www.enki100.net is an internet story telling project by Robert Bramkamp and Susanne Weirich that gives 100 individuals the chance to participatethrough the web: future labour market structures, 100 abilities. The sailing club of Wendisch-Rietz on lake Scharmützel and Enki, the Creator God, combine into an constantly evolving story.

The idea developed from the Sumerian myth of “Enki and the World Order”. Enki (played by Steffen Scheumann) works at the sailing club as part of a back-to-work programme for the unemployed. He resurrects and improves upon the myth and collaborates with the local partners who establish and prove their >Me< abilities while interacting and being supported by an international network.

As part of the Enki project, the film “The Boat God of the Water Sports Club” was co-produced with arte and premiered at the Duisburg Film week, 2005.
