Detrás del muro (Behind the Wall) is Juan Delgado Calzadilla´s curatorial project for the most recent Havana Biennial, in which he showed, along the 4 miles of the Malecón in Havana, works by 25 Cuban artists, living in the island and abroad. The show referred to vital subjects of Cuban identity and included especially conceived site-specific works.

Two videos on the show were taped, a 7 minute long short one, and a 40 minute long one, recording very suggestive images of the Malecón as well as shots of the setting-up and the testimonies of Juan Delgado Calzadilla (curator) and Elvia Rosa Castro (advisor), on the importance of the exhibition and how it was conceived, complemented by some artists talking about their proposals: Adonis Flores, Alexandre Arrechea, Duvier del Dago, Florencio Gelabert, Roberto Fabelo and Mariangela Orozco, among others.
