MAMCO
Museum / Geneva

MAMCO / Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain opened in 1994 thanks to the perseverance of AMAM (Association pour un musée d’art moderne, now Amis du MAMCO) and the generosity of 8 patrons, who created the FONDATION MAMCO. Pooling together the support of its Founders and, later, its Co-founders, the foundation was the main source of funding and the sole governing body of the museum up until 2005, when it joined forces with the State and City of Geneva to create a public foundation, known as FONDAMCO.
