The her & him American-Cuban art team Allora & Calzadilla (that’s Jennifer & Guillermo) live and work in Puerto Rico, the Caribbean island that Roosevelt made a protectorate of the U.S. in exchange for voting Democratic. Puerto Rico got welfare, Roosevelt got re-elected president. Puerto Rican independence was a political hot topic in NYC in the 80s, but then it disappeared.
Allora & Calzadilla are bringing this complicated, beautiful island and it’s politics back onto our radar screens. “Bieké” is the Vieques language, and not speaking it is a kind of death.
