4 FunkStaden, 2007 Dias and Riedweg constructed a site-specific three screen video that referenced its palatial environment by referring to the colonialist mentality of 18th-century Germany. FunkStaden is a three screen video projection that begins with images from a book published in 1557 by Hans Staden. Staden (c –c. 1579) a German soldier and mariner, who made two voyages to South America in Spanish or Portuguese ships Key Points: What its about Based from Hans Staden’s book about Portuguese natives and their “savage” ways… Staden wrote about the practices of the natives giving the perspective of unruly persons who engage in acts like cannibalism giving Europeans more opportunity to use violence against the natives. They compare the encounter told by Staden to the “Funky” culture of Rio de Janeiro today. The comparison between 1557 and today can be seen by the use of Staden’s wood carvings juxtaposed with video recorded in Graham Coulter-Smith

5 Os Raimundos, os Severinos e os Franciscos This work addresses issues related to housing, immigration and urban space. Were invited to participate in the project, northeastern immigrants working as janitors and caretakers of residential buildings in Sao Paulo, with the proposal that their workplace and residence in the building. Designed for the 24 Sao Paulo Biennial, whose theme was cannibalism, the paper discusses cannibalism ethics governing relations between social classes in the state capital. The representation of the cramped closets, garage inhabited by porters worked as a metaphor of social invisibility of this group. - Mauricio Dias & Walter Riedweg Source: Web /sesc/videobrasil/vbonline/bd/index.asp%3Fcd_entidade%3D556646%26cd_idio ma%3D18531&ei=3otdTb_GKYSasAPEnIXMCA&sa=X&oi=translate&ct=result &resnum=1&ved=0CBkQ7gEwAA&prev=/search%3Fq%3DOs%2BRaimundos,% 2Bos%2BSeverinos%2Be%2Bos%2BFranciscos%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfirefox- a%26hs%3Db5q%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26prmd%3Divnsb Key Points: What its about - Extension of social cannibalism project theme - Sao Paulo Immigrants - Urban space: Janitors in Residential Buildings - Metaphor of social invisibility of this group
