Kbr Fundación MAPFRE

BCN's new Photography Center

In October 2020, MAPFRE, the big Madrid-based insurance company, opened two large rooms in its landmark seafront skyscraper in the Vila Olímpica, as new exhibition centre dedicated to photography.

KBr means potassium bromide, a salt used in the classic photo developing. The inaugural shows were dedicated to Bill Brandt and Paul Strand; future ones will be dedicated to the classics but also contemporary authors and photographers.
