Becoming CoBrA. Beginnings of a European Art Movement at the Kunsthalle Mannheim
With the exhibition “Becoming CoBrA. Beginnings of a European Art Movement”, the Kunsthalle Mannheim takes a look at the origins of one of the most influential avant-garde groups in the 20th century, which date back to the 1930s. While the years from 1948 to 1951, during which CoBrA existed as a firmly defined group, have already been the subject of much discussion, the show focuses on the preceding, hitherto little-explored process of the artists’ collective’s emergence.
