This year, IBUg Festival took place in a small textile factory in Limbach, abandoned just after the fall of the Berlin Wall. The project “The Hidden Text”, attempts to elaborate a reflection on history and the marks that certain events leave behind. In Germany, the former division remains there in a different way, it’s visible through architecture, people’s life style, economy, or even social control and politics.
