCE

Afro-Swedish artists Makode Linde has garned so much press in the past week due to a performance piece dubbed racist at Stockholm’s Moderna Museet. Linde has made race and identity a central focus of his work, specifically with his Afromantics series, which paints black faces on Western cultural icons. The recent cake performance invited gallery visitors to feed the artist his own body, represented in the form of a cake. In a recent interview with Hyperallergic, Linde states that he wishes to bring awareness to the underlying cause of this piece: female genital mutilation in Africa.
