In advance of their departure, Danesch and Rych have collected film and video works, representing multiple communities in the eight different countries involved in Küba: Journey Against the Current, featuring ethnic, religious and linguistic minorities, but also non-homogenous groups marginalized due to other factors. These films, which are screened at each venue as part of the Minority Logbox archive, have been individually selected in order to reflect the cultural, geographical, political and social situation of these communities and individuals, widening the focus on transnational social groups often overlooked by administrative descriptions and thereby deprived of legal status.
DURATION: May 1 - September 9, 2006
Commissioned by Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary
for the exhibition project Küba: Journey Against The Current
