The ibug will hold its 16th edition this year. The intention of the urban art festival is to invite international artists from various genres to a symposium for exchange and joint artistic creation. This year’s venue is the former coloured paper factory in Flöha, Saxony, which has been abandoned since the mid-1990s.
The wasteland, which as a historical and social site is an extraordinary industrial facility with a long history and became world-famous thanks to the special papers produced there, is to be revived and transformed into a complete artwork during a creative phase over several weeks. Starting on 3 August, around 60 invited creative people want to gradually transform the area by means of painting and graffiti, illustrations and installations, upcycling, and multimedia.
The results of the creative weeks will then be presented to the public on three festival weekends – from 27 to 29 August, from 3 to 5 September and from 10 to 12 September. In accordance with Saxony’s coronavirus regulations, a festival programme, including guided tours and films, music, and performances, as well as special offers and workshops for pupils is planned.
