Ghetto Biennale: Chronicle of a Revolt Foretold

Investigation by Sandra Delacourt

Summary

Amidst an ongoing socio-political crisis in Haiti, the 6th Ghetto Biennale nevertheless opened on November 29, 2019, in Port-au-Prince. Until the very last moment it remained unclear whether this artistic event would even take place. In a national context of insurrection and extreme instability, its co-founders André Eugène and Leah Gordon chose to stay true to their program, dedicated to the revolutionary heritage of the Haitian Republic, as they watched their concerns be overshadowed by the reality of a vast people’s revolt and the brutality employed to contain it.
