Bomull och vällingklockor – ljudkonst och guidade vandringar i bruksorten Tollered
The mill town Tollered interprets the theme of the Biennial: In 1833, Nääs Fabriker, a spinning mill, was started by Peter Vilhelm Berg and connected Tollered with the world. The mill closed down in 1981 when the textile industry left Sweden for low-wage countries. Today the industrial community is filled with industries of our time – hospitality industry, creators and entrepreneurs. Site-specific sound art works, created in 2018 and reactivated, deepen the understanding of the history of the site. This program is a collaboration with Alingsås kommun. The textile city of Alingsås is presented in the program Textil stadsvandring i Alingsås 3/10 at 2 pm.
