What our students have to say
Que curioso! En su día fui introducida a Wifredo Lam como el "Picasso Cubano" yo con poco de conocimiento de historia del arte sobre el contexto nunca lo vi como nada problemático. Esta clase sin duda me ha cambiado la forma de pensar al respecto. Naiara
How curious! On day I was introduced to Wifredo Lam as the "Cuban Picasso" I, with little knowledge of art history about the context, never saw it as problematic. This class has definitely changed the way I think about it. Naiara
Esta clase me ha demostrado ideas/conceptos de las ciencias sociales y humanidades con las que yo soy familiar. Me impactó ver lo que representaba ser una artista mujer en ese contexto y como se pronunciaron fuertemente ante ello. Me encantó: el arte no tiene que ver con la moral. Teresita
This class has shown me ideas/concepts from the social sciences and humanities with which I am familiar. I was shocked to see what it meant to be a female artist in that context and how they spoke out strongly about it. I loved the phrase: art has nothing to do with morality. Teresita
