MOCA x 27N: Panel with Tania Bruguera

Lecture Virtual

On January 7th, 2021, MOCA will host a virtual panel with artist and activist Tania Bruguera and other members of the 27N collective of Cuban activists.

On the 27th of November, 2020, more than 300 artists, intellectuals, and Cuban citizens presented themselves at the Ministry of Culture to demand the government follow through on their supposed commitment to freedom and civil rights. This protest came as a result of police violence exerted the previous day against members of the San Isidro Movement—an activist group who over the course of the past few years has been vocal in demanding greater freedom of expression in Cuba. Using social media as a tool to bring awareness to their cause, they have sparked renewed attention and urgency in calling for an end to government censorship and repression against all artists, intellectuals, and activists in Cuba. This community adopted the name 27N and together have staged peaceful protests asking for freedom of artistic expression in the face of government repression.

MOCA supports the right to free expression in all mediums and across the globe, and are hosting this event to bring attention to the struggle taking place for these rights in Cuba.

Please join us. RSVP here.



El día 7 de enero de 2021, MOCA presentará un panel con Tania Bruguera y otros miembros del grupo 27N.

El 27 de noviembre de 2020 más de 300 artistas, intelectuales y ciudadanos cubanos acudieron al Ministerio de Cultura, en su condición de garante y mediador, para exigir el cumplimiento de sus libertades y derechos ciudadanos. El detonante fue la violencia policial ejercida el día anterior contra el Movimiento San Isidro, y también el aumento de la censura y represión contra artistas, intelectuales y activistas. Usando las redes sociales como medio principal, el grupo ha resaltado la urgencia de sus peticiones relacionadas con la libertad de expresión y denunciar la escalada represiva contra todos artistas, intelectuales, y activistas en Cuba. Esta comunidad adoptó el nombre de 27N y juntos han organizado manifestaciones pacíficas pidiendo la libertad de expresión artística en respuesta a la represión del gobierno cubano.

MOCA apoya el derecho de libre expresión en todos los medios y partes del mundo, y presentamos este evento para darle atención al esfuerzo que ocurre en Cuba hacia estos fines.

Acompáñanos. Reserva aquí.
