KBr is the new Photography Center with which Fundación MAPFRE begins a new stage in its intense dedication to artistic photography, one of its main areas of cultural activity since 2009.

With two exhibition areas, a bookstore, an area for educational activities and a multi-purpose auditorium, KBr becomes a national and international reference in the field of photography.

Upcoming exhibitions

Jules Ainaud photographed different towns in Catalonia between 1871 and 1872. This exhibition collects the interesting set of images resulting from this work.

We reconstruct the life and work of the revolutionary artist and photographer Tina Modotti, with special attention to her activity in Spain during the Civil War.

KBr today

At KBr things happen. Here we are developing a permanent educational program, focused more on training future generations in the understanding of the language of photography and its artistic dimension than on explaining a specific exhibition. We share knowledge about photography through meetings and conferences. 

All our activities aim to contribute to the dynamism and projection of Barcelona through an area – artistic photography – closely associated with the cultural excellence of contemporary Catalonia.
