Blooms, Not Bombs at the Soap Factory

Story by Michelle Alimoradi

The Soap Factory in Minneapolis will host an art exhibit that’s described as “a performance installation.” Amber Ginsburg and Joseph Madrigal are planning to return the factory to a site of industrial production, re-creating an assembly line for dummy test bombs like ones that were manufactured during World War One. They’ll make these bombs out of terra cotta, but the purpose is far from the original intent of bomb making.
In this case, it’s all about spring, color and life.
