International Wind Art in Northern Hesse
5th wind art festival “moving wind” – "Turbulenzen"
Aug. 15th - 29th 2010
Diemelstadt / Waldeck / Nationalparkzentrum Kellerwald / Frankenberg
"Turbulences" was the topic of the 5th International Art Competition "moving wind", which was announced by the association for the promotion of wind art and intercultural communication. Trying to equalize opposites creates turbulences, which cause rise and fall, swirl and a fresh start. 100 exhibits by artists from 20 countries and 4 continents showed diversity with wind objects, installations, videos and performances at four places in Waldeck-Frankenberg in Germany.
Turbulent scopes varied from subtle to provocative, from joyous to meditative and were exposed in attractive landscapes. Even the weather played with the topic and offered not only the summer sun. Nevertheless, there was a strikingly blithe atmosphere at the sites. Art lovers, tourists, bikers, locals, school groups, tourists and companies met at wind art in landscape and came into communication. Since many of the exhibiting artists came personally, the lively dialogue at the venues and among the artists has been intensified.
Wind art in landscape has made many visitors curious and has attracted to trips in the countryside of northern Hesse. Moreover, this exciting combination has promoted new ideas. From wind to wind.
Many thanks to the artists, the sponsors, the supporters, the helpers and all those who realised "bewegter wind" 2010!
