In 2015 the „Industriebrachenumgestaltung” – short IBUg – celebrates it’s 10th anniversary. Before the festival starts in August, IBUg goes on tour found it´s way into this years OSTRALE! Since 2007 this almost three-month exhibition attracts ten thousands of visitors to the saxonian capital of Dresden. On a area of more than 20.000 m² including a former slaughterhouse known and unknown artists from all over the world display their work. One focus of this years OSTRALE is on graffiti and street art. Because of that artists of the IBUg family were invited to show their skills. So for example Florian Huber from Hamburg tries to protect a piece of industrial history with his welded site fences and Dr. Molrok, well known for his massive wooden dragonfly on last years IBUg, made some impressive statuary out of steel. Connoisseurs will also discover traces of El Bocho, the Berlin duo Quintessenz and the IBUg founder Tasso. On Friday, the 10th of July, OSTRALE opens it´s doors for visitors and wont close until the 27th of September. Right at the outset the exhibition dedicates the opening weekend to urban art with a OSTRALE 2015 – Graffiti-Special. More information about the OSTRALE on: www.ostrale.de
