To Open the Mouth, to Show the Tongue: Anthropophagic Gestures in Brazilian Art

Eduardo Jorge de Oliveira, André Masseno

Page 143-151


Abstract: This essay seeks to articulate a detailed reading through two anatomical selections – the mouth and tongue—in Brazilian art from the end of the 1960s. The reading is part of a shift in the matrix of Oswald de Andrade’s “Anthropophagic Manifesto,” originally published in the Revista de Antropofagia in 1928, whose interpretations spread in Brazil during the second half of the 20th century. This study mobilises elements of the manifesto and its resonance in the works of artists such as Anna Maria Maiolino, Lygia Pape, Paulo Bruscky, and Lenora de Barros.

Keywords: mouth, tongue, Anthropophagic Manifesto, Oswald de Andrade, Brazilian art
