In Berlin Mitte, on well-known Torstrasse, a new creative label has found its space at no.138.
‘Dudes Factory‘ stands for consuming, deconstructing and experimenting with art and design:
On a regular basis a new artist becomes part of the Dudes Factory playground to create his own collection.From unique artwork, to clothing, fashion accessorizes, skateboards and much more. The ‚dudes‘ nurture and direct their artists, while challenging them in using experimental new materials or trying new formats. While many critics still discuss whether a certain piece is art or not and ponder on what art actually is, Dudes Factory jumped up to the next level and created an online software, the ‚Dudes LAB‘. This ‚Laboratory‘ acts as a creative platform and tool which allows users to de-construct artwork, put together by other artists and then apply onto shirts, fashion accessories or other products. All pieces in the store are of a limited edition production.
Here, an illustration can be disassembled without any negative connotations and we are allowed to like only certain elements about an artwork. We can take those details and create a ‚new‘ piece. The outcome is an individual piece of art with a fading history of another artist, and for the first time there are really no boundaries between the end-user and the artist. You may call it a new movement or a new way of de-constructing art and design – but it is definitely a new way of treating art: as a material and approach to communication.
With a constantly growing product line and portfolio of artwork, the ‚dudes‘ also offer product design, creative workshops for children and grown-ups, as well as tutorials and presentations of the ever-growing art portfolio. Including artists such as Dxtr, Peachbeach, Funny Fun, 110 Special Black, Mc Bess.
