The Cobra Museum challenges you to create something new out of old denim. Do you have old jeans lying around at home? Or a denim jacket you don’t wear anymore? Turn them into something new! Be inspired and guided by our professional museum docents and create, for example, a denim flower still life, a handy storage bag or a denim vase. The possibilities are endless!

Photographer and filmmaker Anton Corbijn presents photographs in MOØDe in which he explores the crossover between photography and the world of fashion. The exhibition contains around two hundred photographs, including the now iconic portraits Corbijn made of model Kate Moss, fashion designer Alexander McQueen and campaign photographs for major jeans brands Levi’s and G-Star.

Afterwards, we will make an exhibition of all the creations together in the museum. This exhibition will then be on display in the museum for another week. Of course, you can also choose to take your work home immediately and not leave it behind.

Still have old denim lying around at home? Take it with you!

On the occasion of the exhibition MOØDe, the Vrije Academie is giving two (dutch) lectures on the world of fashion through the lens of Anton Corbijn.

The role of photography in fashion culture.

Fashion is everywhere. At the exhibition MOØDe in the Cobra Museum for Modern Art in Amstelveen, you will discover the groundbreaking relationship between fashion and photography, through the lens of the renowned Anton Corbijn (1955). Want to know more about how Corbijn embraces the terms “mood” and “fashion” in the broadest sense?

The fashion and styling students of NL Mode Academy are very proud of the cooperation with the Cobra Museum and present their work to the public on February 28 at 14:30. They will do this through a real runway show in the exhibition Anton Corbijn – MOØDe.

The NL Mode Academy is a fashion and styling school with a lot of personal attention, based in Amstelveen. Both styling and design are covered during the course. Therefore, a runway show is the perfect opportunity to showcase their talent.

The students of NL Mode Academy have studied the work of leading photographer Anton Corbijn, whose work is currently on display at the Cobra Museum. In the exhibition MOØDe, Anton Corbijn presents photographs from his extensive oeuvre in which he explores the crossover between portrait photography and the world of fashion. In doing so, Corbijn embraces the terms “mood” and “fashion” in the broadest sense.

The students are currently putting the finishing touches on their Anton Corbijn – MOØDe inspired designs that will be shown on the ‘museum runway’ at the Cobra Museum on February 28. After a swinging runway show, some masterpieces will remain on display in the museum until the end of the exhibition.

I predominantly photograph personalities, but fashion is increasingly part of it. We all decide every morning what we will wear that day, even if it is just a hat or a black T-shirt. Fashion is not always spelled with a capital F. — Anton Corbijn

3. Select the Masterclass Fotografie door Harmen Meinsma.

During this master class, Harmen Meinsma will introduce you to the magical world of (portrait) photography. Together you will first view the exhibition Anton Corbijn MOØDe and he will take you along a selection of his favorite photographs.

Then you will learn about the different aspects and roles involved in making an intriguing portrait photo. During the master class, of course, you will also get to work yourself and assume the roles of the photographer, the stylist and, of course, the person being portrayed. You will be encouraged to find the superstar in yourself!


Harmen Meinsma grew up in a small village in Friesland where he lived with his grandmother. In his teens he got his first camera. Photography allowed him to capture unconventional beauty, celebrate it and in doing so, carve out a place in the world for himself and his friends.

Harmen is inspired by people who do not fit into a conventional mold. He photographs people whose expression of identity is not merely a preference, but for whom it is a neccesity to style themselves expressively. This celebration of the quirky, the unique and the flamboyant characterizes his visual language. “In my work, I shine the spotlight on the misfits and ‘paradijsvogels’ in this world and turn them into icons.”

Harmen Meinsma received his BA degree from the Willem de Kooning academy in 2017, specializing in photography. His work has been exhibited in New York during Photoville and at Kunsthal Rotterdam. In addition, his work has been published in FD Personal, NRC, Vogue Italia and Volkskrant Magazine. Harmen currently lives in Rotterdam.

Paul
 van Riel
Paul van Riel publiceert zijn eerste reis- en muziekreportages in 1968. Hij werkt op jonge leeftijd in New York als assistent fotograaf en leert daar het vak in de praktijk. Tussen 1974-1990 fotografeert hij diverse mode-reportages in Frankrijk, Italië, Hong Kong en Japan en runt hij een mode- en portretstudio. Tegelijkertijd reist hij in opdracht van bedrijfsleven en magazines (waaronder National Geographic) de wereld over. Vijftig jaar fotografeerde hij talloze jazz- en improvisatiemusici in binnen- en buitenland. Het Verre Oosten (en vooral Japan) heeft al vier decennia zijn speciale belangstelling, wat resulteerde in talloze tentoonstellingen in binnen- en buitenland. Van Museum Volkenkunde en SieboldHuis in Leiden, Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, tot Paris Photo en de Nikon Salon in Tokio èn het Cobra Museum.

Corbijn door de ogen van…Curated Tours
Elk Cobra Pakt Uit Weekend vinden speciale rondleidingen plaats gegeven door creatieven uit de wereld van de mode, muziek en fotografie. Telkens kiezen zij hun persoonlijke favorieten uit de tentoonstelling en laten ons met andere ogen naar het werk van Corbijn kijken.
