A home to grow
In the early 20th century, many artists were forced to embark upon a new life far from their places of origin as a result of war, authoritarian regimes or the social and economic problems they had the misfortune to experience.
If we look at the trajectory of their careers and lives in exile, new narratives emerge about memory and life lessons. These narratives emphasise the other, less visible side of the history of these creators, prompting a series of questions. How were they received? What value do we give to these wise migrants? What influence did their work have on the host countries? What experiences did they live through that can help us to understand the present?
