This emblematic image by Eduardo Kac has been selected by England & Co to mark the artist’s participation in the 12th Havana Biennial, which opens this week and where he will be representing the country of his birth, Brazil.
Kac now lives in the USA but says that he “prefers not to be bound by any particular nationality or geography: I work with telecommunications, trying to break up these boundaries.” He continues to explore issues of information censorship and freedom of speech, investigating the philosophical and political dimensions of communication processes.
