PABELLÓN CUBA 4D - 4Dimensions, 4Decades
A Reader on the Change in the Utopian in Architecture, Art, and Film in Cuba
Eds. Lisa Schmidt-Colinet, Alexander Schmoeger, 
Eugenio Valdés Figueroa, Florian Zeyfang

Pabellón Cuba, a unique edifice in Havana's 
modernist district Vedado and a product of the 
advent of the revolutionary period after 1959, 
was the exhibition site for the project 4D - 
4Dimensions, 4Decades, organized by RAIN for the 
8th Havana Biennial. In this publication, the 
landmark building takes on the role of a stage 
for the ideas on, discussions about, and 
projections towards the decades following the 
Revolution in Cuba. The subject of the 
contributions by numerous Cuban and international 
authors and artists is a possible 'departure to a 
new society:' the dynamism and contradictions in 
the years after the revolution, and the role that 
art, architecture and film played in it - seen in 
the light of today's critical knowledge... Find
