Coal, 2019, Performative Intervention, 20 Min
Turbine Hall and Engine Room
Performance Electrics launched POWER NIGHT and the opening of the new institution with a performative intervention in E-WERK’s Turbine Hall and adjunct Engine Room. Performance Electrics (Pablo Wendel) reactivated the mechanical infrastructure of the 1913 power station in order to autonomously power the contemporary art programme. Since 14 September 2019, E-WERK has fulfilled its long term mission to feed Kunststrom (art power) electricity into the national grid.
