We joined the IBUG festival again as we enjoyed the spirit of the previous years a lot. The week there is like a creative vacation on a distant island: shielded from everyday life, everything and everyone is focused on creative processes.
800 sqm of building front - directly on the main road to Zwickau - was used for an enormous project. An explosion of colors in every sense created a tribute to our first IBUG appearance in 2011 with “Color MY Kingdom, der Film”. The whole effort also implied a political statement regarding the NSU incidents in Zwickau (nationalist mindsets are also referred to as being “brown” in germany).
Before the colors came into play, the plain white writing was supposed to raise questions and contrast the phrase “Color MY Kingdom”. The actual coloring was done in a joint effort of different artists and visitors, so they became a part of the process and the final piece. Color your world. Change it. Open up. Be creative and colourful. It’s your world: if you don’t form it, someone else will.
