In 2008, a new “fitness-generator”, specially developed for the Power & Illumination Project by technical designer Johannes Köpp, was finalized, allowing the project to increase it’s efficiency considerably.
From this point on, the Power & Illumination Project entered into a new phase, reducing its visibility and focusing mainly on the task of energy-providing. The first such “energy-action” took place in February 2009 in cooperation with Internationalistisk Ideale – a Copenhagen-based journal on contemporary art and culture, created and edited by artists and theorists: http://www.ideale.dk/.
Collaborating with he fitness center Elixia Vitalclub Berlin Mitte, The Power & Illumination Project provided the electricity for the layout and editing of Internationalistisk Ideale’s second edition, which was focusing on contemporary visions of Utopia and was connected to the simultaneous Utopia-exhibition at Arken Museum of Modern Art.
The release of Internationalistisk Ideale #2 – Utopia took place in the exhibition space Torget at Kongens Nytorv in Copenhagen
