Triangular Stories, 2012 by Henrike Naumann

Sneak Preview, Part I:

Directors Lounge at the Contemporary Art Ruhr,
Media Art Fair, May 29 – 31, 2015

Among the artists and filmmakers that we will present at the C.A.R. is Henrike Naumann with Triangular Stories and her installation Thug Life.

Thug Life
VHS Installation, Photography, 2015 at the Directors Lounge Booth

In 1996, the american rapper Tupac ,2pac‘ Amaru Shakur was shot in Las Vegas. He died at the age of 25. There are many conspiracy theories around his killing, as people cannot believe the early death of such a great artist. The work Thug Life collects evidence of the fact that he was not killed, but left his gangsta lifestyle in America to start a new life in Marrakech.

Photography: Nadia Mounier
2pac: Nourdine Qachbane
King: Ayoub Chazi

Triangular Stories, 2012 by Henrike Naumann will be shown as part of the Directors Lounge program (C.A.R. Video Lounge/auditorium)                               

1992. Both home videos have the same date. Both videos reveal intimate things from the life of three teenagers. While few of them can‘t wait to take Ecstasy for the first time at the Amnesia, the world of the others ends behind Jena‘s tower blocks. The artist Henrike Naumann (born 1984) is from Zwickau, where the Nationalsocialist Underground (NSU) lived in bourgeoise underground and spanned their neonazi extremist murderers. This video work is a very personal approach to dealing with the fascist tendencies in her old home are as well as with the hedonistic self-optimizing drive of her generation. The obsolete medium VHS (Video Home System) in its loss becomes a mirror for that generation.

Henrike Naumann is a video and installation artist. Born 1984 in Zwickau, former GDR, she experienced the blossoming of the right-wing scene in the 90s. Her first video installation Triangular Stories (2012) focussed on the the origins of the terrorist group National Socialist Underground (NSU). Her work orbits around the aesthetics of political concepts and youth culture.

Erdal Inci “Hieropolis Amphitheatre” looped installation, 1,4s 2013

From Berlin straight out to the Ruhr, home to Germany’s concentrated multi-millions and “contemporary art ruhr,” a concentrated display of all that is here and now (and beyond) in the world of media art. C.A.R. spreads its considerable wings regularly, reaching a global tally of urban art-zones, but invites to its home turf in this bi-annual gathering of innovative thinkers. Directors Lounge has become a regular-as-clockwork contributor to the more daring summer fair, exporting its international imports and making the trip in person to see visitors through its specially curated mélange of onscreen marvels. The flicks selected join of a temporary world of razor-sharp installations, performance, photography and more, fodder for the wide-awake mind. With contributions from DL partner Cross Art (Zurich-Berlin) and more, a feast of film awaits at World Heritage Site Zollverein in Essen. Directors Lounge cordially invites you to electrify your senses.

DIRECTORS LOUNGE DRIVES C.A.R.

Directors Lounge is, as most by now know, a motor that is always running, transporting off-centre art of various descriptions to various destinations. Continuing this aesthetic assault, DL is revving up to leave its parking space in Berlin this week to head out to the megalopolis Rhine-Ruhr. At C.A.R. (otherwise known as “contemporary art ruhr”), DL will be presenting a cache of buffed efforts, arresting works fuelled with visual and aural alchemy, some of which will be in the form of fitting film excursions highlighting the artistic process, taken from the 9th Berlin International Directors Lounge earlier this year. The brakes are off, and there is no rear-view mirror.

All of this will unfold on the 1st floor (above ground floor), stand A12, next to both Kroatien Kreativ, which already unleashed some of its light-and-sound wizardry at DL9 in February, and partner Medienwerkstatt Berlin, another luminary force at the same event, our annual core occurence. There will be much to steer the senses. Even if you aren’t one of the 11 million+ living in the area, it is, after all, maybe nothing more than a highway away. And the Autobahn has no speed limit.

See you at C.A.R.!
