Homeland: News from Portugal is a newspaper. 

This newspaper is the Portuguese Pavilion, it aims to have an influence on the present Portuguese situation, to start a debate, to provoke some kind of response, to show possible paths, using examples from the past and speaking about the future.

An unconventional exhibition instrument that gathers original contents, specifically produced for the project by a multidisciplinary team which includes professionals from different areas, such as architecture, economics, sociology, geography, history, anthropology, photography, law and design. They all participate with their critical reflection on housing in various perspectives, having as raw material the architectural experimentation field per excellence, as well as decisive and primary element of urban and territorial construction social and cultural reflection of its inhabitants.

“We want to use the newspaper not only as a metaphor for modernity in architecture, materializing a kind of archaeological artefact that can represent itself as the history of modernity, but also as a tool of the ‘quotidian,’ ephemeral and political. This is an opportunity to speak about Home and Land, an attempt to engage with society, with the territory and with the political context.”  
–Pedro Campos Costa, curator
