Cuban artist Luis Manuel Otero Alcántara (Luis manuel otero alcantara) was detained for 24 hours on 3 June 2019 for planning an artistic performance, featuring the Cuban flag, on the balcony of his home in Cuba.

Alcántara named this performance “Que la patria os contemple orgullosa?”. He announced the performance on Facebook with a comment and image of the Cuban flag held at a 90-degree angle. After arresting Alcántara, Cuban authorities informed him that he would need proper authorisation from the Ministry of Culture to hold an artistic performance in a public space, which included within his own home.

This incident is yet another in the ongoing trend of detention of Cuban artists. On 1 August 2018, Cuban musician and lead singer of punk-rock band Porno para Ricardo, Gorki Águila was detained by Cuban police due to his radio project allowing artists to comment on the current Cuban establishment.

Criminalisation and restrictions are increasingly enforced under the Decree 349. Effective 7 December 2018, the Decree imposes the requirement of authorisation from Cuba’s Ministry of Culture to perform artistic and creative endeavors in public spaces.

Freemuse will be releasing an upcoming statement about Decree 349 and its implications on artistic expression in Cuba. Read more about Decree 349 here: bit.ly/2PpT3WN
