WALID RAAD’S FESTIVAL OF GRATITUDE USES BIRTHDAY CAKES TO EXAMINE WORLDWIDE FASCISM
Don’t miss Walid Raad’s Festival of Gratitude NFTs, a series of computer-generated and lavishly decorated birthday cakes for global dictators, sheikhs, presidents, tyrants and controversial world leaders. A number of these NFT cakes and slices are currently live and available for acquisition!
The slices are individuated by the historical or mythological poisons or elixirs they are said to contain. The poisons include Anthrax, Ergot, Mercury, and Ricin, among others. The elixirs include Rapamycin, Heavy Water, and Golden Apple, among others. Gift a “poisoned” slice to someone you love or hate!
