Prosperity artist Daan Samson has invited Halbe Zijlstra, State Secretary for Culture in the Netherlands, to jointly put together a herbarium. The artist and the liberal politician (VVD) suppose that the world of wild flora could serve as an inspiration for the way contemporary art functions within our society.

The excellence and the artist investigate biotopes in which concepts such as growth and succes are directly linked to terms such as 'natural compitition' and 'the individual urge to evolve'.
