Hours in Fabra & Coats


Fabra & Coats was a textile factory in Barcelona that produced threads. It recently turned into a creation space into what is being called 'Factories of Creation', according to recent culture policies and shifting ideologies. Textile was the leading industry at the beginning of the XXth century, and it started in Spain in the coast of Catalonia.

During my residency at the factory, I ran into more than a hundred coats that belonged to the former workers of the factory. For one day, I asked the other residents, all culture-related professionals, to wear one of the coats during their working hours and to continue with their usual activity.
