Cobra Summer School by Jonas Ohlsson

Three-day drawing Summerschool in which you learn to let your intuition go free and enhance your imagination in making art.

8, 9, 10 August, 11 to 4 pm at the Cobra Museum of Modern Art

This summer you can follow a very special workshop at the Cobra Museum by artist Jonas Ohlsson. Ohlsson is a draftsman, creates installations and objects, composes music, writes texts and acts as Blodfet & DJ Lonely. His art is as versatile as his artistic practice. Besides music, provocation and humor, important topics in his work are sex, drugs, politics, history and street culture. Ohlsson’s background in electronic music continues in his artistic process, where a major role has been set for intuition and free association.

In this three-day workshop, Ohlsson will give lectures a.o. about Jean Dubuffet, Outsider Art, Situationists International, CoBrA, Surrealism and Johan Huizinga’s theories about the playful element inside and outside culture. Then the participants will draw … draw ‘till they drop. First together on a giant sheet of paper while Ohlsson will spin the wheels of steel and drop inspirational sounds into the space. Then there is also space to draw individually. The workshop is open to everyone: with or without drawing experience!

The cost are € 50 incl. Drinks
