The Crespo Foundation
The Crespo Foundation is based in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, and was set up by the photographer, psychologist and philanthropist Ulrike Crespo (1950–2019). We support artists and arts institutions and carry out operational projects in the fields of art, education and social affairs.

ArtNature/NatureArt
We are going through a phase in which people’s relationship with nature is being experienced and defined in a new way. Both arts and sciences have a role of breaking new ground in the exploration of this theme, generating new ideas and highlighting new perspectives. Images and sounds, installations and environments can open up innovative perspectives about and in nature. Glenkeen Garden, a 30-hectare estate in Roaringwater Bay, designed by the Foundation’s founder and photographer Ulrike Crespo and her partner Michael Satke, is intended to be a platform for artists in dialogue with scientists to develop projects in the context of ArtNature/NatureArt.
