Inclinations #4: Eating the “I” or Eating the Eye? Stanzas from the Manifesto of Urban Cannibalism
Wednesday, July 17, 7:30, 2013
Or Gallery Berlin is pleased to present Matteo Pasquinelli and Wietske Maas in _Eating the “I” or Eating the Eye?
The Manifesto of Urban Cannibalism uncovers the Stomach of the universe against the isolation of the Eye that dominates the artistic spectrum. The Manifesto takes ingestion, rather than sensation, as the medium of our experience of the world.
Living in Amsterdam and Berlin, Wietske Maas and Matteo Pasquinelli established the Urbanibalism project in early 2007 exploring the Umwelten of different cities and organizing convivia also in Utrecht, Brussels, Melbourne and Istanbul. The Manifesto of Urban Cannibalism has been translated in Italian, Polish, Turkish and Portuguese.
The presentation of work revolves around the posing of a question that is the thrust of a guest’s activities. It goes without saying that questions may not be answered, but are grappled with in their unresolvability. An inclination is the force of attraction to a question (without a straightforward response), yet also to each other, as a community who partakes in a common quest(ion).
