LA: Annenberg Space - Greg Kahn: Havana Youth

Cubans born after 1989 only know a life after the dissolution of the U.S.S.R. and the scarcity of resources available during the U.S.-led economic embargo. These kids, born during the “Special Period,” are now in their teens and 20s. After Raul Castro inherited the presidency, the youth of Havana began to experience more of the world’s culture. The photographer Greg Kahn will discuss how youth identity in Cuba is rapidly evolving and redefining what it means to be Cuban.

LA: Annenberg Space - Michael Christopher Brown : Life After Fidel

According to photographer Michael Christopher Brown, Americans have a “distant idea” of Cuba, often idealizing the island as a paradise of architecture, cigars, rum, and vintage automobiles. Brown will discuss his ongoing “Paradiso” project, which reveals the more complex reality of how Cubans are “surviving the paradise.” Brown followed two young DJs in Havana, and their youthful electronica scene, capturing a generation that came of age during the “Special Period” who are trying to thrive in a society largely cut off from the rest of the world.
