Performance: Hamlet Lavastida (with Coco Fusco, Janet Batet and Marco Castillo), El billetaje quemando la calle/Bills Burning the Street

This performance brings to life a proposal that imprisoned Cuban artist Hamlet Lavastida made  to stamp Cuban currency with the logos of 27N and the San Isidro Movement, as well as declarations in favor of free expression and civil liberties for all Cubans. The idea is to create an artwork-as-messaging-system that travels the routes of everyday communicative and commercial exchange, landing in the hands of unexpecting participants. The project was initiated by Marco Castillo, Leandro Feal and Kiko Faxas at ARCO Madrid.
