Cybernetic Cannibalism

Cristiano Marinho and Helena Klang

What is there in common between The Cannibalist Manifesto, written by the Brazilian poet Oswald de Andrade, in 1928, and online file sharing in the 21st century? What is the cultural diversity of Brazil – a society in constant formation – able to offer us to analyze the remix culture in the digital age? This work aim to investigate why is Brazil’s culture revealed as an inspiration for concepts as Free Culture and how the country was transformed in a laboratory of experimentation of new roads for the intellectual property debate.
