Cobra Museum (Amsterdam)


Museum of modern art

Cobra caused a revolution in the Netherlands; a breakthrough in modern art that continues to influence art theory and artistic expression to the present day.

The Cobra Museum of Modern Art Amstelveen ensures that the legacy of the international Cobra Movement remains in the public eye, and that the intellectual heritage of the Movement s artists is kept alive.

The Museum aspires to be the centre of expertise in this area; to be the place where the spirit of Cobra, artistic experimentation and expression are featured and celebrated.

The museum has at its core the Cobra collection, comprised of artworks and documentary material, from which diverse presentations are created. For example, Cobra-related exhibitions are produced about individual member-artists, Cobra-era peers and related movements. The exhibitions are regularly complemented with a range of cultural and educational activities that seek to broaden insights into the social and art historical relevance of the Movement.

The Cobra Movement stands for creative freedom and experimentation, passion and vitality, and social engagement. The Cobra Museum of Modern Art sees its mission as being equally-weighted towards showing contemporary art that embodies the core values and spirit of Cobra.

At the Cobra Museum of Modern Art, Cobra art, modern and contemporary art are harmoniously intertwined with one another.

During the Week for Accessibility in 2009 the museum won the “Accessibility Price” from among 39 museums in the Netherlands. Also the museum received the International Accessibility Symbol (ITS), which indicates the museum is accessible for everyone. - +31 (0)20 5475050
