Paper long abstract:

This paper will focus on the works of indigenous artists Denilson Baniwa and Jaider Esbell. Specifically, it will concentrate on these artists' dialogue with São Paulo’s 'modernismo' and their take on 'antropofagia'. Both artists have engaged directly with 'antropofagia' in some of their performances and other visual works. Some of their works’ techniques and strategies can also be described as 'antropofágicas', suggesting that 'antropofagia' has been, in many ways, a form of inspiration for them. At the same time, both artists have produced works that are profoundly critical of 'antropofagia'’s coloniality, Examining some of their works, this paper will situate their work within current debates about 'antropofagia'.
