Works

The work of Marcos Benítez developed in Puerto Casado and then in Asunción on the base of elements he collected on the ground. The image of the quebracho tree and the ax were the detonators of his work. At the same time, the image of the abandoned dock and the photograph of Boggiani (the first known image of ​​Puerto Casado), the register made on canvas of the Monument to the Quebracho Tree, and the printed bags are figures that interlace the struggle and the exploitation.

The printed images correspond to the photographers Guido Boggiani and Luke Holland. The last image and the fragment of text belong to the book “La Lucha por la Tierra en Defensa de la Vida: The Maskoy People in front of Carlos Casado S.A.” The image of the abandoned wooden dock and the photograph of the Italian explorer, painter and photographer Guido Boggiani (the first known image of Puerto Casado), the register made on canvas of the Monument to the Chaco Peace Treaty located on the Paraguay River side, and the printed tannin bags that Benitez rescued from the old factory, are all figures that interlace struggle and exploitation.
