In November 2015, Koen Vanmechelen, invited by Jorge Fernandez, director of the XII Bienal de la Habana, and Bruno Devos, Artui, went on a research trip to Cuba to investigate the possibility to create an ‘Arena de Evolucion’ during this internationally well recognised biennial. Making a presentation for the committee of the biennial and going on a location hunt was part of the trip.

A second goal of the trip was to organize the installation of a Cubalaya breeding centre in Cuba, to make the first and necessary steps to bring the original Cubalaya back to Cuba. Thanks to the shipment of different incubators, in June 2014 several breeding eggs will be shipped to Cuba as a second part of the process.

Giving a lecture for the students of the ISA in Havana completed the one week research trip.
