||After the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro installed an anti-western, one-party communist system. In Castro’s 'Speech to Intellectuals' in 1961 he spoke the famous words: “within the Revolution, everything goes; outside the Revolution, nothing”. In the cultural sector this meant that artists, intellectuals, and writers had the freedom to express themselves, as long as it was in line with Castro’s ideology. I will look at the effect of this statement in the art world, taking the performance Tatlin’s Whisper #6 and its re-staging #YoTambienExijo by the Cuban artist Tania Bruguera as case studies. This thesis concludes that Cuban culture is used for two extremes: as political propaganda by Castro and as tool for political critique by Bruguera.
