Calendar "little wind“ 

In cooperation with the Dernbach Foundation, a calendar was created that conveys something of the wonderful workshop atmosphere of this summer. Interested people can get the calendar in the city halls of Hofgeismar and Liebenau, or order it from the association "bewegter wind" (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Windworks and little wind

Children's art courses in Hofgeismar and Liebenau from August 5th -16th 2020

The association "bewegter wind" (moving wind), together with the Kulturkoffer Hessen, the cities of Hofgeismar and Liebenau, the Gerhard-Fieseler-Foundation and ART regio, has come up with something. In order to ensure that the Hessian summer does not pass completely without wind art, the "little wind" with "Windworks" will be created. "Windworks" are one-day courses in which artists give children and young people insights into topics of wind art and work on them together. You can do a lot with wind, although you can't see it directly.

"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.

Please find attached a press release and photos in higher solution here.

„change?!“ Jury
140 applications from 26 countries

Art, nature and wind - the wind art festival "bewegter wind" offers this unique combination of experiences. Installations, wind art objects, videos and fascinating performances are staged in the northern Hessian landscape.
The anniversary exhibition on the subject of "change ?!" was planned for August 2020 in Hofgeismar and Liebenau in the Reinhardswald Nature Park.

"The development of the corona pandemic has been a source of concern to us for a long time", says curator Reta Reinl, "but we still had hopes that an outdoor event could take place in late summer".  But until 31.8.2020, events with more than 100 people are prohibited in Hesse. How can you limit the number of visitors outdoors without too much expense? In 2018, an estimated 15,000 visitors were on their way to see the wind art.

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.
