RUbug 2022 – Sleeping Beauty woke up very briefly

Last weekend RUbug festival for urban art came to an end. From 20 to 29 May, Westerholt Colliery became a centre of urban art and more than 60 artists from the fields of street art, graffiti, installation and performance, as well as painting and graphics, showed their work. The artworks were all created on the colliery site itself and are therefore unique pieces with a strong relation to the spot. Some of the artists worked with materials they found on the site.

Too bad it’s already over! For me it was like being in a fairytale land and a total sensory overload; I just couldn’t get enough of it. What will become of all these crazy rooms now? The Neon Room where Adnan Kassim, who escaped the Lebanon war, tells his life story? Where will the thousands of origami birds go when winter comes? Where does the last door lead and will Pac-Man escape the ghosts? In any case, Saint Barbara, patron saint of all miners, guards the now once again abandoned facilities.
