Cuba meets USA meets Switzerland. PRINTED IN CUBA is an initiative by Margarit Lehmann (Switzerland) in cooperation with Aliosky Gracía (Cuba) and Lian Ng (USA). It is an experiment of artistic and sociopolitical dimensions: not Cuban art in America or Swiss art in Cuba, but joint work in a tri-national cooperation. The project brought together 19 printmakers from Cuba, USA and Switzerland to collaborate on a collection of unique prints using lithography, collagraphy, etching, pressure and relief printing techniques. The artists created layers on the same print in response to each other to result in a finished piece that does not represent a singular artist but of a collective whole. The artists participated in the project are: Alejandro Sainz (Cuba), Aliosky García (Cuba), Andreas Frick (Switzerland), Barry Ebner (USA),
