Art & Nature

How does the world of plants look through the eyes of Joseph Beuys, Giuseppe Penone and herman de vries? Find out in the exhibition Botanischer Wahnsinn. This exhibition revolves around the relationship between art and nature. In recent years, artists from all over the world and from extremely diverse backgrounds have shown a remarkable interest in plants and trees. The exhibition features various types of plants, from scientific, mystical plants and weeds to ideological and cleansing plants. It includes herbaria, photography, works on paper and installations by Gemma Anderson, Joseph Beuys, Sjoerd Buisman, Mel Chin, Mark Dion, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Lili Fischer, Pierre Huyghe, Candice Lin, Michael Landy, Ana Mendieta, Otobong Nkanga, Giuseppe Penone, P. Staff, Anaïs Tondeur, herman de vries and Lois Weinberger.


The exhibition Botanischer Wahnsinn is the first in a new series. In this series, the Kröller-Müller Museum – deliberately located ‘in the midst of nature’ by its founder Helene Kröller-Müller – seeks to address relevant themes in the field of nature and ecology and to renew our relationship with the environment.
