SAHA provides production support for the artist Müge Yılmaz’s latest work Goddess Theory commissioned for the opening of the renovated Museum Arnhem. Curated by Manon Bratt, the exhibition Best Before is on view between 13 May 2022 – 9 January 2023.
The show’s concept circles around nature, biodiversity, environment, and climate. As an artist who finds inspiration in themes such as human rights, our anthropogenic impact on the environment, ecofeminist ethics, and reproductive rights, Müge Yılmaz anticipates a futuristic village run by women who endure through their primitive knowledge of living with nature around the year of 4000 in her new installation.
