Fondation Carmignac
Paris, France

The Fondation Carmignac was founded in 2000 by Edouard Carmignac, a French entrepreneur, CEO and Chairman of asset management company Carmignac. Today, it is structured around three main pillars which developed one after the other: The Carmignac Collection, the Carmignac Photojournalism Award and Villa Carmignac in Porquerolles.

The Carmignac Collection

The Foundation draws its roots from the Collection. Today it has more than 300 works from the 20th and 21st centuries. The Fondation takes great care to preserve and maintain this collection, which is entirely displayed in the management company’s offices. It is not visible on Porquerolles, even though some works can be presented there depending on the themes.

The Carmignac Photojournalism Award

In 2009, while media and photojournalism faced an unprecedented crisis, Edouard Carmignac created the Carmignac Photojournalism Award to support photographers in the field. Every year, it funds the production of an investigative photo reportage on human rights violations and geo-strategic issues in the world. The Fondation Carmignac provides the laureates with financial and human resources to carry out their project and produces both a monograph and a traveling exhibition, aiming to shed light on the crises and challenges which the contemporary world is facing.

Villa Carmignac in Porquerolles

Since 2018, Fondation Carmignac has been developing its cultural offering in a place open to the public. Villa Carmignac is a 2000-square-meter art space set within a 15-hectare estate, which welcomes visitors at the heart of a preserved site on the island of Porquerolles – itself a French national nature reserve. Along with the permanent site-specific artworks installed in the grounds, the Villa, directed by Charles Carmignac, hosts a temporary exhibition every year and a rich cultural programme.

    The German dramatist Heiner Müller observed that German history lies as if smothered by a rheumatism blanket: beneath there is warmth and stagnation, just enough to give the impression all is well, while the peripheries are freezing. Georg Kussmann’s photographs in FRG were created under this metaphoric blanket. Made in the Federal Republic of Germany over a single summer, they depict everyday scenes of life, work, and leisure (more…)
