A programme to encourage the collection of contemporary photography

As part of its START TO COLLECT programme, fotofever develops various initiatives highlighting the specificities of the market & the collection of contemporary photography.

This program encourage both young and confirmed collectors to give their attention to the medium and therefore support contemporary artistic creation.


Collector’s Apartment

The veritable antechamber of the fair, the collector’s apartment has doubled in size this year to become a 200 square metre home interior showcasing a selection of artworks. 

fotofever has invited Roche Bobois and scenographer Elizabeth Leriche to design the 2017 version of the collector’s apartment.
