Centre Pompidou

The Centre Pompidou, initiated in 1969 by President Georges Pompidou, functions as a multifunctional center for art and culture. Opened in 1977, it combines the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, a public library, a center for industrial creation and a research and creative center.

Designed by architects Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, the Centre Pompidou quickly became one of the most visited places in Paris and aims to make art and culture accessible to all and promote dialog between artists and the public. With over 120,000 works, it houses the most extensive collection of modern and contemporary art in Europe.

Aesence is an independent art and design publication dedicated to minimalist aesthetics. Founded out of a deep appreciation and fascination, Aesence aims to promote awareness and appreciation of minimalism in art and design.
