Apertura explores the way photography is understood and experienced in Cuba in times of transition. It includes photography-based installations, digital photomontage and “intervened photography” by eight contemporary Cuban artists. The exhibition explores how photography creates meaning in light of the technological and philosophical changes of the last decades. In contrast with the highly stylized documentation of the young Revolution, today’s innovation creates an imaginary space of aesthetic openness against or in play with a stagnant political reality.
