Los Carpinteros: On the road

As founder of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary foundation in Vienna, and daughter of the late Baron H.H. Thyssen-Bornemisza, Francesca von Habsburg is in a position to rub shoulders with artists. Having perused the local art scene in Cuba in 2005, she had the good fortune to discover Los Carpinteros, whose humour and interest in the
contradictory captured her attention and won her over. The artists have since ventured ever further.
