BEYOND THE HYPHEN: Approaching a post geographic Cuba (April 9-April 10, 2014, Princeton University) brought together academics and artists during a two days Conference to talk about the newly-emerging modes of communication and interchange between Cuba and the rest of the world.  This event was unique and unprecedented at Princeton University or any other American institution. We’re honored to host as a special guest internationally-renowned artist Tania Bruguera who discussed her art vision with a panel of Princeton University professors. Other panels explored topics pertaining to contemporary Cuban art and literature. BTH also launched a poetry and short fiction reading along with a multimedia exhibition of younger artists.
