Susana Pilar Delahante Matienzo (b. 1984) lives and works in Havana, Cuba. Her work explores the obstacles and challenges that women face from both a personal and global perspective. Working mainly in video, photography, and drawing, Matienzo is unflinching in her approach to address the act and effects of violence against women, often producing powerful and disruptive visual images. From 1998 until 2008 Matienzo studied in the Elemental school of Visual Art, the Fine Arts Academy and the High Institute of Arts (ISA) in Havana, Cuba. She pursued post-graduate studies in New Media, from 2011 to 2013 at Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design in Germany. -  www.apexart.org/fellowship/matienzo.php

Cuba Holds Its First Natural Hair Competition to Promote Black Pride  6/18/2015 Black Girl Long Hair: "Havana performance artist, Susana Delahante held a black hair competition in Cuba this past weekend. Black and mixed-race women were invited to compete in three hair categories – natural, braided and dreadlocked. The two hour competition which had over 70 contestants was described as an effort to bolster pride within the Afro-Cuban community. Delahante states: “I wanted to do something that legitimized my hair, this undervalued type of hair.”"

Some of us will remember that when Angela Davis first visited Cuba in 1969, Cubans were completely fascinated with her afro, which no one could wear at that time as it was banned.

Susana Pilar Delahante: Ampliando su dominio  6/23/2015 Caimán Barbudo: "Durante mi estadía en Alemania estaba explorando nuevos medios en Internet. Usualmente trabajaba el 3D Max, un programa que utilizan mucho los arquitectos. Entonces encontré Second life. Al principio creí que era una especie de fórum en el cual podías crear y comunicarte con otros realizadores, luego me percaté de que era una plataforma que incluía un chat tridimensional donde creas un avatar, que es un “muñequito moldeable”: lo puedes poner gordo o flaco, añadirle pelo, es capaz de tomar forma de personas, animales, en fin, lo que se desee."
