Born in Berlin in 1939, Franz Egon von Fürstenberg worked with designer Pierre Cardin as his assistant in Paris and then with photographer Alain de Ferron in Geneva, where met and married Adelina Cüberyan, his life-long partner. Over the years he collaborated with a number of artists and exhibition spaces all over the world and published his photographs on magazines and arts catalogues. Egon’s photographic archives testimony of an important memory as they contribute to understanding the origins of arts encounters and collaborations, and at the same time of developments of the last decades of contemporary art.
ART for The World was founded in 1996 inspired by article 27 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which proclaims creative activity as an essential part of people’s well-being: “Everyone has the right to freely participate in the cultural life of the community and to enjoy the arts.”. As a museum without walls, ART For The World is a collaborative effort with the participation of artists, international institutions and corporations from all corners of the globe sharing ideals and activities expanding and reaching beyond the traditional confines of art, in becoming more inclusive and accessible to a broader audience.
