Antonio José Ponte: Arte, política y nuevas tecnologías en Cuba

If I were in Miami this week, here's a lecture I wouldn't want to miss.

I saw Ponte speak late last year at Columbia University and he has written a number of provocative pieces on new technology in Cuba. Go here for one of them.

The Cuban Research Institute cordially invites you to:
