The Havana Biennial was established in 1984, long before the worldwide boom of Biennials in the Mid-nineties. Its first edition was focused on artists from Latin America and the Caribbean who live or have their cultural roots there. Since the 2nd Havana Biennial in 1986, the focus was extended to include Africa and Asia, thus becoming the most important meeting place for artists from "non-Western" countries. For this reason, Universes in Universe dedicated particular attention to this event several times.

For the 10th Havana Biennial in the year 2009, the organizers have announced a more open concept, which means that the restriction to invite artists from the so-called "Third World" will be officially lifted.
