Author of one of the most fascinating artistic researches with a conceptual imprint dating back to the end of the 1960s, Lamelas' practice ranges from installation to sculpture, drawing, photography, film, video, sound and textual works that address the defining contexts and conditions of our perceptions and cognitions. His is an art, more often than not, made of almost nothing. The exhibition, curated by Andrea Viliani with Eva Brioschi, develops in space across all the floors of the Fondazione and extends in time over several months. Throughout, the show takes on different configurations and activates comparisons with a selection of works from the Fondazione’s collection. Some of the artist's key historical works will be presented together with new productions and a programme of live events. Opening: Saturday, May 6, 2023 at 11.00 AM.

    Ticket Museum Minnehus - Walther von der Vogelweide
    Lajen/Laion
    Walther von der Vogelweide, the most important of the German-speaking minnesingers, has left a deep mark not only on literature, but also on Lajen. Thus would Walther von der Vogelweide have probably received us, bidding us “willekomen” to his home of Lajen, which he left in the late 12th century in order to conquer the entire German-speaking world with his songs and poems. Walther was the star minnesinger, the one who knew how to entertain the ladies and gentlemen at court – up to and including numerous crowned heads. As a consummate professional, he knew exactly what his audience wanted to hear, whether it was poems about noble ladies and (not so noble) girls, or works with a more solid content: crown, church, crusades.

    Exhibition HUGO VALLAZZA overview
    Sëlva/Selva, Dolomites Region Val Gardena
    The Val Gardena artist Hugo Vallazza (1955-1997) developed an informal abstract study between 1970 and 1990, inspired by the natural elements of his hometown at the foot of the Dolomites. "I draw to remember nature," Vallazza writes in his diaries, "I draw only the spirituality of nature experiences." With the intention of staying out of the limelight, Vallazza worked during the years of economic growth and consumer society, a historical and cultural context that soon led him to detach from a vision of art as a commodity and reaffirm the value of art itself as a form of existence and intellectual resistance. His monochromatic images represent a strong refusal to participate in the rules of the game and claim the right to be subdued, raw, and unfinished. Twenty-seven years after his premature death, Hugo Vallazza's work still bears witness to a disillusioned perspective that never gives in to an idyllic promise of society reuniting with nature but rather presents new perspectives that attempt to develop a better understanding of who we are and how we inhabit our space. 17.02 - 15.03.2024 Daily from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM. Closed on Mondays. The exhibition was curated by Greta Langgartner.

    Exhibition: New Landmarks | Reinhart Mlineritsch
    Innichen/San Candido, Dolomites Region 3 Zinnen
    Opening 02.12.2023, 7 pm With pictures of the utmost precision and sharpest focus, which place ordinary, meaningless everyday objects into the forefront, the photographer Reinhart Mlineritsch opens up an undreamed-of poetic world to the viewer. Reinhart Mlineritsch is a magician of photography, who reminds us that we don’t really know the world around us. With the curious view of a discoverer and the skill of a photographer at the height of his art, he explores our surroundings as if they were unknown territory and everyday life were a terra incognita. The objects that Reinhart Mlineritsch photographs in such a precise and technically perfect manner are not sensational or spectacular in and of themselves. They only become sensational and spectacular through the manner in which this photographer captures them and makes them newly visible for us. With his both precise and poetic pictures, Reinhart Mlineritsch reminds us that things remain in a state of flux and that we could also see the world in a completely different way (Karl-Markus Gauß). Biography: Born in Vienna in 1950, grew up in Laab im Walde (Lower Austria), since 1979 he lives in Salzburg (Austria). He studied commercial studies in Vienna, graduated in 1974 and has since been working in private industry.Since childhood he has been self-taught with photography and darkroom work. His training was based on his participation in a number of courses on artistic photography at the Salzburg College. He has been working with Galerie Fotohof Salzburg since 1996. Since then, numerous exhibitions at home and abroad, various publications and public purchases. Books published by Otto Müller Verlag: "Wie ein Fremder" (1999), "Velvet Curtain" (2003) and "Cover of Darkness" (2007).

    Special Solo exhibition "Adolf Vallazza. A century of art"
    Bolzano/Bozen, Bolzano/Bozen and environs
    This exhibition is dedicated to Adolf Vallazza (Ortisei, 1924). On display is a selection of the most important works from this artist's long creative career. The aim of the exhibition is to highlight the versatility and originality of Adolf Vallazza and to trace the decisive stages that have made him one of the most respected representatives of contemporary art in Italy. On view are works created between 1970 and 2014. This long period of time allows the viewer to observe the development of the artist from Val Gardena and his works over the decades. Adolf Vallazza has managed to distinguish himself from all other contemporary South Tyrolean artists. He managed to raise the art of woodcarving to a high, essential and existential, almost philosophical level and to locate his art in a new space between tradition and innovation. Curated by Sara Alberti.

    TEMPORARY EXHIBITION / ZEICHEN AM BERG
    Bruneck/Brunico, Dolomites Region Kronplatz/Plan de Corones
    When thinking of signs on the mountains, most of us probably immediately picture summit crosses, rock cairns (known in South Tyrolean dialect as “Stoanmandln”), or the characteristic red and white stripes of the trail markers. They serve to express our connection with the heavens (crosses), are used for navigational purposes (cairns, markers), mark moments of discovery (flags, ice ax with pennant, hooks and carabiners), facilitate communication (fire), or convey a sense of community/tradition (Sacred Heart bonfire in Tyrol, Austria). Some signs are reminders for us to stay humble (wayside shrines) or to never forget (trenches). All across the globe, technical structures erected on the mountains such as power lines, cable cars, and avalanche defense structures are symbols of man forcing nature into submission. At a time defined by urbanization and a deepening disconnection of humanity from nature, mountainscapes have been turned into marketing instruments: Objects of art have been haphazardly scattered across the mountains to render them a more enticing destination and attract an ever-larger crowd. Some -negative- signs are an expression of “Man was here”: the accumulation of litter in the Himalayan base camps and the use of equipment such as ladders or drill hooks represent a significant departure from the origins of mountaineering and humanity’s pursuit of conquering the mountains. However, nature itself creates signs, too: more sustainable, less obtrusive, and more subtle than the signs created by us. Some mountains are symbols for whole countries: the Matterhorn makes you think of Switzerland, the Sugarloaf Mountain of Rio de Janeiro, Drei Zinnen of South Tyrol. Other mountains feature rims, walls, or rock formations that resemble human faces - some of them are now popular postcard motifs. Signs are also witnesses of a mountain’s history and origins, whether it is composed of Muschelkalk, a shell-bearing sedimentary rock, or volcanic rock. Across all continents, plants that are only found at high altitudes and thus act as biological altimeters, are signs, too: from the Alpine edelweiss to the Mount Cook buttercup in New Zealand. Last, but not least, mountain dwellers are experts in reading the signs of nature up on the mountains. Clouds, for example, are known to bring rain, storms, or Foehn winds. Sayings such as “If the Dachstein wears a hat, weather’s certainly not going to turn bad” are often-shared folk wisdoms involving mountains. Ever since photography came into existence back in 1839, photographers have been capturing all these signs. Back in the day, the reason for that was mainly because they were typical of a certain mountain or region or served as proof that someone had actually reached the summit. Modern mountain photographers including Peter Mathis or Robert Bösch capture both natural and artificially created signs as motifs representing loneliness, tranquility, or transcendency high up on the mountain. Some of them are almost invisible, brought to attention by a keen lens. Other “sign pictures” are defined by the dismay felt in the view of human abuse of nature, acting as proof that humanity is, in fact, nature’s greatest enemy. This photography exhibition—along with a small number of carefully selected objects—has been curated to represent the many facets, the vast diversity of signs on mountains all across the globe.

    TEMPORARY EXHIBITION / GLACIER‘S END – A COLOURFUL STUDY OF OUR CHANGING EXISTEN
    Bruneck/Brunico, Dolomites Region Kronplatz/Plan de Corones
    The exhibition showcases a targeted series of artworks from the past three years. These exclusive works are fragments of spatial and temporal dimensions that anachronistically defy thematic order. The brothers succeed in unleashing physical places into a rational realm of thought and transforming them into aesthetic settings through stylistic and colorful contrasts. What remains are surfaces, structures, and stylistic textures that take shape in the minds of viewers and ultimately transcend pure perception as a rational mechanism. No limits are imposed on their compositions. Observation transforms into a solitary experience, becoming a privilege of seclusion, comparable to an exclusive dialogue between observers and the artwork itself. Aesthetic forms and patterns of an entirely new and unknown world flow toward the critical awareness of climate change facing our planet. The fusion of abstract and colorful aesthetics as conflicting poles in this series alludes to the consequences of change in the mountain and glacier world. Simultaneously, space is created for personal expression and subjective opinion formation. Monochromatic backgrounds act as placeholders, enhancing the consciousness aspects of the works and the thematic coherence in the minds of the viewers. The artists‘ body of work focuses on capturing real glimpses of reality refined by a subjective artistic touch of color finesse as an individual trademark. Years of experience allow them to push the boundaries of technical possibilities and give a artistic nuance of self-awareness to the natural. The exhibited artworks are free from digital alienations on the PC. Each work lacks associative or documentary characteristics. Sophie Olivotto (Art Historian)

    CALDERA - Volcano
    Bolzano/Bozen, Bolzano/Bozen and environs
    Ready to take a trip into the past? 280 million years ago, a supervolcano dominated the center of the present-day Trentino-Alto Adige region. Mighty porphyry deposits still testify to its activity, while other rock layers interspersed tell of periods of calm, during which plants and animals settled. Some of them left deep traces. Using fossils, animal models and a simulation of the supervolcano, we will bring this lost world to life. Starting March 17 at the South Tyrol Museum of Nature.

    TEMPORARY EXHIBITION / LUKAS SCHÄFER THE QUIET
    Bruneck/Brunico, Dolomites Region Kronplatz/Plan de Corones
    Wind. The clouds, the sun, the moon. The stars. Water. Life. The quiet. Lukas Schäfer, born in 1992, hails from St.Georgen/San Giorgio in the Pustertal valley. He grew up between the Dolomites and the main ridge of the Alps. Even when he was a young child, his parents would show him the mountains. Ever since then, Lukas has been fascinated by nature, its landscapes, its details, and its animals. Lukas competed in professional freeskiing events before he got injured and discovered nature photography. He was immediately captivated. From that moment on, Lukas has rediscovered the mountains and their inhabitants time and time again with his camera. His passion would eventually turn into a profession. Some of his photographs and films have already won international awards. His debut book titled “Südtirol, Secrets of Nature” is a collection of photos and stories from South Tyrol and its border regions.

    TEMPORARY EXHIBITION / HAVE YOU EVER HEARD THE SOUND OF FALLING ROCKS?
    Bruneck/Brunico, Dolomites Region Kronplatz/Plan de Corones
    “Have you ever heard the sound of falling rocks?” is the title of a six-month journey that took place in 2022 across the Alps, in Italy, France, Switzerland, and Austria. A visual investigation of a phenomenon that is as important as it is little-known: the degradation of the permafrost. Over the course of the 20th century, temperatures in the Alps increased by 2°C, twice the average of the entire planet. Shorter winters, reduced snowfall, and melting glaciers are just some of the effects that global warming has had on the Alps. However, there are also a number of less visible effects; those that are more difficult to perceive but have a dramatic impact on the health of one of the most important, and most fragile, ecosystems on Earth. Included among these is the degradation of the permafrost, the surface section of the Earth’s crust that is closest to, and therefore most impacted by, all the phenomena occurring within the atmosphere. Its degradation, caused by the thawing of the ice it contains, leads to slope instability and changes in the hydrogeological balance with serious repercussions for the surrounding area. The ice contained within rock fissures acts like cement, holding parts of the mountain together, but as temperatures rise and the frozen ground thaws, the stability is reduced, leading to a potential increase in landslides and collapses - events that are becoming increasingly common throughout the Alps. The effects of these changes not only impact the environment, they also have an impact on the Alpine communities that have lived within this delicate ecosystem for centuries. Through an almost symbolic and universal look at a very technical and nearly invisible issue, “Have you ever heard the sound of falling rocks?” is a complex and extended (even territorially) narrative with the use of a powerful and not obvious photographic approach. “Have you ever heard the sound of falling rocks?” was made possible thanks to a grant from ISPA Award and was developed in collaboration with various organizations and public administrative bodies, including ARPA Piemonte (Regional Environmental ProtectionAgency of Piedmont), the University of Bozen-Bolzano, the Edmund Mach Foundation, University of Savoie Mont Blanc, Provincia di Trento (Trento Provincial Council), Museo di ScienzeNaturali di Verona (Verona Natural Sciences Museum), SLF Suisse (Institute for Snow andAvalanche Research), and the University of Milano-Bicocca. In cooperation with ISPA - Italian Sustainabilty Photo Award. Tomaso Clavarino is a photographer and director based in Italy. He was born in 1986 and holds an MA in Contemporary History. His works are regularly published by major magazines and media outlets worldwide. In parallel with his editorial work, he also pursues more personal projects that have been exhibited and screened in galleries and at major international festivals, as well as in museums and public spaces such as Triennale Milano, MUFOCO, or Museo Blanes in Montevideo, Uruguay.

    PAST FOOD - 15.000 YEARS OF NUTRITION
    Bolzano/Bozen, Bolzano/Bozen and environs
    Special exhibition at the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology Hunger is the best cook, 15,000 years ago as well as today. The special exhibition takes a look at the menu of our ancestors: the origin, preparation and preservation of food as well as the equipment used for this. A special focus is placed on local eating habits and regional archaeological finds. In addition to cultural-historical aspects, the multifaceted exhibition shows that our ancestors were never at a loss for an idea to satisfy their hunger and ensure that their food supplies lasted. Foods such as meat and fish, wild grains, wild fruits and honey were known from the very beginning. Other foods that we take for granted today, such as pulses, spices and cereals, were only brought to Europe by migratory movements in the course of human history. Food traditions that we are familiar with today, such as the processing of milk or the cultivation of wine, were introduced from the Mediterranean region at various times. Enjoy your meal! Let us invite you into the culinary world of food history.

    Fossilia - The museum
    Mölten/Meltina, Bolzano/Bozen and environs
    The fossil museum is designed as an outdoor museum and is accessible to interested visitors at any time and explains itself by means of texts and audio stations. A guided tour for a group of the museum with one of our local experts is highly recommended. Booking is possible by means of direct requests to the tourist office: info@moelten.net It is now a long time – 260 million years – since trees resembling today’s araucaria grew in Mölten/Meltina. The ginkgos produced feathery leaves, while tree-high horsetails stood between the village of Mölten/Meltina and the Möltner Kaser hut. It is astonishing that clearly identifiable forms of these South Tyrolean primeval forests remain: trees fell into the riverbank or were carried along by the current, embedded in sand and finally transformed into fossils. They can now be seen in the Fossil Museum, which was revitalised in 2023 and designed as an outdoor exhibition. It shows the best of the finds from the area around Mölten/Meltina. Particularly noteworthy are the fossil tree and plant remains, some 260 million years old, as well as the footprints of a small reptile. What is special about the fossils in Mölten/Meltina? There are only three places in South Tyrol where plant fossils from the Late Permian have been recovered: the Bletterbach Gorge; Seceda; and Mölten/Meltina. The finds from Mölten/Meltina are the only ones that reveal entire trees. Details of their growth, their branches, roots and size are all clearly visible, which makes it possible to reconstruct entire forests. The Fossil Museum has a fully equipped multifunctional room that can be hired for events for up to 30 people.

    Exhibition - Nibelungen Imagine Worlds - allora, dopo, oggi
    Meran/Merano, Meran/Merano and environs
    This year's exhibition season at Kunst Meran opens on 23 February with a collaborative project with the Akademie Meran and the Sonora Festival, Nibelungen: die rückkehr, in which the exhibition curated by Harald F. Theiss At the centre of this interdisciplinary project between art, literature and music is an ancient manuscript of the Song of the Nibelungen, which was found in South Tyrol (Latsch in Vinschgau) and is now in the possession of the Berlin State Library. The Song of the Nibelungs is the most important literary epic of the German Middle Ages. Created in the 1200s from various legends passed down , it combines two different storylines. With contemporary works of art and a collaborative project, it allows critical reflections, contextualisations and re-enactments of more than just traditional narratives. It questions collective memory and the relationship between the construction and deconstruction of Eurocentric myths in times of a post-colonial and post-migrant reorganisation of the world. In the context of social concepts, ideas about how something could have been, was later or is now are thematised. It is also about the emergence of new images of self and others. Above all, the ideal of courtly love represents a value system that still characterises social norms today and whose deeper examination can provide information about more recent cultural actions, including queer-feminist institutional critique and gender-specific attributions and perspectives. Imagine Worlds is more of an associative mind game than a reproduction of the epic with new images. With the art of hinting and referencing, the exhibition rather speculates on the ambivalence of myths, on the disappearance and emergence of new stories or myth formations. On a kind of walk-in stage, new artistic creations appear that retell variants on cultural change and concepts for shaping societies. By means of the works, which do not only come from language, the exhibition has the courage to create empty spaces. These can be considered further in a reorganising reality on the basis of text-based and media art, but also on the basis of the project, paintings, drawings and sculptural objects. In this way, Imagine Worlds enables a diverse perspective on myths and refers to the significance and transformation of (manuscript) writing and authorship as well as to the history and aesthetics of reception and gender constructions - then, later and today...
