International Wind Art in Northern Hesse
9th wind art festival “moving wind” – "Clouds"
Aug. 19th - Sep. 2nd 2018
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.
"clouds" was the theme of the 9th art competition, which only exists in Northern Hesse. Out of 186 applications from 27 countries, 74 were selected and realized. Objects, installations, performances and videos were shown at Katzenstein in Habichtswald, at Dörnberg in Zierenberg and at the Habichtswald Nature Park Centre.
The artists found a variety of interpretations on the theme "clouds". The aspects of meteorology, metaphor, social cloud and cloud computing became tangible in the interplay of landscape, sky and art. In tropical summer weather, the numerous visitors discovered the surreally beautiful mountain ranges of the Habichtswald and stunning views together with new art aspects and experiences.
This documentation with photo and film - DVD, print products, PR-press list, texts and information - conveys the impression of a fabulous festival summer.
bewegter wind e.V. would like to thank all artists, sponsors, partners and helpers for their great commitment and their contribution to the success!
