Cultural Anthropophagy: The 24th Bienal de Sao Paulo 1998
The 24th Bienal de São Paulo remade art history from a Brazilian perspective, and presented a new model for exhibition-making in the era of post-colonial globalisation. The show employed the Brazilian notion of anthropophagy as both concept and method; it encouraged 'contamination' and 'cannibalisation' of the canon and attempted to rethink the role of exhibition-based education. Detailed documentation reconstructs the Bienal, with extensive analysis provided by Lisette Lagnado. Further contributions are made by Dias & Riedweg, Andrea Fraser, Paulo Herkenhoff, Pablo Lafuente, Mirtes Marins de Oliveira, Carmen Morsch and Catrin Seefranz, and Renato Sztutman.- from the back cover
