Abstract:

Eduardo Hernández Santos's "El muro" is a composite chronicle of late-night life at Havana's utmost limit of the city: the seafront wall, popularly know as the Malecón. El muro is a significant visual source of constantly thwarted gay nightlife in Havana, but above all it is a social document about the members of a historical underclass emerging from hiding to contest efforts to control their lifestyles, to proclaim their normality and their non-conformity of the status quo. El muro is ten black and white triptych photographs, with an introduction by the artist. An essay by the young and insightful Cuban ethnographer and researcher Abel Sierra accompanies the complex mosaic of human experience and emotions.
