Award ceremony at the 10th International Wind Art Festival "bewegter wind" in Hofgeismar and Liebenau 

Walking in the footsteps of art

Forty-five art objects which, in interaction with the wind, create new perspectives on the landscape - and at the same time stimulate further thinking around the theme of "Change?!" - change: The 10th International Wind Art Competition "bewegter wind" has attracted several thousand art and nature lovers from near and far to Hofgeismar and Liebenau. On Sunday, 29 August 2021, the popular outdoor festival came to an end with the award ceremony for five outstanding works of art. In addition to wind art installations, nine videos and performances were shown. At the end of the successful art festival, curator Reta Reinl drew a positive conclusion: "For two weeks, forty-five artists* from all over the world showed their works on the Kramberg and in the Diemel Valley and thus initiated an exciting dialogue on climate change. We are very happy about the great response - not only from visitors, but also from participating artists and all supporters. We would like to express our sincere thanks for this."

Art experiences on the mountain and in the river valley

10th International Art Competition "bewegter wind" 2021 on the theme "Change?!"

After intensive planning and consideration, it is now certain: the popular wind art festival "bewegter wind" in North Hesse can take place! From August 15th to 29th, 2021, 58 artists from Germany and around the world will show their installations, videos and performances. This year's locations are Hofgeismar and Liebenau in the Reinhardswald Nature Park in northern Hesse. The moving wind is a free outdoor exhibition, accessible at any time, that captivates art connoisseurs and nature lovers alike.

Extended Deadline

New Deadline
27th April 2020

Corona influences everything in these bizarre times. We have received many inquiries whether the 10th wind art festival on the subject of "change?!" can take place from 16th to 30st August 2020.
We cannot say this for sure in the daily changing news.But we assume that an open-air event in late summer has a good chance of realization.
We will react in every phase of development and adjust our planning.

The first adjustment in corona times:
We are extending the deadline for the 10th "moving wind" ideas competition on the theme of "change?!" until Monday, April 27, 2020.

With each additional week, we will be able to better assess the situation. We hope that this will help us to counteract the uncertainty that has arisen and would like to expressly encourage applications.
We will find ways to adapt to the situation. In this special case it might be possible to send more works, for example, which we build up instead of the artists.

The dialogue on the subject of "change?!" initiated by the competition theme is very encouraging. We are looking forward to the many artist ideas on this topic.
Here is the link to the complete call for entries.

"change?!" postponed to 2021 - applications from 26 countries

The 10th Wind Art Festival will be
postponed to August 2021

For a long time we had the hope that the 10th wind art festival "bewegter wind" could take place as an open air event in late summer 2020.

We discussed all the requirements, transport and travel problems, uncertainties regarding the corona pandemic and the fact that applications for the art competition "change?!" were received from 26 countries, of which only German participation could be relatively certain. Unfortunately we had to decide that the exhibition of the 10th Wind Art Festival will be postponed until August 2021.

Please find attached a press release and photos in higher solution here.



The 10th Wind Art Festival will be
postponed to August 2021

„change?!“ Jury
140 applications from 26 countries

Art, nature and wind - the wind art festival "bewegter wind" offers this unique combination of experiences. Installations, wind art objects, videos and fascinating performances are staged in the northern Hessian landscape.
The anniversary exhibition on the subject of "change ?!" was planned for August 2020 in Hofgeismar and Liebenau in the Reinhardswald Nature Park.

"The development of the corona pandemic has been a source of concern to us for a long time", says curator Reta Reinl, "but we still had hopes that an outdoor event could take place in late summer".  But until 31.8.2020, events with more than 100 people are prohibited in Hesse. How can you limit the number of visitors outdoors without too much expense? In 2018, an estimated 15,000 visitors were on their way to see the wind art.

"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."
