Generación, 2019

2k video

The video Generación tells a melancholic story that works as a metaphor for the cultural and aesthetic deaths that have happened in a cyclic manner in Cuba and in other countries of the world. The characters in the film are artists, photographers, writers, architects, curators of the Cuban current intellectual scene who interpret the generation of the late 70s, thus establishing a temporal ellipsis between the past and the present of the island. The song 'Pólvora Mojada', which accompanies the video, was very popular in the seventies by one of the most important voices of Cuban music, Beatriz Marquez.

Marco A. Castillo

Marco A. Castillo is co-founder of the collective Los Carpinteros. The group was created in 1992 in Havana, Cuba, to develop practices that combine architectural forms, design and art, independent of individual authorship. While the collective gained wide international recognition as a group, Castillo has also been recognized for his individual work. In his career as an individual artist, he has experimented with the intersections between fine art, applied art, and decorative art to problematize aesthetic expectations and preconceptions associated with the Latin American history of modernism, socialist design, and Cuban traditions. In doing so, he also focuses on Cuba's current political developments as well as the now often forgotten achievements of modern Cuban architects and designers. He has been awarded different prizes, latest being the Medalla por la Cultura Nacional (Cuba, 2002).
