2011: The radioactive contamination of Fukushima and the 25th anniversary of the nuclear reactor disaster of Chernobyl only a few weeks later dramatically made people worldwide aware of the fact that electricity does not simply come straight from the socket for endless use. Electricity is a highly embattled resource, the production of which often is non-sustainable and most often fraught with danger. Electricity is used in innumerable ways and is a commercial good but at the same time a power full of mysteries and invisible energy the actual functioning of which we can hardly understand or explain even today. “Live Wire. Art and Electricity” is an invitation to reconsider our attitude towards electricity and how we take it for granted, the exhibition tries to put electricity into a historical context and to provoke new sensual experiences.
