POWER NIGHT 2019 Curated by Block Universe
E-WERK Luckenwalde and Bauhaus City Swimming Pool
Curators: Katharina Worf and Louise O’Kelly
E-WERK Luckenwalde opened its doors on 14 September 2019, with the launch of the first iteration of POWER NIGHT, alongside an extensive exhibition programme.
Taking place during Berlin Art Week, on Saturday 14 September, with performances running from 6pm to midnight, POWER NIGHT reflected on the vision of sustainable futures in the context of a historic power station, whose very fabric carries a wealth of history and collective memory. Taking E-WERK’s position as a new sustainable institution and power station, the performance programme asked us to consider our role in shaping the world that we live in.
Block Universe team: Louise O’Kelly, Katharina Worf, Tatjana Damm and Xica Aires
