"Change?!" - Climate change from the perspective of international artists*.
Announcement of the 10th International Art Competition "bewegter wind" 2020
Art meets nature: The wind art festival "bewegter wind", unique in Germany, celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. It will take place from August 16th to 30st, 2020 at outstanding scenic locations in the Reinhardswald Nature Park - in the heart of Germany near Kassel. Now curator Reta Reinl has announced the theme of the festival: "Change?! She explains: "Climate change contains threatening, but also forward-looking aspects. Is apocalypse in sight? Or can we expect a variety of possible solutions to shape the future? The climate is changing. Meteorologically, but also socially. We are looking for drafts and concepts that make this change tangible."
Windy welcome in Northern Hesse!
Whether a gentle breeze or a thundering storm, resting treetops or clouds chasing by - 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 days is like the other, because in the "Outdoor Museum" is always blowing a new wind.
Thanks to the long-standing sponsors and energetic supporters, the festival, which is unique in Germany, is free of charge for visitors.
