For decades, Tuchfabrik Müller, or Müller cloth factory, produced heavy wool fabrics, but was forced to close its doors in 1961 due to international competition. After extensive restoration work, the fully preserved factory world has been open to the general public since 2000. Where once defective things were repaired or repurposed out of thrift, today questions about resource-conserving consumer behavior are addressed, especially in the museum’s special cultural history exhibitions.
Every evening of the festival, at 7:30 p.m., FLIGHTGRAF transforms the façade of the Müller cloth factory into a huge projection screen.
In addition, on 20.3. From 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. a workshop on Boro and Sashiko embroidery will take place with the textile artist Claudia Merx.
