Cossacks in Cuba: The Soviet visual legacy in Cuban art

Location: documenta Halle

Languages: English, Spanish

Directions

In the early 1980s, the “cossacks,” as graduates of Soviet art academies were called, began to arrive in Cuba thanks to an exchange program with the USSR. The newcomers were stigmatized by the same officials who had awarded them scholarships, in addition to entering an artistic community very different from the one they had left.

Cossacks in Cuba: The Soviet visual legacy in Cuban art by lumbung member Instituto de Artivismo Hannah Arendt (INSTAR) sheds light on this overlooked chapter of Cuban art history.

With kind support of The Jorge M. Pérez Family Foundation
