Residency Bartaku

PhoEf is a research project exploring the essence, use and abuse of the photovoltaic effect - the conversion of light in electrical energy - in the realms of science, industry, technology and the arts. PhoEf emerged from a personal, transversal flight through the interconnected worlds behind and around photovoltaics: a technology based on A. E. Becquerel’s 1839 observation of the photovoltaic effect. PhoEf is embedded in a rich, multidisciplinary, historical context.
