Carlos Garaicoa

Born, 1967 in Havana, Cuba

From the archived Documenta 11 website : www.documenta12.de//archiv/d11/data/english/index.html

“Engaging since the early 1990s in the urban reality of old Havana in times of its obsolescence, Carlos Garaicoa’s photographic and architectural interventions physically change an urban fabric as well as preserve the remembrance of that which was left to decay under Cuba’s socialist revolution. Still carrying the odor of a colonial past of eclectic bourgeois lifestyle, the sites of Havana have become a metonomy for tracing political crisis and social change.”
