Spirit of Cobra, a major exhibition exploring the roots and inspiration of the European avant-garde Cobra movement, on view November 8, 2013 through May 18, 2014. Spirit of Cobra highlights the unique meeting of young artists who came together from several European countries in the aftermath of World War II to create a living art, based on spontaneity, experimentation, socialist politics, and exuberant optimism.

After a period of renovations Kranenburgh opens its beautiful new building to the public on November 12th with the exhibition Wonder. Two days before the official opening I was at the museum for a sneak preview of the exhibition. It was amazing to see the work Portret of Mati from 1946 hang next to the Portrait of Victor (Mati & Constant's son) from that same year.

 ZATERDAG 19 OKTOBER | 16 UUR | MIJN DERDE LAND | FRANKENDAEL FOUNDATION, CLUB INTERBELLUM & WHITE RABBIT THEATER

"...Ik heb om aan dit noodlot te ontkomen,
Een derde land verzonnen in mijn hoofd,
Een land vertrouwd met leugens en fantomen..."

In de tentoonstelling Mijn Derde Land reizen we naar een land dat bestaat tussen verbeelding en werkelijkheid: een imaginaire bestemming als toevluchtsoord voor de hedendaagse mens. Vertrekpunt is het gedicht 'Contragewicht' van Gerrit Komrij.
