The Fototeca archives, promotes and exhibits the photographic heritage embodied by the collection.
The institution is home to an archive with a vast and valuable collection of documents; it is a museum with the widest and most valuable collection of Cuban photography known and it also functions as a gallery for temporary exhibitions.
The institution regularly holds conferences, courses and workshops – both practical and theoretical – on a national level but also sometimes with foreign guests. The Fototeca is responsible for promoting Cuban photography abroad while at the same time putting the Cuban public in contact with photography from other countries.
