ibug 2018: Former factory becomes temporary gallery

Former factory becomes temporary gallery for urban art festival in Chemnitz, Germany. In less than a month, the „ibug“ enters a new round. Again, this summer more than 120 national and international artists travel to West-Saxony for the renowned urban art festival. In Chemnitz, the „City of Modernity“, they transform a former needle and blanks factory called NAPLAFA, a remnant of saxonian industrial culture, into a synthesis of the arts.

 

For the 13th festival edition, creatives from all over the world such as Various & Gould (D), Kera 1 (D), UderとSchindl (D), Tape That (D), Milo (CZ), Inso Mundo (CH), Opiemme (I), Angel Toren (E), Spidertag (E), Elparo (F), Arthur Louis Ignoré (F), Wasp Elder (GB), Jo Higgs (GB), Helen Bur (GB), Lost Optics (RO), Alonso Cisneros (USA), Ilana Pichon (CDN), Halo (BR), Colectivo Licuado (ROU) or Metzican (MEX) announced themselves.

First-timers, passionate visitors and art-lovers get the possibility to visit the ibug twice – from the 24th to the 26th of August and again from the 31st of August to the 2nd of September. They can expect an extraordinary potpourri of murals and graffiti, illustrations and installations, performance and multimedia, as well as a extensive program including guided tours, movies, artist-talks, panel-discussions, an art-market and, of course, parties. Tickets will be on presale online soon.

The background:
The ibug´s roots go back to the year 2006, the small saxonian city Meerane, an artist called Tasso and his pursuit of development. The first small get-together over 10 years ago meanwhile became an internationally known festival for urban art and culture. Traditionally taking place at the last weekend in August somewhere in West-Saxony, an industrial brownfield is opened for Streetart-, Graffiti-, and Media-Artists from all over the world. Each one of them brings in his or her creativity into a synthesis of the arts. The mix of genres, styles, materials and techniques as well as the history of the brownfield play a key role in the annual experiment.
