"Visionary Partner"
Guggenheim Foundation Honors Deutsche Bank



Within the framework of the Guggenheim International Gala Deutsche Bank was recently celebrated as a "visionary partner" of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. The close collaboration between the two institutions is unique worldwide. Their cooperation not only encompasses numerous exhibition projects, but also the Deutsche Guggenheim. The Berlin art venue, which was launched in 1997 as a joint venture between the two partners, shows four first rate exhibitions each year. "We are pleased to recognize Deutsche Bank, not only for its longstanding commitment to the Guggenheim Foundation, but also for its continuing support of the arts throughout the world," said Richard Armstrong, the director of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and Museum.

Guests at the event, which was held at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, not only could enjoy an exclusive preview of the Kandinsky retrospective with which the museum on Fifth Avenue is celebrating its 50th anniversary. In the Guggenheim's theater hall they could also experience Rafael Lozano-Hemmers new work Levels of Nothingness, whose realization was sponsored by Deutsche Bank. The interactive installation by the Mexican-Canadian multimedia artist, which was inspired by Kandinsky's play The Yellow Sound, transforms human voices into light of different colors. At the premiere of Levels of Nothingness Isabella Rossellini read texts on the subjects of perception and color. During the recitation, a computer transformed the sound of her voice into impulses that controlled a light organ. After the reading, visitors to the gala had the opportunity to take the microphone and illuminate the hall with the help of their voices.
