In the world of bodypainting, the World Bodypainting Festival (WBF) has always stood as the ultimate celebration of creativity and artistic expression. As we reflect on our journey, the 25th WBF marked a pivotal moment for us as organizers. It signified a turning point as we embarked on an exciting new chapter.
Our goal was clear: to transform the established and proven outdoor event format into a cutting-edge, weather-independent, indoor experience. For the first time in the history of the WBF, from September 26th to 30th, 2023, we moved to the Messearena Klagenfurt.
This new format, with a strong focus on bodypainting, make-up art, as well as on photography, was a resounding success with participants from 42 nations. Initial doubts were swiftly dispelled and transformed into a positive vibe, thanks to the spectacular transformation of the Messearena, centered around the theme "Welcome to Wonderland."
