In 2020 – a year that has already turned much of what we take for granted on its head – Färgfabriken celebrates its 25th birthday. At the time of writing, the world is facing a major pandemic – a virus that has distracted us from other urgent challenges that the planet is up against. We need to rethink and adapt to a new reality. Culture is needed now more than ever. Culture, in its various forms, asks questions, poses challenges, offers reflections, and shows us alternative worlds.


Färgfabriken has in many of our exhibitions and projects collaborated with inspiring and interesting people from widely different fields. In this section, we will present some of these inspiring and transdisciplinary collaborations. Collaborations that helpt to develop our ideas.

Here you can listen to a conversation with professor Peter Lang, whom has been working with us in various projects since 2016. Currently he is part of the ongoing project Listen.
