Launched in 2019 with a programme curated by London’s Block Universe (Curators: Katharina Worf and Louise O’Kelly), POWER NIGHT is an annual, experimental and interdisciplinary platform for live work, bringing together historic architecture and cutting-edge performance art, powered by Kunststrom electricity. Every year E-WERK appoints an international guest curator to programme POWER NIGHT in collaboration with E-WERK and to connect artistic concepts with the real production of energy. Performers are encouraged to map the raw spaces of the former coal factory and the listed buildings with their bodies, objects, soundscapes and installations, creating live environments across spaces such as a nearby abandoned Bauhaus designed swimming pool and E-WERK’s galleries, which include a 360m2 Turbine Hall and outdoor sites.
