Italo Morales

The youth of Sarajevo - A whole cohort of human beings, born in the time of “before”, were forced into the night of war and then abruptly woken up to the harshness of adult life.

Overnight Generation is a tribute to the generation in Sarajevo who where compelled to catch up vir¬tually from one day to the next (ergo overnight) with the adolescence they had missed out on. The work is not meant to be a moral admonition or a political indictment; it does not show the misery of the war. Instead, my photo¬graphs simply explore the often laborious life of the post-war years. But at the same time they provide a fascinating view of one of the most exciting and at the same time most complex European capitals.

Life displaced - If war is a disease, recovery is to be pursued. But in the face of the much-advertised and perpetually re-enacted 'recovery' of Sarajevo, its youth seem unable, or perhaps just unwilling, to reckon with it.

True Love - In Sarajevo nothing seems to ever be good enough, but nobody wants to leave. Flaws and absurdities are picked out in passionate detail, but no other place stands to compare with it. It must be true love, there seems to be no other explanation.

Borrowed memories - Apart from the local socio-political system, there is another entity that is almost equally hungry for the youth of Sarajevo to self-identify themselves – the inquiring Western visitor, in all varieties.

War as disease - The condition of the postwar youth bears the marks of a traumatic inception. Insecurity, idleness and disenchantment are in fact easily ascribed to some sort of premature birth, a Caesarean section which has left wounds and scars

The subject-in-war - War is doubtless constitutive of the subjectivity of Sarajevo's youth. But it is so, as it were, despite themselves. War defines what they are, but at the same time it resists being defined by them.
