The Tuchfabrik Müller (Cloth Factory) is an unusual site. It conveys the impression as if history “itself” had set up the museum: The machines and tools, the large and small objects are there where they always belonged. Films, small installations and models support the experience of the factory world and tell of the work, of heat and steam in the dyeing workshop, of fascinating transmission mechanisms with countless wheels and cogs. Brief extracts from interviews with former employees bring their experience and feelings to life.
