Hessian Companies Present Their Art Collections
||A weekend for art: on May 28 and 29, 2011 around 30 companies and institutes connected with the financial world from the German state of Hesse are inviting art enthusiasts to experience their collections, which are rarely accessible to the public. For the seventh time, the Kunst privat! (Art in Private!) initiative offers insights into the diverse art involvement and collection philosophy of companies, including Deutsche Bank. At the bank’s Frankfurt Group Head Office, visitors encounter young art from all continents. "We’re pleased to present the new art concept for our modernized corporate headquarters and thus the innovative potential of contemporary art to an even wider public," said Friedhelm Hütte, Global Head of Art, Deutsche Bank. "A new generation of international artists has moved into the Frankfurt Towers, providing unique insight into the art of the world."
Each floor of the Deutsche Bank Towers is devoted to an artist. In all, some 100 international artistic positions from more than 40 countries are on view. The art is divided up according to regions: while in Tower A the young avant-garde from Germany and Europe is presented, Tower B features artists from Asia, America, the Middle East and Africa. The Deutsche Bank Collection in Frankfurt invites visitors to engage in a dialogue with artists and their works and at the same time gives insight into different cultures around the globe.
