The Association Friends of Frans Krajcberg is responsible for the management of the exhibition rooms and the line-up of Espace Frans Krajcberg, Contemporary Art Center for Art & Nature.


It strives to ensure that the call initiated by the artist resonates as far as possible, by gathering around his work all those wishing to commit to the service of LIFE, ART and the PLANET. ​


In 2002, Frans Krajcberg donated 25 works to the City of Paris. Monumental sculptures, bas-reliefs, paintings and photographs, emblematic of his work. The Association was commissioned by the City of Paris to manage this collection within Espace Frans Krajcberg.  ​


The Association has made a commitment to the City of Paris to promote the artist, his work and, according to his wishes, to continue his fight for the preservation of nature, particularly the Amazon rainforest and the people who inhabit it. ​


The Association Friends of Frans Krajcberg brings together personalities from the world of art and culture, sensitive to the artist's environmental engagement and who were, for the most part, among his close friends.
