Thanksgiving Eve: Matteo Pasquinelli on Cannibalism

November 24, 2010 at 7pm


You are invited tonight (the day before Thanksgiving) at 7pm for a discussion about cannibalism with Matteo Pasquinelli, who is visiting from Berlin. Our discussion will revolve primarily around these two texts:

  • "The Cannibalist Manifesto" by Oswald de Andrade (
  • "Anthropophagic Subjectivity" by Suely Rolnik (

The conversation will be followed by a dinner in which Matteo will prepare several cactus dishes. Please bring a dish or a drink that responds to the topic!
