Political Timing Specific

Program in Latin American Studies Lunch Lecture

Following a brief overview of Political Timing Specific, the lecture will focus on Bruguera’s latest performance #YoTambienExijo (I Also Demand), where she attempted to put a microphone at Revolution Square, in Havana, open to all, without censorship.

Performance art can be used as a channel to open avenues for freedom among, not only the elite, but the general Cuban population. This is a time where civic education should be at the forefront, giving answers to the intense social transition ahead, helping not only to inform one’s rights but how to enact them. This is one of the objectives of The Hannah Arendt International Institute of Artvism, a new space being developed by Bruguera in Havana.
