Cuban artist pushes boundary between art and politics, and pays a price

HAVANA -It was probably inevitable, given the trajectory of her career, that Cuban artist Tania Bruguera’s creative vision would collide one day with her country’s less-expansive political reality.
From a young age, Bruguera, 46, won international acclaim as an irreverent, barrier-breaking performance artist. She smeared the floor with pig’s blood to make a point about sexual assault. She stripped naked and ate dirt in tribute to Cuba’s vanished indigenous tribes. During one performance in Colombia, she circulated trays of cocaine inviting audience members to try it. They did.
