This place has its own special light. You’re never alone here, never lost. Everything seems charged with energy. Kraftwerk means “energy supplier” or “power station”. This piece is the poetic description of a basic, straightforward reality: there is a strong dialectic between humanity and its environment. Mankind bears within it the principle of human culture, human memory and human future. The world must get back to life on a human scale. This piece is also the story of a return to the African continent after thirty years of exile.
