Untitled, 2013

Mixed media Installation

GermanEnglish

The work Untitled focusses on today's right-wing scene. The generation of '92 has grown up, has families and homesteads. Combat boots and bomber jackets are no longer proof of fascist tendencies. How does the scene appeal today? What about the seemingly moderate milieu, that helps right wing terrorism prosper? Based on Facebook research the installation forms a disturbing picture of the German's average living room.

Die Arbeit Unbetitelt beschäftigt sich mit der rechten Szene heute. Die Generation '92 ist erwachsen geworden, hat Familie und Eigenheim. Springerstiefel und Bomberjacke existieren nicht mehr als eindeutige Erkennungszeichen. Wie inszeniert sich die rechte Szene heute? Wie sieht das scheinbar gemäßigte Umfeld aus, in dem Rechsterrorismus wachsen und gedeihen kann? Basierend auf Facebook-Recherchen entsteht ein verstörendes Bild des deutschen Durchschnittwohnzimmers.

Henrike Naumann

Henrike Naumann was born 1984 in Zwickau (GDR). Growing up in Eastern Germany, Naumann experienced extreme-right ideology as a predominant youth culture in the 90s. Her work reflects on the history of the right-wing terrorism in Germany as well as on today‘s broad acceptance of racist ideas. She looks at the mechanisms of radicalization and how they are linked to personal experience and youth culture. Naumann explores the friction of contrary political opinion through the ambivalence of personal aesthetic taste. In her immersive installations she combines video and sound with scenographic spaces. In recent years she widened her focus to the global connectivity of youth cultures and the reversion of cultural othering. Notable exhibitions include solo shows at the Museum Abteiberg in Mönchengladbach and Galerie Wedding, Berlin, as well as participations at the Busan Biennale (2018), Riga Biennial (2018), Steirischer Herbst, Graz (2018), 4th Ghetto Biennale at Port-Au-Prince (2015), and the 3rd Herbstsalon at Maxim Gorki Theatre Berlin (2017).

Henrike Naumann lives and works in Berlin.
