Winter School: The Personal Manifesto with Tyas Leeuwerink

In 2021, we are coming back with a Winter School that focuses on developing a “personal manifesto”, and which will be instructed by Tyas Leeuwerink!

At the three-day Winter School at the Cobra Museum of Modern Art, you will work in an investigative manner, both individually and in groups, examining your own conviction and expressiveness within a personal manifesto and looking for the form that best lends itself to it. How do you relate to this time, place and society and how do you give shape and content to your thoughts? Together with our teacher Tyas Leeuwerink you will explore the creative experiment, and how to translate your own convictions into works of art.

By focusing on daring and experiment, we are working on a series of works, and a selection works by the sutdents/participants will be shown during the last day of the Winter School in our Cobra Studio.
