Munuera, with scientific advising from Ingrid Brioso Rieumont, Latin America specialist in Princeton’s Department of Spanish and Portuguese whose research centers on Cuba and the Caribbean. We carried out field work, interviews, project reconstruction, and newspaper and archival work, which led to the production of two simultaneous publications designed by Fru*Fru: one with texts, credits, and maps of the exhibition and the projects it examines, and another that functions as a reader, edited and translated by Ingrid Brioso Rieumont, which contained selected texts on Cuban architecture and urbanism in Havana, taken from various sources.
