Francesca von Habsburg
London, Founder of TBA21
Francesca von Habsburg founded Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (TBA21) in 2002. Francesca has engaged her foundation to exclusively address the urgent issues of our time with a particular focus on the oceans. 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.
