“The artist Luis Manuel Otero Alcántara was released [by Cuban authorities] on Friday night, in a surprising turn of events that had captured broad national and international solidarity, as confirmed by [art] curator Claudia Genlui on her Facebook account. ‘Luis Manuel Otero Alcántara has been released!! We are connected’, published Genlui. Journalist Carlos Manuel Álvarez released a photo of the artist smiling and surrounded by a group of friends. ‘I am still in shock,’ said Otero Alcántara a few hours after being released to journalist Mónica Baró of the magazine El Estornudo. In the interview, recorded early this Saturday morning, the artist acknowledges that being locked in a prison has been a ‘shocking’ experience. ‘You don’t know how much people love you or how much they admire you until these extreme situations come,’ said the artist, referring to the solidarity he found after leaving prison.” (14ymedio, March 14, 2020)( tomado de Cubastudygroup).
