"[At Goldsmiths] I became the person responsible for the group of students who were the wayward and difficult ones. People used to laugh, they’d say: “Great we got rid of them onto Craig-Martin!” There were students doing performance, film or video, writing, installation. At the time all of this stuff was very speculative, it was a small part of the art world at that time. This was very, very close to the cutting edge of what was going on in the world outside. I can truthfully say that during the 70s there was no place in London to see more interesting art than at Goldsmiths. You couldn’t have gone to a Gallery and seen more interesting stuff." - Michael Craig-Martin
