#209 Helen Turner

I am the Artistic Director and Curator at E-WERK Luckenwalde, which I opened with my partner, the artist Pablo Wendel last September. E-WERK Luckenwalde has a pioneering model, which as a functioning Kunststrom Power Station and Contemporary art Centre produces and supplies ‘art-power’ electricity to the building and national grid in order to finance it’s research into new ecological practices and contemporary art.

We live and work in the power station with our 8 month old son Ray Gustav, Italian mastiff Coal and 12 artists. We are currently incredibly grateful for the company we keep and space we have, to slow down and determine new ways of how to rebuild the world together after the pandemic.
