Henrike Naumann was born in Zwickau in 1984. She lives and works in Berlin.

Naumann reflects on socio-political problems on the level of design and interiors and explores the friction between opposing political opinons in dealing with taste and personal everyday aesthetics. In her immersive installations, she arranges furniture and objects creating scenographic spaces into which she integrates video and sound works. Growing up in East Germany, Henrike Naumann experienced Neo-Nazis as a dominant youth culture in the 1990s. Her practice reflects the mechanisms of radicalization and their connection to personal experience.
