Lecture | Artist Talk: Art and Political Activism (online)


Hamlet Lavastida (b. 1983 Havana, Cuba) is a political activist by way of his art. Lavastida's provocative position as artist highlights a distinctly Cuban spirit of cultural resistance. His work reconstructs old Cuban political and military propaganda. Using an X-Acto knife and paper the artist delicately and skillfully appropriates the logos of institutions taken as sacred as the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC), the Ministry of the Interior (MININT) or the infamous Military Units to Aid Production (UMAP) revealing an absurdity of these historic branding tactics and at the same time examines and demystifies the tools of propaganda. Issues such as cultural policy, design, public sphere, archeology and historiography are addressed from different media such as video, collages, performances, public interventions and installations.
