The Moffitt Library exhibit, Showcasing the Socialist Propaganda: Soviet-Cuba Relations, explores the art of propaganda and its role in the relations between the Soviet Union and Cuba in the aftermath of the 1959 Cuban revolution. The exhibit focuses on print and film materials produced during the sixties and seventies following the Cuban Missile Crisis. The exhibit takes on special significance as US-Cuban relations have warmed under President Obama’s current administration.
The exhibit will open in mid-January on the third floor of Moffitt Library in the display case across from the elevators.
Liladhar Pendse (Slavic and East European Studies Librarian) and Carlos Delgado (Librarian for Latin American Collection) co-curated the exhibit. Library Exhibits Coordinator, Aisha Hamilton, designed it.
Please note: The Moffitt Library, including the exhibit, is only open to UC Berkeley students, faculty and staff.
