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.
