About The Artwork

This work is based on The massacre of the Bananeras, that was a massacre of workers of the United Fruit Company that occurred between December 5 and 6, 1928 in the municipality of Ciénaga, Magdalena near Santa Marta (Colombia). An unknown number of workers died after the government of Miguel Abadía Méndez decided to end a one-month strike organized by the workers' union that sought to guarantee better working conditions. The government of the United States of America had threatened to invade Colombia through its Marine Corps, if the Colombian government did not act to protect the interests of the United Fruit Company. The colombian society is the girl on the stage, dead by its own richness.!
