Jean Cocteau: Metamorphosis. Expositie en boek

Jean Cocteau (1889 – 1963) is een kunstenaar die tot de verbeelding spreekt. Hij uitte zich in bijna alle artistieke media: poëzie, literatuur, beeldende kunst, vormgeving, theater en zijn favoriete medium: film.

Meer nog dan om zijn werk was Cocteau bekend om zijn opmerkelijke leven. Hij omgaf zich met beroemdheden als Sergei Diaghilev, Edith Piaf, Pablo Picasso en Coco Chanel, en raakte geregeld in opspraak vanwege zijn homoseksualiteit en drugsgebruik.

Het oeuvre van Cocteau was een voorbode van de multidisciplinaire praktijken van ontwerpers en kunstenaars van nu. Jean Cocteau | Metamorphosis werpt licht op zijn voortdurende zelftransformatie en zijn zoektocht naar een eigen identiteit. In de hedendaagse maatschappij, waarin het emancipatiedebat weer hoogtij viert en waarin de persoonlijke beeld-en identiteitsvorming in hoge mate beïnvloedbaar is, zijn Cocteau’s leven en werk opnieuw actueel.

Zoals jonge mensen zich tegenwoordig digitaal een identiteit aanmeten, had Cocteau de gave om zichzelf via diverse media steeds met andere ogen te bezien en te laten zien. Jean Cocteau | Metamorphosis toont veel van die gezichten, in woord en in beeld.
