HAVANA TIMES – Today, February 12th, I turn 46 years old and there’s no better way to give myself a gift than share with my dear readers the fifth video in my Vulgarmente Clasica (Vulgarly Classic) series. This is the second time that I voice my disent against Decree-Law 349, which distances artists, both independent and non-independent, from artistic creation with its list of violations.
Patriotic symbols won’t be able to be used in artistic projects; a fictional character can’t have negative or violent traits, and you can’t use sexist language, or discriminate against someone’s sexual orientation or color of their skin.
What can be considered or classified as “vulgar” or “obscene” in art today? When artistic performances make use of the body, both female and male, as an instrument to create art.
Here is my humble contribution, while we continue to wait for silence surrounding Decree-Law 349 to finally be broken so that we will all know what is going to happen in the future of artists who will be affected by this law in some way or another.
