In 1949 in Romania, Craiova one of the biggest electrical factory containing a plant for transformers of high voltage and locomotives was founded under the name of ElectroPutere, meaning electrical power. During the communist time, ElectroPutere is based on the industrialization concept that is combining the electrical power with human and social evolution.
Inspired by its name, its history and motivated by the cultural effects of post-industrialization, we lay the foundation of a contemporary art centre, called Club ElectroPutere.
In 2009 Club ElectroPutere starts its activity, initiating the curatorial research project Romanian Cultural Resolution, published in 2011 by Hatje Cantz and presented at the 54th edition of Venice Biennale, at the Palazzo Correr, The New Gallery of the Romanian Cultural Institute in Venice in the framework of the Romanian participation. Beginning with 2012 we focused on contemporary art research and developed in 2014 the Mobile Biennale project.
Driven by certain aspects of the local cultural context Adrian Bojenoiu opens in 2015 the gallery. In the same professional manner the gallery functions as a space for research, production and display for contemporary art.
The galley is currently hosted in the former cultural club of the ElectroPutere factory.
