International Wind Art in Northern Hesse Art interacts with wind and weather in Northern Hesse: "Moving wind" stages wind art in this versatile landscape. Whether a gentle breeze or a thundering storm, resting treetops or clouds chasing along - wind art is fleeting, can be experienced again and again and remains unfinished in a fascinating way. The wind art festival "bewegter wind" shows North Hesse's beauty from a new perspective: At changing locations - in front of forests, high altitudes, lakes or quarries - objects are created that make the wind visible and merge it with art. Wind art objects, installations, wind videos and performances amaze visitors of all ages, guests and locals, art lovers and nature lovers. No visiting day is the same, because in the "Outdoor Museum" is always blowing a new wind. The international wind art festival takes place as a competition every two years at changing locations in the region. "bewegter wind" is a landscape exhibition with supporting programme, art competition, artists' meeting, cultural exchange, exhibition tour and childrens programme. Since 2004, 9 international art competitions have been announced and carried out. To date, 629 works of art by 514 artists from 35 countries have been exhibited at 31 locations.

3rd prize, split: "Auditorium" by Katri Pekri and Alide Zvorovski (Estonia)

About 300 miniature chairs are systematically arranged in a rectangular shape. Oriented in one direction, like in a cinema. If you bend down you notice how much movement the wind causes within the low flora. The installation accentuates the wind in a completely different way, through its immediate small surroundings. And more questions are raised: Who is watching? Who is this beautiful place made for? For us humans? The view of the surrounding landscape is wonderful.
