Cobra Museum of Modern Art Amstelveen

The Cobra Museum focuses on the art and ideas of the Cobra movement. Cobra is part of the canon of art history, but the ‘spirit’ of Cobra is still very much alive. An alternative culture, based on international solidarity and creativity, is perhaps more relevant than ever in the world we live in today. The Cobra Museum therefore actively links the collection and history of Cobra to contemporary artists, modern art movements and current affairs.



From 15 October 2021 this exhibition shows over 100 black and white photographs of about 60 artists. All of the works have the human body as the central theme and all belong to the collection of photographer and collector Pedro Slim (Beirut, Libanon, 1950).
