Carnival is the place where everything is turned upside down, where freedom and the possibilities of changing social orders and prescribed roles reign. There has been never a better place to live David’s ideas rather than to just remember them.

Intergalactic Memorial Carnival for David Graber – Uppsala & online
Bring your David Graeber texts, books, instruments to play or just anything to celebrate and remember David Graeber. You’re strongly encouraged to wear a carnival mask or anything similarly carnivalesque. The memorial will consist of us together reading aloud from our favourite parts of David’s books and texts, and hopefully someone playing something. The format will be a mock university class, teaching session, very much in the spirit of David’s anarchist work and life.

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.)
