This special exhibition celebrates the 70th anniversary of the Cobra movement, founded in Paris. Focusing on complete spiritual and artistic freedom, the movement can now be seen as a 'multi-headed snake' featuring artists and poets from various backgrounds, with very different points of view on the purpose and meaning of Cobra. Explore the sometimes diametrically opposed perspectives of some of the movement's most important figures in this exhibition.
Take a walk through history as seen through the eyes of politically-engaged photographer Kati Horna (Hungary, 1912 – Mexico, 2000). Horna tracked several major historic events in the 20th century, from her eye-opening works on the fall of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, to the outbreak of the First World War, the Second World War, and the Spanish Civil War.
Snake your way over to the Cobra Museum and explore the CoBrA movement - one of the major art movements of the 20th century. Surround yourself with wacky, colorful modern and contemporary art and get inspired by some excellent changing exhibitions.
The name CoBrA was coined in 1948 by Christian Dotremont, who labeled this European avant-garde art movement after the initials of its members' home cities: Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam.
This highly expressionist movement was only active between 1948 and 1951, and inspired by the art of children. Explore some of its best works here, plus key works by artists of the Vrij Beelden, CoBrA, and Creatie movements.
Browse your way through two rooms, packed with colorful works, grouped by nationality from Dutch to Danish and Belgian.
You'll see wacky animal imagery - common in CoBrA painting - plus ceramics and sculptures. It's an arty assault to the senses!
