The term “tropical depression” is used in meteorology to describe weather conditions in tropical regions that entail storms and lightning and a constantly cloudy sky. Of course the term also has a psychological significance. IB 6621 makes reference to a flight from Madrid to Havana, thus creating a connection between Cuba, the Old World and the exhibition. What is more, the theme of the 11th Havana Biennial in 2012 was the praxis of artistic production and the idea of social reality. So expectations, prejudices and the survey of the visible are also aspects dealt with by the three artists in this exhibition.
