In 2019, Cuba celebrated the 60th anniversary of the revolution. In 1959, Fidel Castro and Ché Guevarra ousted dictator Batista and the country entered a utopian future. But caught between the hammer and anvil of Soviet communism and the American embargo, Cuba was forced to survive and adhered in principle to the socialist values of the revolution.
Against this background, an extensive photography project was set up with four Cuban and four European participants. With the current reality of the island as their starting point, they each developed a project that together provides a nuanced picture of this complex country. The eight projects contrast the photographic interpretations of the local artists with those of the Europeans who made their work during several intensive work trips. The project starts from 'heritage' in the broadest sense of the word and focuses on the past, present and future of Cuba.
