Tania Bruguera’s (b. 1968) installation for the Havana Biennial of 2000 demonstrated the way in which a political regime very different from the way in which a political regime very different from the one prevailing in Italy can find profit in allying itself to contemporary art. The biennial exhibitions in Cuba have played a major role in establishing the island as a major cultural centre, despite the diplomatic isolation imposed on Castro’s government.
