We had discussions, once every semester, where all teachers discussed each student’s work. We were able to invite interesting artists I knew, from different places. We were passionate about 7 INTERVIEW WITH MÓNICA CASTILLO teaching. There were very traditional thinkers and also radical left-oriented artists, migrants from Cuba, very young artists, who had just finished school and me, who came from the established art world.
