forms of radical art in san miguel

... and all in the same cloisters: here's some curtains behind which is a room with different memorials to those who have been killed or "disappeared" in recent violence;

a little further up the cloister is a long room with some extraordinary geometric murals by Siqueiros from the 1950s, with optical effects depending on where you stand;

and then there are also murals from the early 1940s showing the city's trades,

with groups of today's schoolchildren being told all about them.
