Tupi or not Tupi, That is the Question: Social Innovation in Brazil

2,170 views

Published on

The Manifesto Antropófago (Cannibal Manifesto in English) was published in 1928 by the Brazilian poet and polemicist Oswald de Andrade. Its argument is that Brazil's history of "cannibalizing" other cultures is its greatest strength, while playing on the modernists' primitivist interest in cannibalism as an alleged tribal rite. Cannibalism becomes a way for Brazil to assert itself against European post-colonial cultural domination. The Manifesto's iconic line is "Tupi or not Tupi: that is the question." The line is simultaneously a celebration of the Tupi, who practiced certain forms of ritual cannibalism (as detailed in the 16th century writings of Andre Thevet, Hans Staden, and Jean de Lery), and a metaphorical instance of cannibalism: it eats Shakespeare (Wikipedia). Brazil is known for being a leader in middle size planes market, biofuels, flex motors, deep see drilling, large oil reserves, biotechnology, etc. But not many people reckon Brazilian Social Innovation. I will show a rapid kaleidoscope of images to give you a glimpse of what is happening in Brazil in terms of Social Innovation from global impacting initiatives to very local, almost individualized projects that show why Brazil is the place for user-driven innovation.
