The history behind
Cooperation between art and the corporate world is a construction that has a special history in Herning. Therefore Herning has the right preconditions to take on the task as a permanent tradition every other year to bring together businesses and artists in the creation of art.

The former Director of the Angli factory, Aage Damgaard, produced shirts on the premises that is now Herning Kunstmuseum. In the shirt factory he created the model for cooperation between corporate businesses and artists which is the historic foundation for Socle du Monde. In the factory worked artists like Piero Manzoni, Robert Jacobsen, Sven Dalsgaard, Svend Wiig Hansen and Paul Gadegaard.
