On 18 April 2015 Tate Modern, along with various arts organisations across the world, staged a special presentation of Cuban artist Tania Bruguera’s performance piece Tatlin’s Whisper #6.

Bruguera was detained in Cuba for attempting to present this work in Havana’s Revolutionary Plaza.

The recreation at Tate Modern featured members of the public alongside artists, writers and curators speaking for a minute on any subject of their choice. The work was restaged in an act of solidarity and support for Bruguera and artists all over the world persecuted for freedom of expression.

This performance was also presented by other arts organisations around the globe including Creative Time, New York, The Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, The Van Abbe Museum, Eindhoven and Witte de With, Rotterdam.
