Despite their singularities the countries of Central and Eastern Europe
and Cuba have reciprocal cultural and literary influences in common,
influences resulting from the interrelations of the Western canon and
also from the Communist phase in which solid political ties and
cultural and economic exchanges were established.


Café Europe-Havana proposes an encounter between the creators of
"both worlds" in an atmosphere that recreates the tertulias, or
literary gatherings, of the artistic avant-gardes. Writers and
intellectuals from Cuba and Central and Eastern Europe will describe
how they see things at the start of this new century. The role of
translations, the frontiers of the imagination, the organisation of the
book market, "hidden geographies," and the Communist and post-Communist
contexts in relation to the literary work are some of the themes to be
addressed in the two sessions of the encounter.
