HAVANA.- The Havana Biennial, a space for confrontation and reflection of particular relevance in the international scene of the fine arts, celebrates twenty-five years of existence with its tenth edition, which brings together more than 200 artists from some forty countries through April 30, 2009.

"Integration and Resistance in the Global Era" is the central topic of reflection. Projects and works from Latin America and the Caribbean, Africa, Asia and the Middle East, and to a lesser extent from North America, Europe and Australia handle the problems of integrating to a highly complex global world due to the peculiarities of so many societies and cultures and the way in which there is an attempt to resist the hegemonic trends that strive to homogeneize from other territories the repertoire of ideas and forms.

Without pretending to offer solutions or answers to a reality that day after day reveals the complexity of its structure from different angles and outlooks, the Tenth Havana Biennial seeks to reflect on such an interesting and valid modern phenomenon that is one of the main pillars at the base of the debate on the identity of individuals, groups, communities, countries and regions.

Once more, the colonial buildings of the Historical Center and other cultural spaces are granted new meaning and significance for the visitors of a city that has become a meeting point of transdisciplinary and experimental proposals in the visual arts and other forms of culture.

The tenth edition is a favorable ocassion to stimulate the reflection on the history of the Havana Biennials and the premises on which, in a genuine atmosphere of approach, it first convoked the creators of Latin America and the Caribbean, Asia, Africa and the Middle East already twenty-five years ago.
