Duet for Cannibals, a title borrowed from Susan Sontag's 1969 film of the same name, is a monthly screening and discussion program on colonialism and cannibalism as forms of cultural appropriation. Stichting Agentur and the Tropentheater bring together a selection of works by contemporary artists and filmmakers as well as footage from the Tropenmuseum's archive (formerly the Colonial Institute of Amsterdam and institute set up during the era of European colonialism to study and exhibit the culture of 'overseas people').

This is the final disucssion with the theme 'When One Swallows A Canon'. This includes an archieved film "Expeditions and Encounters", from New Guinea around 1925, a screen-test of Susan Sontag by Andy Warhol from 1964, and Susan Sontag's 1969 film "Duet for Cannibals". Food and drinks to follow.
