International Wind Art in Northern Hesse
8th wind art festival “moving wind” – "changing horizons"
Aug. 14th - 28th 2016
Offenberg / Rochollpark / Hofgeismar / Burgberg bei Trendelburg
"Changing horizons" was the theme of the 8th Art competition. 158 applications from 25 countries and 4 continents were received. Changing perspectives and experiences, uncertainty and enrichment, break-up and disappearance were addressed by the artists with their drafts. 74 objects, installations, performances and videos were presented at the Offenberg and the Rochollpark in Hofgeismar and the Burgberg at Trendelburg in the landscape exhibition. With splendid summer weather a lot of visitors made their way to experience many aspects of wind art in the countryside between sunrise at the Friedenseiche and full moon at Offenberg. The supporting program of the wind art festival offered additional variations on the theme: wind dance and wind whisper of AktionstheaterKassel and a concert of the "Talking Horns" in the Carlsbahntunnel.
The present documentation with photo- and video- DVD, printed matters, press list, texts and information gives an impression of a wonderful festival summer.
