Having a party is fun. So is eating cake. But attention when it’s distributed among the guests: cutting a cake into pieces of exactly the same size is a skill … Daniel Šuljić created what’s presumably the finest animated massacre ever in oil on glass, drawing a scathing picture of our society which, alas, will last.
