WAF Monthly Talk with Helen Turner

Hear from Helen Turner Co-Artistic Director from E-WERK Luckenwalde in Germany, as she talks about their unique model providing an inspiring renewable source of energy, creativity and critical debate.

Their contemporary art programme has been curated to canvas a diverse range of exhibition-making; from new architectural commissions to historical presentations, performative events and interdisciplinary long-term research projects. Their programme responds to the building’s history, future and exhibition spaces, which range from white neutral gallery spaces to a 350m² Turbine Hall and functional engine room.

Working alongside the inhabitants of Luckenwalde, from the veteran power station workers to the city’s politicians, E-WERK cultivates a sense of shared space and thus shared opportunity. With the intention of creating a cultural revival in Brandenburg, the programme is both inclusive and responsive to wide-ranging audiences.

The ambitious curatorial programme will reach out to the inhabitants of Luckenwalde, Berlin and internationally by staging exhibitions with accessible entry points and acknowledging the socio-political context of Luckenwalde and its history.
