Folkets Fabrik – The People’s Factory


Anne Märcher & Kristian Krog

Through extensive photo documentation of the factory’s transformation, the inclusion of historical material, interviews with key players and essays, the story of the Malt factory unfolds as a new architectural and cultural meeting point for Ebeltoft and the region. Photographer Jens Lindhe has documented the architectural features in a series of photos that convey materials, spatial experiences and architectural features. Because at Maltfabrikken, the spaces and the many small details are just as important as the whole. Founded as a malting house in 1861 and closed down in 1998, the old Malt Factory was falling apart and facing demolition when a group of local people decided to save its iconic red buildings and turn them into a centre for all kinds of cultural and creative activities. The story of the Malt Factory’s transformation from industrial heritage to modern cultural centre draws threads from the factory buildings’ decaying facades, through the struggle of enthusiasts for a strong community, to an architecturally successful transformation.
