Tania Bruguera: Untitled (Havana, 2000) | MoMA LIVE



Artist and activist Tania Bruguera investigates the impact of state power in her installation, “Untitled (Havana, 2000).” Initially conceived for the 7th Havana Biennial in 2000, the work was first presented in the Cabaña Fortress, a military bunker used as a jail for prisoners of conscience during the Cuban Revolution. This exhibition of “Untitled (Havana, 2000)” marks the first time this powerful piece has been presented since its recent acquisition by MoMA, and looks back to a pivotal point in Bruguera’s career, as she moved from working primarily with her own body to working with the collective social body.

“Tania Bruguera: Untitled (Havana, 2000)” is on view at The Museum of Modern Art through March 11, 2018. For more on Tania Bruguera,: http://mo.ma/taniabruguera

Tania Bruguera: Untitled (Havana, 2000) is organized by Stuart Comer, Chief Curator, with Martha Joseph, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Media and Performance Art, and performances produced by Lizzie Gorfaine, Performance Producer, with Kate Scherer, Assistant Performance Coordinator.
