Fôrets géométriques – Luttes en territoire Mapuche

In the south of Chile, the forests of Araucanía have been gradually replaced by pine and eucalyptus monocultures in order to develop the pulp and paper industry.


Today, the Mapuche indigenous tribe that has inhabited the area since long before the founding of the country is fighting to safeguard biodiversity, while the exploitation and trade of resources is causing confrontation between organizations and private industries.


The book Fôrets géométriques. Luttes en territoire Mapuche, published by Actes Sud, shows through the photographic research of Ritual Inhabitual, the ecological and political consequences of monoculture forestry.


Printed using LED UV technology and bound in paperback, the publication is printed in silver ink with matt protective varnish on the cover. For the inside, as for the cover, Munken Kristall paper has been used in different weights, combining four-colour printing and printing in black and silver ink.
