The video work Junks by the artistic duo Willem de Rooij (*1969) and Jeroen de Rijke (1970–2006) created in 1994, consists of six filmic portraits. The artists, who were living in Amsterdam at the time, used a Hi 8 camcorder, a video camera with integrated sound recording, to portray six anonymous persons. Their subjects, people at the edge of society, each received a beer in return for their participation, and they appear to concentrate on the camera with a lot of effort.

At the People and Plants exhibition you’ll find out why the plant world is not only literally vital to our survival, but also delightful in its sheer diversity and beauty. The architecture for the exhibition has been designed to grow like a flower into the three rooms, with its roots, leaves and blossoms. Within this setting, an array of cultural-historical records and artworks, scientific specimens, photographs and video installations vividly demonstrate just how much curiosity and affection we as human beings have for our plant-based environment – but also how reckless and destructive we have been towards it.
