 #YoTambienExijo: A Restaging of Tatlin’s Whisper #6 at State of Concept

State of Concept organises an evening of performances entitled #YoTambienExijo: A Restaging of Tatlin’s Whisper #6 coordinated by Poka Yio. We invite you to join us and speak in public for one minute on a subject of your choice.

 

This event is a special recreation of Cuban artist Tania Bruguera’s performance Tatlin’s Whisper #6 and is an act of solidarity towards Bruguera, who was arrested by the police forces in December 2014, in order to prevent her performance being restaged in Havana’s Revolutionary Plaza. Bruguera is still detained in Cuba.

 

Bruguera first performed this work in 2009 at the Havana Biennial to provide a temporary platform for free speech, a highly emotive issue in Cuba. Audience members were invited to speak uncensored in public for one minute on a subject of their choice.

 

The performance has been presented by other arts organisations across the world including Tate Modern, London; Creative Time, New York; The Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; The Van Abbe Museum, Eindhoven; Witte de With, Rotterdam.

 

State of Concept invites you to come and take the stage in this performance, in support of Bruguera and for all other artists around the world who face criminal charges and violence for exercising their basic human right to free expression.
