Intergalactic Memorial Carnival for David Graeber
“We will remain faceless because we refuse the spectacle of celebrity, because we are everyone, because the carnival beckons, because the world is upside down, because we are everywhere.By wearing masks, we show that who we are is not as important as what we want, and what we want is everything for everyone.” David Graeber

On Sunday, October 11, we came together to mourn and to celebrate the life of David Rolfe Graeber – a teacher, a writer and a comrade.
As in the Venetian Carnival’s, that David loved so much, we were all masks – no matter whether we were young or old, rich or poor, scientists or retired, women or men and what party we belong to. We were all masks, and we were all people, united through the death and laughing in its face. From Korea and Australia to Europe and Russia, from New York, London and Brazil, in more than 200 places worldwide, we were all together on that day.
Thanks to our friends from Steirischer Herbst, we organized a 12-hour uninterrupted broadcast, which many people watched. You can download our press kit with photos of Carnival here.

Carnival at the Foundry (Galicia)
Pretending to be someone else is central to any carnival. At the Foundry, we will continue this tradition by reenacting a roundtable with David and others. After this reenactment, there will be time to discuss David’s legacy and all its future echoes, guided by the defiant insistence that another world is possible. (And for drinks, which are also central to any carnival.)
