Urbanibalism, the city from the perspective of ingestion is a community of like minded individuals that are united by a shared passion and commitment to the advance of ideas.


Civilization has come a long way that many now wonder how people will manage to survive and live in the near future because of population growth, and access to resources. There are talks about a lot of things going in terrible ways these days, especially human-made changes and its impact or potential impact on the earth.

There is a lot of fuss about population growth and overcrowding which has led to housing and industrial expansions. The population growth and its resultant expansion of housing and industry sectors in cities have alarm quite a good number of intellectuals, especially the conservationist.

History of Urbanibalism

There are now arguments that the rate at which cities are growing is dangerous, potentially unsustainable and will lead to crises. Consequently, there are now calls to decongest the cities by abandoning it for a virgin territory.

Plausible as these concerns may be, there is a huge hole in the argument that makes it totally shallow on a closer examination.  The history of man and that of the earth is a history of evolution brought about by adaptation. Simply put, man has evolved from being a simple organism to complex, intelligent being it is today by adapting to his ever changing environment. Of course, this is not to say that humanity is not immune to a sudden dangerous environmental change. The point to note here is his survivalist trait which has been exhibited over and over again for millions of years. This resilience is a shared the hallmark by humanity and its environment.

Our Campaigns

At the forefront of the campaign against abandoning city life is the Urbanibalism Community. Urbanibalism sees the city as nature. The community urges to see the city as a spontaneous convivium.

We should never abandon an existing city for a virgin territory." — Situationist motto

Against superficial aesthetics such as food design and bio art, Urbanibalism explores the historical roots and the living matter from any culinary art.

The community came up with the urbanibalism project in the early 2000s in Amsterdam and Berlin.  Ever since, the project has prompted numerous researches into the edibility of the city, forms of gustatory practice that asks how we as individuals can act together to positively parasite the city.
