The Skeleton Factory

The Skeleton Factory was a Belgian printing office owned by a pressman/photographer who also created postcards. During WWI it got occupied by the Germans. The owner was still allowed to create postcards but in very limited edition only with German soldiers printed on them. His work got censored, only pro German cards could leave his printing office. He wasn’t even allowed to put his name on them anymore. In the end of the war the soldiers destroyed all the printing machines. Since they the warehouses were left abandoned. Today this place is full of outstanding skeleton graffiti artwork, bringing over a dark message about death, war and decay to make people think about the crazy things they are doing… The warehouses will be demolished soon to make place for a big parking.
