mordo

mordo is an interdisciplinary art collective formed by contemporary artist Aline Baiana and anthropologists Camila de Caux and Eric Macedo. “Mordo” means “I bite” in Portuguese. The core concept, the bite, aims to join the anti-colonial struggle through research and artistic practices that focus on issues related to otherness, the environment and feminism, questioning anthropocentric and Western-centric ontologies.Eric Macedo is anthropologist. He completed his PhD at the National Museum of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in 2016 and lives in Berlin since 2018. He is currently a fellow at Akademie Schloss Solitude. His work deals with questions of difference and ethnocentrism, human-environment relations, colonialism and, more recently, with intersections between anthropology and science fiction.
