SMACH.2019 Call for artists

Deadline: 17 March 2019
Open to: anyone
Benefits: prize of 2,000 EUR for ten selected artworks


SMACH is an international call for artists. The fourth edition of SMACH puts the word ‘Heimat’ as its main focus, this is not a simple word. It is well known that the word proves untranslatable in many languages, English and Italian included. The language barrier reduces its meaning to concepts such as “motherland” are banal, if not completely misleading.

‘Heimat’ is indicative of a form of identity much stronger than a single word can transmit. It does not just refer to a place, but rather a set of shared and spontaneous values which have to do with life from infancy. The mention of which triggers a positive sensation in us when one thinks of our origins, thinks of our identity, or, on the contrary, the sense of solitude and impotency we feel when the loss of such tie is hinted at.


This contest is open to anyone.


Ten selected artworks and projects will receive a prize of 2,000 EUR.
