It comes from somewhere and takes its course
somehow from within the underground. At least until it?s tapped. It then
rises and sometimes helps us to become nicely warm or even hot. We don?t
know its origin, the rumour says it comes from the east (Russia or so).
This appears to be dependent on the perspective. More crucial yet is its
energy. Even though it?s invisible, this energy never gets lost, it just
transforms itself into something else. And in the very moment of transformation
it reveals as what it is by then. A moment of a powerful potential that
cannot be fixed in advance to a particular format, medium or time-space.
fernwärme is not an utopian project which strives for the realization
of ideas. Instead, fernwärme shows up to be the product of a coincidence
between energy and its use. Nothing more and nothing less than a concretely
formed moment, which is defined by the elements it consists of. And since
this fernwärme does not exist in an original nor a pure state, it
has no territory: It?s always already foreign, it?s always already ausland.
So why should it take place somehere else?
The actual crew of users of this fernwärme – The making of
performing arts encompasses: Antonia Baehr, Susanne Berggren, Barbara
Loreck, Ulrike Melzwig, Petra Sabisch, Rut Waldeyer und Stefanie Weismann,
and is looking forward to be parasited by other users. (Petra Sabisch
