Färgfabriken has, since its founding in 1995, served as a platform for contemporary cultural expressions, with an emphasis on art, architecture and urban planning. In many of our projects and exhibitions, both in Sweden and abroad, we have developed methods with the purpose of exploring and trying to understand the complexities of our constantly changing world. Färgfabriken is driven by a desire to reflect upon the heterogeneous and multicultural world we live in. We want to test the limits of what an art space is, and could become.
It is important to create conditions for free and creative thinking. In this context, art is central. It acts as a catalyst for innovation in the meeting with the rest of society, as well as with individuals. Färgfabriken’s projects and exhibitions have a wide audience, including active decision makers, creators, artists and scientists – those who can make a difference today. Everyone is welcome to Färgfabriken.
Our approach creates space for exhibitions and projects that might not find its natural place elsewhere. Färgfabriken wants to make the invisible visible.
The globally increasing migration to cities is creating new forms of urbanity and cultural patterns. Therefore Färgfabriken is interested in working with the city as a phenomenon. Satellite and collaborative projects with institutions and activists around the world gives us inspiration and experience. It is essential to carry out comprehensive and relevant exhibitions in Stockholm. We want to bring the world to Stockholm, and Färgfabriken to the world.
