FLIGHTGRAF transforms the facade of Tuchfabrik Müller into a giant projection screen. The title of the project 230 Millionen + 1 refers to the
number of new garments that are discarded without being worn each year from
fashion stores in Germany. This incredible number and its consequences for people, resources and the environment are interwoven in the interplay between the architecture of the cloth factory, sounds, and images to create a visually powerful story.

Starting from the threads of looms, FLIGHTGRAF’s sensual abstract animation describes the beauty of textiles and the way they are made. At the same time, a threatening future scenario emerges in which mass consumption is causing resource consumption to rise immeasurably.

Tuchfabrik Müller continues the discourse on consumer behavior during FUTURE 21 in the special exhibition “Must have”. In addition to a critical look at the history of consumption, current trends such as sharing, upcycling, and minimalism are presented.
