From Russia to Argentina:

Conclusion and award of the artists at the international wind art festival "bewegter wind 2018" on the topic "Clouds".

Zierenberg / Habichtswald. On Sunday, September 2, 2018, the 9th Wind Art Festival "bewegter wind" came to a festive end. In front of numerous guests and artists, curator Reta Reinl drew an extremely positive conclusion. She said: "We estimate that a total of around 12,000 visitors from all over Germany attended the Wind Art Festival - they will certainly remember this unique experience of art and nature in Germany for a long time! For two weeks, art objects, videos and exciting performances could be experienced in front of special scenery in the Habichtswald nature park and in the Zierenberg district - free of charge and accessible at any time. "64 artists from 21 countries took part and devoted themselves to the theme 'Clouds - Clouds' from a wide variety of perspectives," reports Reta Reinl.

The artist Constanze Schüttoff showed walk-in, stranded data clouds, Alwie Arninkhoff had cumulus clouds piled up and the Turkish artists Hazal Cinar and Begüm Tekay attracted the attention of the visitors with their clouds to snap on. Equally popular were the word clouds by Gerhard Raab and the Social Cloud at Helfensteine, which the artist Ralf Witthaus created with numerous volunteers from the region as a lawnmower drawing. Furthermore, Judith Mann made a cloud palpable and tangible with her “Nebel-Aue” and Jürgen Heinz showed the perpetual, fascinating dance of clouds in "Moving Clouds". Curator Reta Reinl emphasizes: "Not only the artists named as examples, but all participating artists have contributed to an all-round successful event with their works. Our wind art festival is also distinguished by its strong local presence: Many visitors took the opportunity to get in touch with international artists, for example during the week of construction, and thus experience art up close.
