Remember the Moment, 2016

furniture installation with video and sound

GermanEnglish

The works looks into what the national far-right movement LEGIDA in Leipzig claims the legacy of 'Revolution made in Saxony - 1525 - 1848 - 1918 - 1953 - 1989 - 2015'. The furnished room of a young woman is filled with video, sound and images reflecting the self-proclaimed 'rebellious' historical image of saxony - which is used to justify anti-refugee hate movements like in Heidenau or Clausnitz.

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. Nauman 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 the ’3rd. Herbstsalon’ at Maxim Gorki Theatre Berlin, ’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. Henrike Naumann lives and works in Berlin.
