Henrike Naumann is visiting the HfG Karlsruhe with her talk MESSING WITH THE MUSEUM and a workshop.

Growing up in Eastern Germany, Henrike Naumann (born 1984 in Zwickau, GDR, lives and works in Berlin) 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 is interested in the mechanisms of radicalization and how they are linked to personal experience and youth culture. She likes to explore 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 ’The Museum of Trance’ at the 4th Ghetto Biennale in Port-au-Prince (Haiti), ‚Intercouture’ at the Musée d’Art Contemporain et Multimédias de l’Echangeur in Kinshasa (Democratic Republic of Congo) and ‚Aufbau Ost‘ at Galerie Wedding, Berlin.

Students of all fields can attend the workshop.
