Activismo: Art and Dissidence in Cuba

Phil Sugden, assistant professor of art at Bluffton University, and Carole Elchert, assistant professor of communication at University of Findlay, will preview their documentary “Activismo: Art and Dissidence in Cuba” for Forum at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 24 in Yoder Recital Hall. The event is free and open to the public.

In December 2015, Sugden and Elchert traveled to Havana, Cuba, to interview artists and gather footage for the film. The documentary focuses on six of Cuba's prominent artists and explores the role of art as a form of activism or dissidence. The Forum presentation describes contemporary Cuba and reveals excerpts of the artists' interviews.
