Niet Normaal INT Foundation

Niet Normaal Foundation was founded in 2007 and aimed to create expanded visual art exhibitions on socially relevant themes for a broad audience. Founding director Ine Gevers had already organized I + the Other. Art and the Human Condition and accompanying book Beyond Ethics and Aesthetics. This 1994–97 project, which she realized along with chairwoman Hester Alberdingk Thijm, is known to be the first Dutch politically engaged exhibition and received widespread international praise and attention. The foundation was responsible for largescale triennial exhibitions such as: Niet Normaal · Difference on Display, 2009-2010; Yes Naturally · How art saves the World, 2013; Hacking Habitat · Art of Control, 2016; and ROBOT LOVE, 2018. Stichting Niet Normaal ceased to exist on December 20, 2019.

Niet Normaal INT Foundation was established on November 28, 2018 to support international ambitions. A more appropriate form of management—the Supervisory Board model—was chosen, with founder Ine Gevers as statutory director. The statutes describe how the foundation monitors the heritage of former Niet Normaal Foundation and its intentions to continue activities in the same spirit—with inclusion and accessibility as core values. Goal of the Niet Normaal INT Foundation: concept and development of experience-based exhibitions at the interface of design, art and technology, with the ambition to initiate social discussions, mix audience groups, and to contribute to a liveable world.
