I'm from Mexico and currently studying an MA in Contemporary Art Theory. This Masters degree is focused on the present debates of art around the world. I have a BA in Humanities and have worked as a curatorial and archive assistant in photography in Mexico, India and France. I chose this course as a pathway for understanding art in my country in terms of the current research and interests, and in order to pursue a career as a curator.
I have found that Goldsmiths is an open place for your own ideas, you are free to pursue your own interests but still gives you the opportunity to get to know topics you never heard or studied before. Sometimes you feel overwhelmed with these new ideas but they enrich your knowledge. In my case this has encouraged me to expand my ideas and to think outside of my comfort zone.
I was granted a Santander Scholarship for Latin American students, and thanks to it I was able to come to study to London and not to worry about economical matters.
I hope to return to Mexico and open an independent art consulting firm for new talent.
