Lenses That Capture Zeitgeists

Zeitgeist is a mood that defines an era, and for most of recorded history we have had texts to chronicle it. With the invention of the camera, everything changed. It has never been easier to connect with sentiments and circumstances – frozen in pixels.

KBr Photography Center, launched by the Fundación MAPFRE, is located in the vibrant surroundings of Barcelona's Port Olímpic. As you step into the 1,400 m2 space, you'll find 2 main spaces with the works of iconic photographers from past to present.

Delve into the world of Tina Modotti and explore her life and career intertwined with the Spanish Civil War. Journey through Catalonia as seen through the lens of Jules Ainaud from 1871 to 1872, an unappreciated pioneer whose work now gains recognition. Don't miss the current exhibition about Ilse Bing, a mid 20th-century German photographer known for her exceptional work.

Blend Artistic Expression with Cultural Learning

KBr is more than just an exhibition center, it also serves as an educational hub. Participate in its permanent educational program focused on teaching the language and artistic dimension of photography.

The center also offers a KBr Photo Award to contemporary photographers, investing in the future of this art form. Delight in a vibrant community dedicated to celebrating the art and history of photography.
