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."
