A growing exhibition curated by Lucia Pietroiusti in collaboration with​​ Katharina Worf, Adriana Tranca and Helen Turner
22 October 2021 – 31 July 2022
There are fertile soils, and fertilised ones. More-than-human emergences and resistances. Capricious goddesses and then just boundless, vibrant love. Being Mothers is a cumulative exhibition bringing together artistic interventions and research processes that reflect on environmental care, repair and endurance in a more-than-human context. Being Mothers will feature installations, offerings, performances and film works by Revital Cohen & Tuur Van Balen, Cooking Sections, Karrabing Film Collective, Isabel Lewis & Sissel Tolaas, Tabita Rezaire and Himali Singh Soin.

In 2021, E-WERK invited Lucia Pietroiusti (Founder and Curator of General Ecology at Serpentine, London; Shanghai Biennale co-curator, 2021 and Curator of Sun & Sea, the Lithuanian Pavilion at the 58th Venice Biennale) to curate POWER NIGHTS. For the first time the programme extended as a long term, cumulative exhibition programme in an effort to champion new exhibition formats focused on sustainable deceleration. POWER NIGHTS took the form of an immersive installation programme across the spaces of E-WERK’s campus, propagating new forms with workshops, events and happenings and culminating in an evening of live events on 30 April 2022.

POWER NIGHTS: Being Mothers, 2021 kindly supported by Fonds Darstellende Künste with funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, E.ON Stiftung, UBS and Institute Francais.
