A brand new device
The Super Battery (Super Akku) is the latest device developed by the Institute of General Theory. The battery can be placed in any kind of exhibition situation. It is connected with up to six high-end industrial cables to all available power sockets in the gallery space. During the exhibition, the battery is charged with the electricity provided by the gallery for free. After the show, the artist can than take the battery back home to his studio and use the harvested energy as support for ongoing daily duties like powering a washing machine, a radiator during the cold months or just a desk light.
This device was developed and used for the first time at
