SMACH is an international call for artists. The fourth edition of SMACH puts the the word ‘Heimat’ as it’s 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.
