International Wind Art in Northern Hesse

wind art landscape
bewegter wind e.V. organises wind art festivals and offers for wind art and intercultural communication.
Wind is a symbol of spirit and communication in almost all cultures of the world.

"bewegter wind" stages wind art in this multifaceted landscape. Wind art is fleeting, can always be experienced anew and remains unfinished in a fascinating way. At various locations - in front of forests, high-altitude landscapes, lakes or quarries - objects are created that make the wind visible and allow it to merge with the art.

The international wind art festival takes place as a competition every two years at changing locations in the region. "bewegter wind" is a landscape exhibition with a supporting programme, art competition, artists' meeting, cultural exchange, exhibition tour and children's programme.

The 11th wind art festival "bewegter wind" will take place from 13th-27th August, 2023 in Wolfhagen.

To Remember

In 2022, three bewegter-wind artists died who were an enrichment for several wind art festivals:

Dr Marion Baumann exhibited "Anemomobile" at AIR condition(s) in Wolfhagen in 2012. In 2014 she was part of "between" in Söhrewald with the installation "between media". In 2018, Marion installed the much-visited installation "Die vermessene Seele" on Dörnberg as a contribution to "clouds/Wolken". She was a cheerful, dedicated person and very fond of the wind with all its aspects.

Robin Kurka was one of the exhibiting artists at " turbulences" in 2010 with the work "Dancer Group" in Sachsenhausen. His dancers were repeatedly nominated for the audience award. Robin was a welcomed guest at the artists' meetings, who was a fantastic cook.

Hannah Streefkerk installed many hundreds of pompoentjes at the " Turbulences" in Frankenberg in 2010 and received an honourable mention from the jury. In 2014 she installed hovering leaves in Söhrewald for "between". This delicate, almost inconspicuous work "To Remember" reached right to the heart of the visitors and the jury for its visualisation of this state between becoming and passing away. It was awarded the 1st prize.

It is so sad that these wonderful artists had to die so early. We think fondly of the lively exchanges and keep them in good memory.
