Menotrentuno 2016 terramadre / homeland

Menotrentuno 2016

Menotrentuno is an international photography festival, now in its fifth edition, promoted by the cultural association Su Palatu_Fotografia and aimed at young European professional photographers who are under 31 years of age.
Previous editions have seen the event revolve around the following themes The Tourism Revolution (2006), The Ecstasy of Youth (2008), Young Violence (2011) and Memory (2014).
This year's event sees terramadre / homeland as a territorial investigation, a concept that is very difficult to express in a single word, often closely tied to nationalistic events of the nineteenth-century sort that every language tends to make with precise and different attributions of meaning.
The basic question is: «how much terramadre / homeland does a young person need today?» To this question a selection of works tried to answer presented under the artistic direction of Salvatore Ligios and Sonia Borsato, who articulated the edition 2016 on the basis of fifteen exhibitions distributed on the territory of Sardinia in order to draw a sort of photographic map able to embrace the entire region.
