KRFTWRK = Kraftwerk (power plant).                                                                                            KRFTWRK is a social-political statement and an ironic comment on current problems like production and waste of electricity in industrial states, and overweight and lack of fitness of its population. The target of KRFTWRK is to create a consciousness towards these topics with artistic measures. The project is situated in the fields of architecture, installation, net art and fine arts and consists of artistic parts happening in virtual and real space.  krftwrk.org
