Letter to the Censors (2003)
Garaicoa, Carlos

collection Tate. London

Letter to the Censors inhabits a theatrically lit, red-carpeted space in the centre of which is an architectural model in the style of a classical Havana cinema from the 1930s. Small light boxes displaying black and white photographs of old Cuban cinemas surround the model. The titles of censored films, from around the world, are projected inside the cinema. The installation makes references that are both specific to Havana and global in their exploration of how countries censor their own production.
