»Diagonal. Essays on contemporary Cuban Art« deals with certain Cuban avant-garde artistic practices, especially in the eighties and nineties. The volume is concerned with the dilemma of art versus institution; the transcendental aim related to collective emancipation and the social artistic communication conflict linked to therapeutic and utopian gestures.

 

The book includes examples of the practices of GalerÌa DUPP, Henry Eric Hernández and Carlos Garaicoa, who are some of the relevant characters within the so-called »New Cuban Art«.
