Theme of the competition "Change ?!". Wind is a symbol for change, movement and transformation. The climate is changing. Meteorologically, but also socially. Changes on a large or small scale - wanted, suffered, hated, longed for. Are we their victims, their cause...or both?
Threatening, but also future-oriented possibilities are opening up. Is apocalypse on the horizon, or rather a variety of possible solutions that shape the future. The future can be composed of small and large changes.
How are participatory experimental spaces created? Where does the fresh wind that moves us come from and when does it remain a gentle breeze? We are looking for proposals that illustrate change.
We look forward to your multifaceted ideas which contribute to the interpretation of this topic. Artistic answers in the form of wind objects, installations, performances and LandArt in its widest sense are asked for. Diversity and originality from all fields of art are welcome. The organizers will try to find possibilities of realization together with the artists even for the most unusual entries.
