When artist Makode Linde dressed up as a pastry depicting a caricatured African woman, he was doing more than just embarrassing Sweden's cultural minister. You are supposed to be shocked by the photos of the cake, baked in the shape of a contorted, female, black body. You are meant to be appalled by the laughing crowd of white Swedes, egging on Swedish Minister of Culture Lena Adelsohn-Liljeroth as she cuts a slice from the cake's crotch. And you are absolutely meant to be horrified by the living human face, painted in Golliwogg blackface style, looking back at the chuckling crowd, and screaming in mock pain as the cake is cut. The face belongs to male artist Makode Linde, who designed the cake. The scene is disturbing, awkward, repulsive, even painful, and that's precisely the point. If you see that, then you're in on it.

In these idyllic surroundings she came into contact with nature at an early stage in her life, and a deep association with natural forms was to be an inspiration in her work. From her family, Hilma af Klint inherited a great interest for mathematics and botany. She showed an early ability in visual art and, after the family moved to Stockholm, she studied at Tekniska skolan in Stockholm Konstfack today , where she learned portraiture and landscape painting. She was admitted at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts at the age of twenty. This was the main cultural hub in the Swedish capital at that time. Hilma af Klint began working in Stockholm, gaining recognition for her landscapes, botanical drawings, and portraits. Her conventional painting became the source of financial income, but her 'life's work' remained a quite separate practice. In her younger sister Hermina died, and it was at this time that the spiritual dimension of her life began to develop. Her experiments in spiritual investigation started in In she met Rudolf Steiner , the founder of the Anthroposophical Society , who was visiting Stockholm.
The artist Carolina Falkholt says it is a conceptual work of art. She considered the age of the pupils who will go to the school - year olds - before scribbling common degrading words about women and their bodies on the wall. She then painted over them, with flaming red and orange colours. And on top of that, a feather-like pattern featuring the lower parts of a female body, the angle slightly unclear. However, these days, it is more known as "the vagina painting". The e-mail she got from the local council read: "Your painting is nice and has beautiful colours. But we are not happy with the object on it. Is it possible for you to come here and repaint it to something more subtle? And I don't understand why they even ask an artist if all they want is an inoffensive decoration," says Carolina Falholt, to Swedish Radio P4 Extra. After the e-mail was leaked to the press, a statement on the council website saying that the painting would be removed was replaced by a message saying no formal decision has yet been made about what they will do with the painting.
