“Fidel and the Foreign Policy of the Revolution,” was a exhibition commemorating the one year anniversary of the passing of Fidel Castro. The exhibit, an event sponsored by the Ministry of Foreign Relations, was held at the International Press Office in Havana and open to the public.

It was a collaborative effort by Habana Estampa, Katiuska Blanco, the website “Fidel Soldado de las Ideas,” Estudios Revolution, Casa Editora Verde Olivo, Revista Bohemia, Fototeca de Prensa Latina, Oficiana de Asuntos Históricos del Consejo de Estado, Alex Castro, and the Cooperative Arconst.

The infographic exhibit consisted of iconic black and white photographs of Fidel, the man and the leader.  Press clippings blended and framed the images to stir and conjure up the collective memories of 20th Century world history.  What this exhibit presented was an opportunity for the viewer to embrace a greater understanding of Cuban culture, history, and its people.

With the exhibit, the Ministry of Foreign Relations paid tribute to Fidel, the driver of a diplomacy committed to his people and to the progressive causes of the world.  The significance of this man and his influence on not only Cuba but the entire world cannot, for a moment, be denied.

The press clippings and images combine to show Fidel in “multiple and transcendental moments” on the international scene and of the foreign policy of the revolution:  its message is optimistic, reflective, firm, and, as both guerrilla-fighter and statesman, Fidel remained both captivating and undefeated.

Sovereignty.  Unity.  Internationalism.  Solidarity. These are the ideas that structured Fidel’s Revolution and continue to provide a framework of the foreign policy of that revolution.

If you missed “Fidel and the Foreign Policy of the Revolution,” you can still enjoy 15 images from the exhibit here.
