#YoTambienExijo: A Re-Staging of Tania Bruguera’s Tatlin’s Whisper #6
On April 13, 2015, in conjunction with Creative Time and other arts organizations around the globe, the Hammer Museum re-staged Cuban artist Tania Bruguera's performance Tatlin's Whisper #6. Bruguera has been detained in Cuba for attempting to present "Tatlin's Whisper #6" in Havana in December 2014. Find documentation of the re-staging of this performance on Twitter at #YoTambienExijo.

An action for artists Tania Bruguera, Angel Santiesteban, and Danilo Maldonado “El Sexto”

By re-staging Tania Bruguera’s participatory art work, Tatlin’s Whisper 6, the Hammer Museum stands in solidarity with her, Angel Santiesteban, and Danilo Maldonado “El Sexto”, and all other artists around the world who face criminal charges and violence for exercising their basic human right to free expression. As article 19 of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights states, Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.

On Monday, April 13, from 12:30-2PM, all are invited to step up and speak freely for one minute about freedom of speech as part of the performance. This event will be streamed live online.
