The Luma Foundation was established in 2004 by Maja Hoffmann in Zurich, Switzerland, to support artistic creation in the fields of visual arts, photography, publishing, documentary films, and multimedia. Acting as a production tool for the multiple initiatives launched by Maja Hoffmann, the Luma Foundation produces, supports, and funds artistic projects that aim to deepen the understanding of issues related to the environment, human rights, education, and culture through the lens of the artist.

The foundation’s headquarters and exhibition spaces in Zurich are part of the refurbished and expanded Löwenbräukunst art complex. Luma Westbau opened in 2013, presenting international projects, exhibitions and events commissioned and produced by the Luma Foundation. More info:

In 2013, Hoffmann launched Luma Arles an interdisciplinary creative campus on a former industrial site located in Arles, France. Both a place of production and experimentation for artists and the public, Luma Arles hosts think tanks, artists and writers residencies, a design studio focusing on the bio region and annual exhibitions of major artists, works by leading figures in contemporary creation, specific commissions, and in situ projects. Luma Arles includes a resource center designed by architect Frank Gehry; various industrial buildings rehabilitated by Selldorf Architects; and a public park designed by landscape architect Bas Smets. The site’s main building designed by Gehry opened in June 2021. More info:
