René Francisco presented the 1st version of his work in the Foto/Graphik Galerie Käthe Kollwitz, an art project by Pat Binder in Berlin (August - December 2003) - see zoom page.

Serving as point of departure is a photo from a series which records the visit -staged by René Francisco- of a black Joseph Beuys to the "El Romerillo" quarter in Havana. For René Francisco, this is an ironic, critical debate with the German, admired by many younger Cuban artists, and about his statements on the connection between art and life.
