what’s new

faktory is a manufacturer for site-specific art and culture projects, focusing on research, concept, strategy, and production. Thereby arise unique experiences and environments for Cities and People to share artistic approach.

We conceptualize and organize private & public events, site specific artworks and exhibitions, festivals and urban interventions. The applied working methods enable both an experimental setup as well as proven methods to interweave art and culture in everyday city lives. Working with both private & public institutions, faktory is breaking new ground by adopting different perspectives and methodologies to shape urban space. faktory was founded by art scientist and sociologist Aileen Treusch. Since 2016 she advises municipalities, investors and planning offices.

Approach

faktory believes in a creative world shaped through social contacts and togetherness. Egos are 90s!

We operate through a network of partners who deal with the temporary or permanent design of environments and experiences. Our projects are inspired by architecture, design, sociology, poetry, economics, gems and music. They investigate different contexts and connections between art and culture, urban sphere and city societies. Topics such as art & culture concepts for cities straddling architecture and urban development, living environments as well as the correlation of digital and analog space have been the center of interest.

Press & Prizes

Together with our Clients and Collaborateurs we enrich everyday citylife and contribute to a legible sophistication of societies. Our work has been awarded and published on numerous occasions.

Aileen Treusch

„Art in the city creates friction that has an extraordinary potential for creativity, culminating in a plurality of processes and activities. Art not only makes the world more beautiful and inspiring, it makes the world a better place for people to live together. Art makes cities.“

Aileen Treusch has been gaining experience in art and culture since 2004. Her passion for private & public cultural events & occasions was largely shaped by her decade long work at Centralstation Darmstadt. She studied art history, social sciences and economics focusing on Italian renaissance, architecture, urban planning and institutional critique in Heidelberg and Frankfurt. In 2015 she completed a masterclass at the Herbert Foundation in Ghent that explored the art historical and critical comprehension gained from a sustained focus on a single artwork. After spending an intensive year at Städel Museum and Liebieghaus in 2016 she founded faktory. She is commissioned to advise organizations and initiates own projects.

While a supposedly clear distinction between art and sociocultural environment is becoming increasingly blurred within her projects, the perpetual interaction between them clearly emerges.
