The experience of emigration was essential in the life of Tina Modotti. The essay analyses her formation in the world of the avant-garde in San Francisco and her first artistic experiences, up to the decisive choice of moving to Mexico. In her «homeland of choice» she expressed her creativity both in photography and in political militancy, in the struggle alongside the oppressed and in anti-fascist and anti-imperialist militancy. Expelled from Mexico, in the 1930s, as a director of the International Red Aid, she was active in the fight in Europe against fascism, firstly in France and Austria, and secondly by supporting the Spanish Republic during the civil war.
