While we're in the process of creating our own manifesto, I couldn't help but remember this significant art manifesto, that may serve as a source of ideas and inspiration for us here at hitRECord. I collected some information regarding The Cannibalist Manifesto (Manifesto Antropófago).
The Cannibalist Manifesto
The Cannibalist Manifesto, written by Oswald de Andrade (1890 - 1954), was published in May 1928, in the first edition of the recently founded Revista de Antropofagia, the vehicle for the Brazilian Cannibalist movement. Through its metaphoric language loaded with poetic aphorisms full of humour, the Manifesto became the theoretical kernel of this movement which aimed to rethink the question of Brazil's cultural dependency. 
Andrade creates a new and uniquely Brazilian style to exhibit themes of anti-colonialism, Brazilian modernism/nationalism, and tribalistic primitivism. He is highly critical of foreign and European influences on Brazilian culture and urges the intellectual community of Brazil to forge its own identity in the postcolonial world. Andrade believed that Brazil's greatest strength rested in its ability to “cannibalize” other cultures by incorporating them, re-appropriating them, and regurgitating them as an entirely new and unique creation.
The "Cannibalist Manifesto” consists of a series of non-linked, small sections of prose separated by dividers. It cannot be classified strictly as either prose or poetry. It does not have rhyme, meter, or stanza structure. It also utilizes many sentence fragments and seemingly unfinished statements without verbs, clear subject, or direction of action. There is no coherent narration or plot progression and the tone is revolutionary and mobilizing. 
"Down with Memory as a source of custom. The renewal of personal experience." [Oswald de Andrade]
The Chaos Communication Congress is a alternative contemporary group that investigates questions of technology in its relation to social development and culture. Their 26th convention featured what they call "cybernetic cannibalism," an update of Andrade's cannibalism for the 21st century.
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? (...)
“Only the cannibalism unites us. Socially. Economically. Philosophically.” This statement of Oswald de Andrade (1890 - 1954) was published in The Cannibalist Manifesto, in 1928, six years after the Semana de Arte Moderna [Modern Art Week], landmark of the Brazilian modernist movement. In the Manifesto, Andrade recounts the history of the Brazilian civilization by means of well sharp metaphors and affirms Brazil’s vocation for cultural cannibalism: “I am only interested in what is not mine. Law of Man. Law of the Cannibal"
What are the youths of all countries around the planet doing with the digital technology today? We eat, and we eat a lot. We eat the songs of our idols, vomit news creations and spread in the net. We eat images from media, we appropriate it, criticize it and subvert it. The bricolage, mash-up or remix techniques presented in the post-modern culture, are nothing more than cybernetic cannibalism. For Lawrence Lessig (2007), “we could describe it using modern computer terminology as kind of read-write culture. It’s a culture where people participate in the creation and in the re-creation of their culture. In that sense is read-write”.
