Francesca von Habsburg

Founder of TBA21, London

Guest 2018
Master symposium

Francesca von Habsburg founded Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (TBA21) in 2002. Francesca has charged her foundation with exclusively addressing the urgent issues of our time, with a particular focus on the ocean. She believes that the arts help us feel what science enables us to understand. Francesca collaborates with numerous universities and conservation institutes through the TBA21–Academy and its explorer program entitled The Current, led by Academy Director Markus Reymann.
