The publication presents the evolution and development of the opinions that led to the formation of the artistic group known as The Natural Ones (“Přirození”). The activities of the group’s members are documented and presented in the form of historical news reports, photographs, documents, authentic art works, interviews with the artists and other key figures, and texts by the author Jan Balabán. Biographical texts present the artists who founded the group (Daniel Balabán, Petr Pastrňák, Jiří Surůvka, Zdeněk Janošec Benda, Hana Puchová, Pavel Šmíd, Helena Šmídová), the group’s theoretician Jan Balabán and its curator Vladislav Holec. The publication also gives information about a wider group of artists and writers (Martin Cach, Martin Fryč, Milan Krupa, Zdeněk Kus, Elli Tiliu Motýlová, Rostislav Němčík, Radim Šupčík) who were in contact with the group, many of whom participated in some of its events – such as Jiří Surůvka’s cabaret “Return of the Master Entertainers”.
