ENG
The Ljubljana city power station.

SLO
Ob stoletnici Mestne elektrarne ljubljanske je Tadej Brate zapisal:
“1. januarja 1898 je stolno mesto ljubljansko zažarelo v električni svetlobi. Začel se je čas elektrifikacije, uvajanje vsega novega in modernega. Brez elektrike si danes življenja pač ne moremo zamisliti. Izumitelji so razvili nove naprave, stroje in prometna sredstva, ki so razmere v obdobju elektrifikacije korenito spremenili.”
Nekoč revolucionarna tovarna pa je danes po zaslugi sinergije gospodarstva, dediščine in politike zažarela z novimi vsebinami.
Ljubljanska mestna elektrarna, veličasten tehnični spomenik, je eden redkih ohranjenih primerov industrijske arhitekture pri nas. Od leta 1898, ko se je začel proces njene gradnje, je preživela mnogo sprememb. Skladno z modernizacijo so jo posodabljali in razširjali vse do konca druge svetovne vojne, ko je zastarelo tehnologijo zamenjala toplarna na obrobju mesta.
Stavba je danes zaščitena kot kulturni, tehniški in zgodovinski spomenik in je v lasti Elektra Ljubljana, ki je stavbo ob stoletnici tudi temeljito prenovilo. Že v 80. in 90. so jo odkrili umetniki in začeli ta zanimiv prostor napolnjevati z različnimi umetniškimi vsebinami ter v njem izvajati performanse, čudovit volumen z lesenim stropom je privlačil številne filmarje in videaste. Med prvimi so bili Ema Kugler, Matjaž Berger in Enrique Vargas v okviru festivala Exodos, v elektrarni pa je v koncu devetdesetih kar dvakrat gostoval tudi mednarodni festival Mladi levi.
Druga prenova ljubljanske mestne elektrarne oziroma Stare mestne elektrarne – Elektro Ljubljana je bila delo Ministrstva za kulturo, tako kot leta 1998, vodil pa jo je arhitekt Matija Suhadolc. Dvorana, ki je bila slavnostno odprta 21. avgusta 2004 s festivalom Mladi levi, je odličen primer sodelovanja politike, gospodarstva, dediščine in kulture, saj so Ministrstvo za kulturo, Mestna občina Ljubljana in Elektro Ljubljana podpisali sporazum o brezplačnem najemu SMEEL za potrebe sodobnih uprizoritvenih umetnosti. Na javnem natečaju je zmagal zavod Bunker, ki SMEEL zdaj programsko upravlja. Del stavbe je osrednja dvorana z izredno lepim odrom, preddverje pa je ohranjeno kot muzejski del, kjer je še vedno viden del dimnika, turbine in nekatere merilne naprave elektrarne.

Tadej Brate wrote the following at the centenary of the Ljubljana city power station:
“On January 1st, 1898, the Slovene capital of Ljubljana shone with the electric light for the first time. This marked the beginning of the electrification era, of the implementation of everything new and modern. We can’t think of life without electricity today. Inventors developed new appliances, machines and modes of communication, which radically changed the conditions in the period of electrification.”
Once a revolutionary power plant today shines again with new elements, thanks to the synergy of economics, heritage and politics.
The Ljubljana city power station, a magnificent technical monument is one of the rare examples of industrial architecture, which is preserved in Slovenia. It has gone through numerous changes since 1898, when its construction began. It was modernized, upgraded and enlarged until the end of World War II, when the power station with its then obsolete technology, was replaced by a heating plant on the outskirts of the city.
Today, the building is a protected cultural, technical and historical monument. It is still owned by the company Elektro Ljubljana, which thoroughly renovated the structure on its centenary anniversary. Some artists “discovered” this interesting building during the 80′s and the 90′s and started to fill it with differing artistic components. Among the first artists to display their works at the Ljubljana Power Station were Ema Kugler, Matjaž Berger and Enrique Vargas, who used the power station as the venue for his performance through the medium of the Exodos Festival. The premises of the Ljubljana Power Station at the end of the 90′s, twice hosted the venue for the international performing arts festival Mladi levi.
The second renovation to the Ljubljana City Power Station or Old Power Station was commissioned by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia and supervised by the architect Matija Suhadolc, who also carried out the first renovation in 1998. Its hall, which was officially opened on August 21st, 2004, with the Mladi levi festival, is an excellent example of the co-operation between the fields of politics, economics, national heritage and culture. The Municipality of Ljubljana and The Ministry of Culture have reached an agreement with the company Elektro Ljubljana regarding the free rental of the building for the purposes of the performing arts. The artistic program is the responsibility of Bunker, which was chosen during a public tendering period. A certain section of the building is now the main hall, while a smaller section has been transformed into a museum, where visitors can still see a part of the chimney, turbines and some of the remaining, original instruments within the power station.
