10th Havana Biennial
March - April 2009


10th Havana Biennial, 2009



Integration and Resistance in the Global Age

The 25th anniversary of the Biennial's foundation and the realization of its 10th edition are seen by the organizers as an opportunity to look back on its history, and to reflect on the principles that have been the main concept of this art event.

Even though until now the Biennial was dedicated to the visual arts from Latin America, Africa and Asia, and to artists from these regions in the diaspora, there where artists invited in several occasions who did not comply with these criteria. With the 10th Havana Biennial the restricted focus on the so-called "Third World" or "South" will be officially expanded. In the first statements on the theme of the Havana Biennial 2009, an explicit openness is being mentioned.
