Mission Statement

The Helmut Newton Foundation was established by Helmut Newton himself at the end of 2003. It is a foundation registered according to Swiss law in Zurich, Switzerland.

The Helmut Newton Foundation is an international foundation dedicated to the promotion, preservation and presentation of the photographic works of Helmut and June Newton, who under the name of Alice Springs has also produced a significant body of portraiture photography since 1970.

At its inception, Helmut Newton endowed the Foundation with numerous original photographs that comprise a significant proportion of his artistic work.

In October 2003, the Helmut Newton Foundation entered into a formal agreement with the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation (Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz) that allows the Helmut Newton Foundation unlimited use of the ground and first floors of the former military casino in Berlin-Charlottenburg (Landwehrkasino) for exhibition purposes.

According to the wishes of Helmut Newton, the Foundation should not be a “dead museum,” but rather a “living institution.” Various aspects of Newton’s multifaceted, innovative and provocative works will be presented over a series of exhibitions. The works of other artists and photographers will also be presented in dialogue with Newton’s work.
