CIMAM supports Tania Bruguera
CIMAM wants to express its deep concern for the situation of legal vulnerability that Tania Bruguera is currently facing in Havana, following the artist’s initiative in December 2014 to re-stage her performance Tatlin’s Whisper on Havana’s Revolution Square, giving people access to an open microphone for one minute.
For more than ninety days she has had her passport withheld while waiting for a statement by a public prosecutor on charges of allegedly inciting public disorder, resisting authority and incitement to break the law.
CIMAM is for freedom, respect and civilized exchange, never for repression, violence nor pressure. We support the work of artists dedicated to projects based on freedom of artistic expression, and we join the different initiatives demanding the Cuban authorities to drop the charges against Tania Bruguera.
