KUNSTSTROM: Opening E-WERK Luckenwalde x POWER NIGHT
15 Sep 2019 – 28 Mar 2020
A new contemporary arts institution, located in a former coal power station dating from 1913, is set to launch during Berlin Art Week with an interdisciplinary programme featuring artists including Nicolas Deshayes, Lucy Joyce, umschichten, Nora Turato and Nina Beier. Located 30 minutes south of Berlin, E-WERK Luckenwalde is jointly directed by Pablo Wendel and Helen Turner and powered entirely by art electricity ‘Kunststrom’. In 2017, the art collective Performance Electrics gGmbH led by Pablo Wendel acquired the former brown-coal power station with the vision to reanimate it as a sustainable Kunststrom power station and feed power back to the national grid as well as function as a large scale contemporary art centre.
