Journal 01 | Through the timeless windows of Havana
Limited Edition of 25 copies
“While I was searching for a more general vision of contemporary Cuban politics, culture and social development there was something that kept popping up. Not just in my Lonely Planet (yes, I also fell for the charming and colourful cover) but in every article, book or study on Cuba. A predominant voice on contemporary Cuba that echoes: ‘Go now, it will change soon!’
In light of all my questions and unending fascination for this country, I decided to go now and see for myself if the change was real and what a new Cuba would look like. I want to search for el cambio, the big change, and the claim it has on the people. This story is a fusion of diary-style impressions of Havana, background research on the history, contemporary politics and a reflection of my personal perspective on Cuba.”

About the author
Romy van der Burgh recently received her Bachelor degree in philosophy at the University of Amsterdam, specialising in Foucault with the additional subject in Eastern and African philosophy, gender studies and democracy theories. From an early age on she wrote stories, from short stories containing impressions of daily life to a fiction novel.
Her love for journalism came later, first when she interviewed writers like Arthur Japin and during her studies when she interned at De Groene Amsterdammer. She contributed with articles concerning environmental issues and corporate investigation. This kickstarted her love for investigative journalism which she would ultimately continue to pursue.
