SMACH 2023 – Art, Culture and History in the Dolomites

SMACH Biennale is looking for project proposals for artistic, sculptural and installation interventions that are able to engage with the peculiarities of Val Badia, the natural sites in which they will be hosted.

SMACH 2023 puts it’s main focus to the the word “Sprouting”, with which the organizers want to stimulate you to imagine what can be born in this era. What seeds would you like to plant? What shoots would you like to see sprout? What would you like to grow (or create) and leave for future generations?

The 10 winning projects will be realised thanks to the prize offered and presented in various Alpine locations in Val Badia, in the unique setting of the UNESCO Dolomites, from July to September 2023. The 10 selected artists or group of artists will receive a prize of 2,000 Euro each.

Each participant may submit a maximum of 2 projects. However, in the event of a win, only one can be selected.

The call and the Biennial are conceived and organized by the SMACH Cultural Association with the support of the Autonomous Province of Bozen/ Bolzano, the Region of Trentino Alto Adige and other public and private partners.

SMACH Biennale is a disseminated art exhibition that, every two years since 2012, has made a series of works conceived and installed in relation to some of the most beautiful places in Val Badia and the UNESCO Dolomites freely accessible to the public. To date, now in the project’s tenth anniversary year, the organizers have presented 50 installations (many of which are now permanently exhibited in the SMACH Val dl’Ert) selected for their aesthetic and conceptual capacities to dialogue with the nature, history, identity, and culture of the territory; to be able to propose non-stereotypical visions of the Alpine landscape and to stimulate critical and symbolic thinking.
