'Joan Miro didn't afraid the death and silence even his footsteps echoed in it...Silence was rule and regulation when he was working. He plunged deep in the silence and I was the most of the times around him without  saying absolutely nothing..I' ve never been broken that rule and I was those days a little boy.

I tried and trusted..You know . I wanted to be close to him when he worked and I did so. I cut canvas, etc. but the fact remains that I was happy, my really will was to be there with him. My mother was his only one child. When he died I was 15 years old...' 
Joan Miro's inspiration developed through his largely rich imagination developed on basis of symbols and 'codes' connected directly with signs, issues, meanings, ideas.
Maternity, woman, nature, stars, organs, birds,ladders, insects inhabited the area of his mind. These were shaped the ' main line' , an important line between  codes , symbols and issues and so he started the exploring, the experimental process and the joy of  experiment.
The exhibition' Miro & CoBrA. The Joy of experiment' at The Cobra Museum of  Modern Art investigated exactly that joy of experiment and compared it with the CoBrA's group - movement dimension.
' The Joy of  Experiment shines a light on the versatility of Joan Miro's-1893-1983- artistic expression. Ranging from paintings to assemblies, sculptures, livres d' artiste and ceramics, the exhibited works display the boundlessness of his rich poetic universe..' accentuated the Cobra's Museum of Modern Art artistic director Katje Weitering.
' By creating links between Miro and CoBrA- movement- 1948-1951- the  
 exhibition offers insight into the artistic kinship that underlies both Miro's and Cobra group's art...'
The exhibition depicts more than 100 artworks by Miro who together with Picasso considered as the best surrealist artist from the 20th century and 60 works by the Cobra- group artists Karel Appel, Asger Jorn, Constant and Pierre Alechnsky.

' Miro & CoBrA' explores the link between Miro's unceasing search for ways to break through the conventions of painting and the post-war Cobra group. Although he was not part of this movement of experimental artists, they recognized a kindred spirit in the older Spanish master...' said the artistic director Katja Weitering.

...Miro was not in close contact with CoBrA. So it was not a question of mutual influence but rather of artistic kinship.By bringing together works by Miro and Cobra this kinship between two generations of innovative artists is explored for the first time...
