Culture Minister Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth (right) opened a party last Saturday by slicing a piece of this cake.
A macabre scene with racist undertones took place on Saturday when Swedish minister of culture Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth attended a tax funded party for the Stockholm cultural elite.
The self-proclaimed "anti-racist" Liljeroth declared the party officially started by slicing a piece of a cake depicting a stereotypical African woman.
Photos from the party at World Art Day have already been released on Facebook and are now going viral in social media.
The shocking photos show several established left-wing members of the Stockholm cultural elite watching and laughing as Minister of Culture Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth slices a cake depicting a black African woman with minstrel-esque face.
Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth was invited to open the festivities by performing a clitoridectomy on the cake, which she did by slicing off the part of the cake depicting female genitalia.
She then proceeded to feed that part of the cake to a performance artist, done up in blackface, his head protruding through the table.
