POWER NIGHT 2019

E-WERK Luckenwalde and Bauhaus City Swimming Pool

Guest 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 model for a sustainable institution and power station, the performance programme asked us to consider our role in shaping the world that we live in.

The free programme was co-curated by Katharina Worf and Louise O’Kelly from London’s performance art festival Block Universe.

POWER NIGHT included new commissions and premieres by eight international artists and collaborators:

Performance Electrics (GER)

Cecilia Bengolea (AR/FR) with Craig Black Eagle (JM)

Fernanda Muñoz-Newsome with India Harvey and Josh Antonia Grigg (UK)

Nora Turato (CR/NL)

marikiscrycrycry (US/UK) in collaboration with Gareth Chambers (UK)

Nina Beier (DK)

Rowdy SS (UK)

Charismatic Megafauna (UK)
