Färgfabriken (The color factory) call themselves “an exhibition space and experimental platform for art and architecture as well as social and urban development”. Which I agree on. I’ve seen many exhibitions here, from Building Blocks, architectural buildings made by children’s demands and fantasy, to one person’s self portrait over a period of 10 years. During my latest visit they turned the main hall into a complete tape installation where you could climb into a tunnel made out of only tape. The opportunities here are endless and you get very surprised at how it inspires you.
Not only are the exhibitions world famous, they serve great coffee and lunch with traditional Swedish tastes and ingredients. The flavors are based on Sweden, as are the ingredients.
While you are at Färgfabriken, stroll towards Gröndal, a small residential suburb and visit Gröndals cafe. They offer the best Gotlandspannkaka (pancake from Gotland). During summer, people stop for a swim at Lake Trekanten or Vinterviken, a few blocks from Färgfabriken. From here, take the tram back to Liljeholmen and take the red subway line back to the city centre.
