There is a wind tunnel on the roof of the art school in Zurich. It is an open space that provides a gentle airstream molding the invisible. In the third edition of the Wind Tunnel Festival, we look for winds that leave the streamlines and swirl in different directions. For our winds whisper the vast number of multiple stories swirling off the grid.

Together with all participants, we follow the multiple flows to create narratives through imaginative space-making and transdisciplinary co-learning. The Wind Tunnel is a walk-in sculpture with its ecosystem meant for convening wind and people to share practices and challenges.

On May 24–25, 2024, the Wind Tunnel invites artists, scientists, and the audience for exchange and encounters. In open rehearsals, we spend time together and search for new insights and moments of connection.

We will approach the wind through sound, film, literature, and music with contributions by Debasish Bipul Borah, Lizeth Cordoba Adarme & Manuel Yawar Muyuy, Florian Dombois, Samia Henni, KUĆĆA, Madafi Pierre, Raqs Media Collective, Helene Romakin, Jörg Scheller, Dubravka Sekulić, U5.  

The Wind Tunnel Festival is cared for by ~tilde. @tilde_operator / @der_windtunnel.
