Cold Light 
A new video installation and virtual reality work by Lindsay Seers and Keith Sargent in collaboration with Performance Electrics will take place from September 17 to December 11. The exhibition will occupy E-WERK’s Turbine Hall and Engine Room and has been shaped by the artists’ research into the life and work of Nikola Tesla, the title drawing on historic references to the first electric lights; no longer reliant on fire for illumination, the new electric light bulbs were referred to as “cold light.” It is the first time Wendel will collaborate with Seers and Sargent and this will be the biggest presentation of work by Seers and Sargent in Germany to date. Seers and Sargent blend objects, environments, light, sound, VR and CGI to contemplate scientific theories related to consciousness in a search for truths. They will work alongside Wendel who will elucidate the mysterious, occultish and ephemeral character of electricity, paying homage to Tesla’s most ambitious project the Wardenclyffe Tower, a wireless energy transmitter. Cold Light takes a complex stand on how time exists in the human brain and the significance of electromagnetism in all things. The works display a desire to edit the films in the way the brain functions as described in neuroscience (a fragmentation of persistent thoughts and changing states). The exhibition is curated by Helen Turner in collaboration with Adriana Tranca and Katharina Worf. 

The Real Line 
Also opening on September 17 is The Real Line, an exhibition about movement and moving; about the point and the line and all the gestures in between. It brings together Bucharest-based artists Arantxa Etcheverria, Adelina Ivan and Alina Popa (1982–2019) who are working with geometry and its extensions in gender inequality and our society’s constructs in what is known as a women’s place. The idiosyncrasy of this proposition comes from the direct confrontation of the apparently opposing concepts of feminism and domesticity in a critical attempt to investigate the possibility of one reinforcing the other. Can domesticity be a site of transformative feminist discourse and praxis? Can geometry, a traditionally male dominated discipline, be an agent for this transformation? The exhibition is curated by Adriana Tranca in collaboration with Helen Turner and Katharina Worf. 

Currents
The world’s first ever 100% Kunststrom carbon negative music festival will also takes place at E-WERK Luckenwalde this Autumn, on October 8. Currents is a festival of contemporary art and electronic music, presenting a mix of internationally acclaimed artists intertwined with emerging acts. The one-day event is curated by Khidja, a music production and DJ duo from Romania who perform worldwide, and create musical scores, moving-image, new media installations and performance shows.

About E-WERK Luckenwalde
E-WERK Luckenwalde is located in a former coal power station built in 1913, ceasing production in 1989 after the fall of the Berlin wall. Located 30 minutes south of Berlin, E-WERK Luckenwalde is jointly directed by artist Pablo Wendel and curator Helen Turner. In 2017, the art collective Performance Electrics gGmbH led by Pablo Wendel acquired the former brown-coal power station with the vision to reanimate it as a sustainable Kunststrom (art power) Kraftwerk to feed power into the national grid by burning locally sources waste wood chips to make electricity, and function as a large scale contemporary art centre. As part of POWER NIGHT in 2019, Performance Electrics gGmbH formally switched the power of the former factory back on.
