ZEPHYR is one of the very few public spaces for photography and related media in Germany. This allows us to create a program which is not only geared to the mercantilism of the art market but also presents thrilling though overseen tendencies in photography.  

ZEPHYR is funded by the Reiss-Engelhorn-Museen, the Curt-Engelhorn-Stiftung and the City of Mannheim. Since spring 2005 ZEPHYR offers a wide program of international photography and media in solo-, group- and theme based shows in its space or in the Reiss-Engelhorn-Museen. In fall 2010 ZEPHYR opened its new spaces in the "Museum Bassermann-House for Music and Arts".
