Johannes Büttner, Jessica Mester

The book 2000 is Henrike Naumann’s first comprehensive publication and provides an insight into the exhibition and reception history of her work series 2000. In it, she examined the year 2000 in Germany, burrowed through the remains of Expo 2000 in Hanover, and devised her own version of a German Pavilion, in which the country was symbolically split apart again. Her installation was created in the Abteiberg Museum in Mönchengladbach in 2018, then went on tour, moving from the Busan Biennale in Korea to KOW Berlin, Kunstverein Hannover, and the Museum of Fine Arts (MdbK) in Leipzig. The catalogue is being published to coincide with the presentation of the 2019 art prize awarded by the Leipziger Volkszeitung at MdbK, where an accompanying exhibition will also run from December 13, 2019, to March 15, 2020.
