Tatlin’s Whisper #6: Havana version

Artist/Author: Tania Bruguera | Reference: D1534 | Type: DVD

Tatlin’s Whisper #6 (Havana version was a participative action at the central courtyard of the Wifredo Lam Centre (the institution that organizes the Havana Biennial). A stage with a podium, two microphones, and a huge golden-brown curtain as a background were placed at one end. The set was reminiscent of the staple set used by Fidel Castro for his speeches. The microphones were connected to an amplifier with speakers, one of them at the building’s entrance, pointing to the street. Two actors, a woman and a man dressed in Cuban military uniforms, stood at each side of the podium. The woman had a white dove in her hands. Admission to the event was free, but the space was filled with people from the Cuban art world, mainly young artists, students, writers, and Cuban and international visitors to the Biennial. Two handed disposable cameras were handed out to the public by Bruguera to document the event. Then people were summoned to speak their minds on the podium for one minute. In other art contexts this would not have any special relevance. In Cuba, it was an historic event: for the first time in half a century a free public tribune was allowed for people to express their ideas.This documentation has been presented with permission of the artist as part of the Performance Matters, Performing Idea, Performance Lecture Archive; an interactive video archive housed at the Whitechapel Gallery between 2-9 October 2010. The archive looked at examples of the performance lecture as a form of artistic and critical expression and its potential to address a broad range of cultural issues and philosophical ideas.
