Modern and contemporary art go hand in hand in the Cobra Museum.
In 1948, Cobra caused a revolution in the Netherlands; a breakthrough in modern art that still influences art to this day. The Cobra Museum of Modern Art in Amstelveen exists since 1995 and is the heritage of the Cobra movement. It keeps the ideas of the artists of the movement alive. That thought is much broader than the artwork and poetry that it initially produced. The Cobra artists had a working attitude that is relevant to this day. They looked for a connection between the people and art. By breaking down the walls between different art disciplines, they worked multidisciplinary. They spoke of the formation of society. They worked together as a group, inspired each other, and together generated more impact.
The museum is the place where in the spirit of Cobra, experimentation and expression in art are emphasized. The museum has a large collection of Cobra pieces and documentary material which is continuously extended, and with which a variety of presentations will be made. The museum is an international expert in the field of Cobra heritage. It examines and advises fellow international museums.
In the exhibition halls, the Cobra Museum presents its collection in varying compositions. It also has great temporary exhibitions like that of individual Cobra members, contemporaries, and of related contemporary artists working in the tradition of Cobra. At the Cobra Museum of Modern Art Cobra, modern and contemporary art go hand in hand.
