Levi Orta, Cuba
I'm the fool of the Right-Wing Political Art
Can we talk about Right-Wing Political Art? That kind of art really exists? As a political artist what should be my position? For these lecture, Levi Orta will sail on these questions through three of his artworks.   Levi Orta’s works explores the creative component of politics, focusing on the inaccuracies of the art- political boundary. He reproduces mechanisms, strategies and behavior of political-artistic situations that have been filed, thus highlighting its most subversive undertone; always from a cynical stance that threatens the hegemonic.  
CV: Levi Orta (born in  1984, Cuba), graduated from the Instituto Superior de Arte of Havana (2010), from Cathedra Arte de Conducta (2009) and the Home Work Program of Ashkal Alwan of Beirut (2016). In recent years, Orta has participated in exhibitions in several countries like Germany, Austria, EEUU, Spain, France, Israel, Brazil, Mexico, Canada, Croatia, United Kingdom, China, Japan, Lebanon and Cuba.
