In our projects space Diango Hernández will show an installation of works, based on the farewell letter of Che Guevara to Fidel Castro.

The farewell letter of Che Guevara to Fidel Castro:
At this moment I remember many things: when I met you in Maria Antonia‘s house, when you proposed I come along, all the tensions involved in the preparations. One day they came by and asked who should be notified in case of death, and the real possibility of it struck us all. Later we knew it was true, that in a revolution one wins or dies (if it is a real one). Many comrades fell along the way to victory. Today everything has a less dramatic tone, because we are more mature, but the event repeats itself. I feel that I have fulfilled the part of my duty that tied me to the Cuban revolution in its territory, and I say farewell to you, to the comrades, to your people, who now are mine.
