Event Description
The Order of Autophagia: The supper of terror...

The Order of Autophagia: The supper of terror, the lunch for the uncanny, unapologetic snacks on the apocalyptic moment.

The Order of Autophagia is a midnight dinner party, inviting you to consider a perspective on cannibalism that speaks urgently—and with dark humour—to our times. Could the practice of autophagia, where humans self-cycle their energy by eating themselves, challenge our culture of overconsumption and waste?

In this anarchic digital experience, celebrated artist Natahsa Tontey challenges colonial assumptions about cannibalism and offers a speculative way of thinking about anthropophagy, posing radical solutions to our ecological problems and our bad habit of consumption. In homage to Grand Guignol—the gruesome Parisian realist theatre of the 1890s—Tontey creates an immersive digital world and invites guests to attend her performative midnight feast. You are invited to dial in (and dine) from your own home, in costume, on faux cannibalistic recipes as you enter The Order of Autophagia.
