"INVENTO LUEGO RESISTO" reflects on the Special Period, an era that began in Cuba in the 90s after the fall of the Soviet Union. Author Elzbieta Sklodowska reviews this period of recent Cuban history through culture, particularly examining literature, plastic arts, music, and film. She reveals that this period was double sided, as it was defined by both material deficiencies, but also a sense of inventiveness and improvisation that resulted from scarcity.
