The special qualities of this art electricity are its diverse production processes and its unique ability as art to deliver from the socket both customers and art institutions. In contrast to industrial, standardized electricity production, art electricity is extracted individually in physical, performative processes into which the artist integrates the audience directly. For the period from November 30, 2012, to February 3, 2013, the branch is open to visitors; they can experience the daily business of the art electric company. In addition to consultation and meeting rooms, it houses the research and development department, the workshop, and the company cafeteria. A variety of electricity production actions will take place in public spaces.
