The Museu Marítim de Barcelona is holding this exhibition produced by Memorial Democràtic.

This exhibition, curated by the photographer Sergi Bernal, and produced by Memorial Democràtic and the Museu Marítim de Barcelona, explains the repression suffered by teachers under the Second Republic and focuses on Antoni Benaiges, a teacher from Mont-roig del Camp who was killed in Burgos in 1936 and buried in a communal grave for more than 75 years.

In a rural republican school at the start of the 1930s, an innovative Catalan teacher launched an unheard of experiment in that area which consisted of a school printing press based on the Freinet method. The books published on the press by students from that tiny place in the middle of nowhere would travel to France, Mexico, Argentina and Cuba. Their teacher, on the other hand, would end up being shot and buried in a communal grave in the early days of the Civil War.

Eighty-two years after his assassination, the tale of a utopia destroyed by the dictatorship is revived at the graveside with a photographer as witness.

L´exposició, comissariada pel fotògraf Sergi Bernal i produïda pel Memorial Democràtic i el Museu Marítim de Barcelona, explica la repressió dels mestres de la República posant el focus en Antoni Benaiges, mestre de Mont-roig del Camp assassinat l´any 1936 a Burgos i enterrat en una fossa comuna durant més de 75 anys.

A una escola rural republicana de principis dels anys trenta, un mestre català innovador llança un experiment inèdit en aquelles terres de premsa escolar a partir del mètode Freinet. Els quaderns publicats per aquella impremta pels alumnes d´aquell perdut llogarret viatjaran fins a França, Mèxic, Argentina i Cuba. El mestre, en canvi, acabarà afusellat i enterrat en una fossa comuna en els primers dies de la Guerra Civil.

Vuitanta-dos anys després d´aquell assassinat, el relat d´una utopia truncada per la dictadura es recupera a peu de fossa tenint com a testimoni un fotògraf.
