LA: Annenberg Space - Greg Kahn: Havana Youth

  • Annenberg Space for Photography 10050 Constellation Boulevard Los Angeles, CA, 90067 United States (map)

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.
