The region around the polar circle (80° North) is a highly fragile, endangered ecological system, which is already showing signs of early damage. The changes in the climate of our mother Earth are visible in this region in an alarming intensity. The threats to the fragile polar ecology are augmented by industrial exploitation and so called “robber economy”. Many consolidated companies and national states struggle already to get control over the rich mineral resources hidden for centuries under the now melting arctic ice cap. This does not only endanger nature but is also a threat to global peace in a world hungry for resources.
We, polarizing artists from Guetersloh, Berndt Pfeifer and Johannes Zoller, joined by Dr. Amnon Gildor, an unconventional spiritual worker, plead in our art campaign “WENDEKREIS 80 deg. N” (“Polar circle 80 deg. North”) which starts on May 16, 2009, that the north pole and arctic region remain what they are now and always have been: a healthy part of the earth and a land of all mankind.
Our call stands under the motto “the north pole is for everyone, everyone is for the North Pole”.
The Inuit people of Greenland will light this summer their holy fire again, after a long period in which no trees grew on this island to supply firewood. Through the climatic changes trees can grow again on Greenland. We embrace this ceremony and wish every human being living north of the polar circle as well as everywhere around the world, that the warmth coming from the holy fire might warm our hearts, and show us the way to a life in peace, happiness and harmony within ourselves, with nature around us and with all our brothers and sisters of mankind.
We use our freedom as artists and spiritual workers to plead, that the land beyond the “Wendekreis 80°N” is symbolically declared as GODS LAND.
For the “Langenachtderkunst” (“Long night of the arts”) on May 16, 2009 in Guetersloh we build a bridge between the people of our city and the people of Greenland, creating a healing connection that places love for our planet above all differences and polarizations, liberating us from conflicts and increasing our awareness for the creation. The water tower of Guetersloh and North Pole will be for this night artistically and energetically united.
