Home > Art and Culture > Exhibitions > KBr Photography Center

An area of 1,400 m2, with two exhibition rooms, an area for educational activities, a bookstore and a multi-purpose auditorium.

Our new KBr Photography Center in Barcelona, inaugurated last October, marks a before and after in our passion for this artistic discipline. On the one hand, it gives continuity to our exhibition programming, and on the other it gives us the chance to promote innovative initiatives so they can reach a bigger audience who we hope to captivate with this art form. As well as exhibitions, the KBr Center will offer educational programs, training for new talents, conferences, workshops, international photography awards, and much more.

The KBr Center is housed in one of the most iconic buildings of modern-day Barcelona: the MAPFRE Tower in the Olympic Marina. At the bottom of the tower, the exhibition center occupies the curved two-story projection between Avenida del Litoral and the seafront promenade. We look forward to welcoming you!
