Reichenbach/Leipzig – 22.05.2019

For two weekends – from 23 to 25 August and from 30 August to 1 September

The „Industriebrachenumgestaltung“ – ibug for short – is moving this year to Reichenbach in the Vogtland region for its 14th edition. From mid-August, a former railway depot will become a canvas and playground for artists* from all over the world. For two weekends – from 23 to 25 August and from 30 August to 1 September – curious people and art lovers can then experience a symbiosis of painting and graffiti, illustrations and installations, performance and multimedia in a temporary exhibition. There will also be a colourful festival programme with guided tours and films, discussions and artist talks, an art market and music. Between the festival weekends there will also be offers for school classes.
