For the third consecutive year, Instituto Cervantes Dublin takes part in PhotoIreland Festival. The 2012 edition’s title is “Migrations: Diaspora & Cultural identity”.
In this context we introduce “El otro lado del alma” (The other side of the soul). This exhibition showcases various contemporary Cuban photographers who research religious themes and, specifically, syncretistic religions with roots in African cults that were imported in the island centuries ago by slaves. These photographers portray a personal interpretation of the collective spiritual memory of the nation from very different perspectives.
Although both Cuban photography and video art revolve around international movements, many Cuban artists still portray an ingrained Cuban tradition. We can therefore perceive a profound Cuban theme influence in many works produced at present.
Guided tour every Tuesday at 5:30pm, in English and Spanish.
