What is Yes Naturally?

Yes Naturally is an exhibition in and around the GEM, Fotomuseum and the Gemeentemuseum De Haag. More than 80 artworks by national and international artists are on display. The question asked is: what is natural and who or what decides that? Do only people have a say? Or may bacteria, atmospheres, animals, plants, computers and things also take part in the discussion? Yes Naturally is organised by the foundation Niet Normaal in collaboration with the Gemeentemuseum.

How did the idea for Yes Naturally come about?

Yes Naturally is from the makers of Niet Normaal, the art exhibition that took place in 2009 and 2010 in the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam. Yes Naturally is a natural follow-up: central is an all-inclusive look at the world.

What makes Yes Naturally special? What can you see there?

Yes Naturally is no ordinary exhibition. We pull out all of the stops, from human safaris to tours, neighbourhood discussions and installations on the edge of ecology and art. We also go outdoors, beyond the walls of the museums to the museum gardens, the dune forest at the Catsheuvel and downtown Den Haag. Yes Naturally is not about doomsday thinking nor about wallowing in the nostalgia of the good old days. It projects an affirmative and urban vision. Existing systems are called into question and our western world perspective is held up to sharp scrutiny. The artistic production and internationally acclaimed artists put an important social issue on the agenda with new and refined elegance. Yes Naturally sets out to meet the future with humour, determination and relativity.

Are you all completely green now?

The best-behaved children in the class? Naturally Not! We also cannot do everything right, and we don’t intend to either. Green sauces? We can’t stand them. Yes Naturally isn’t only about nature. We’ve intentionally drawn a line through Yes Naturally in our logo. Not as a matter of design, but as a statement. We question the meaning of the romantic concept of ‘nature’. Because we see this concept as an obstacle to come up with meaningful solutions for a more ecological and socially just society.
