SKALAR is an immersive large-scale art installation created by light artist Christopher Bauder and musician Kangding Ray.

In January 2018, Christopher Bauder and Kangding Ray presented SKALAR for the first time at Kraftwerk Berlin. During the first week, SKALAR was introduced in collaboration with the CTM Festival, whose Turmoil title examined the state of music and sound practice in the face of a confusing and critical present. 
When the festival finished on the 4th of February, SKALAR kept running until the 25th of February and quickly escalated to the cultural highlight of the city. 50 000 visitors attended the Exhibition and sold-out Live Performances.
The industrial cathedral Kraftwerk Berlin hosted this massive light and sound sculpture within its monumental architecture. The gigantic audio-visual installation breathed in otherworldly life in the pitch-dark space, suspending the distractions of everyday life and fully immersing the audience into a fascinating experience.
During this time, SKALAR ran daily for four weeks as an exhibition cycle, inviting hundreds of visitors to the historic venue in the heart of Berlin. Berliners and city guests of all ages and backgrounds could walk around, sit or lay down on the floor, and stay for as long as they wanted without any time limitations. 
As a special highlight, Christopher Bauder and Kangding Ray also performed six exclusive SKALAR LIVE Performances. In these shows performed in real-time, the artists brought their choreographed light and electronic music to life in front of thousands of viewers and listeners.

Located at the centre of Berlin, the former heating station is a piece of Berlin’s industrial history. After the building stood abandoned since 1997, it was rescued by Dimitri Hegemann in 2006. 

​Today, this silenced Berlin power station is known as one of the most significant cultural spots in the city. The raw industrial architecture of this vibrant place with gigantic dimensions, hosts various large-scale art and cultural events all year long.
