Our Factory

A self-confident pose in front of the machinery, a smile coming through colourful threads, hands that speak of labour. Men and women doing day or night shifts at their factories momentarily pause for the camera. Petra Rainer has continuously photographed people in their workplace. For Our Factory, images were taken in 11 manufacturing companies in Vorarlberg; snapshots of the central European factory and very personal portraits of people who work within it. Also included is a preface by Barbara Motter and literary texts and poems by writers from Vorarlberg, Linda Achberger, Muhammet Ali Bas, Kadisha Belfiore, Lina Hofstädter, Erika Kronabitter, Yasemin Meteer, Theresia Moosbrugger, Maya Rinderer, Sarah Rinderer, Günter Vallaster and Christina Walker.
