ABUC brings together a group of Cuban artists as a personal overview on the current contemporary art scene in Havana. It is a glimpse into an island universe and a personal choice. Victor Gisler has regularly visited Havana and its artists’ studios over the last 8 years. This show aims to introduce to a western audience a group of four generations of artistic practises in Cuba – mythical, mysterious, sensual, dynamic, unique, bizarre and misunderstood.
The conditions and themes of these practices are precarious, not just economically, but also psychologically, spiritually and politically.
