Press

Welcome to the press page of Cobra Museum of Modern Art Amstelveen. Press material (press releases, press image overview) from the exhibitions can be found here. The press image overview shows which images are available and can be used royalty-free (unless otherwise indicated) during the exhibition, provided that the correct captions and copyrights are included. These photographs can only be used for editorial (and non-commercial) purposes, such as a review or promotion of the exhibition.

In the folders you will find high-resolution images and the caption document. Some images are temporarily exempt from copyright. This is stated in the caption document. You do, however, always have to use the correct and complete captions.

We remind you of your own responsibility when publishing images. You must provide the correct captions and have the correct rights to publish images. The Cobra Museum is never the owner of the image rights of the works of art themselves, and rarely of the portraits of the artists. These lie with the artist or with the heirs of the artist, or with the photographer in question. More information about this can be obtained from Pictoright.

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.

Humanity’s End as a New Beginning

From 20 March, the Cobra Museum will present the exhibition Humanity’s End as a New Beginning in collaboration with the Amstelveen publishing house Leporello. Thirty watercolours by Japanese-American artist Yuriko Fujita Yamaguchi, painted to accompany an extraordinary collection of myths from all over the world, are on display in the Voordrachtszaal. These old stories, compiled by professor emeritus Mineke Schipper from Amstelveen, each give their vision of what the end of the world might look like, but also of how this could lead to a new beginning.
