Art Safiental 2020
The thematic focus of the third Art Safiental is ANALOG – DIGITAL. The temporary Land and Environmental Art artworks are distributed throughout the Safien Valley from Valendas and Versam at the entrance of the valley, to Tenna and Safien in the middle of the valley and Thalkirch and Turrahus at the end of the valley.
Berghotel Alpenblick in Tenna serves as an information center for the exhibition. It houses an art lounge with an indoor exhibition and a small library on the subject of Land and Environmental Art and the participating artists. At this location, the village shops and inns and further information points of Safiental Tourism, you can obtain an art hiking map, free of charge, that details the exact locations of the works of art and some background information about the exhibition, its themes and geographical coordinates.
Art Safiental is also getting an extension to the south this year in the form of a partnership with the Biennale Bregaglia, which is taking place at the same time.
