A Prefab Building for Berlin Palace
Deutsche Bank Donates Important Work by
Neo Rauch for Charity Auction



5,000 euros for the Berlin Palace: Neo Rauch’s oil sketch Plattenbau (Prefabricated Building) is one of the highest-priced items being sold at the charity auction being held by the auction house Lempertz in the Italian Embassy in Berlin. In the auction, a six-digit amount was collected for the reconstruction of the baroque façade of the palace. Rauch’s work from the Deutsche Bank Collection shows an ensemble of East German Plattenbauten (prefabricated slab buildings) between monochrome abstract forms – a typical motif in the celebrated painter’s oeuvre. In addition to this artwork, Deutsche Bank also donated an exclusive visit to the Villa Romana artist’s house in Florence and VIP tickets for the preview of two of the world’s most important art fairs, Frieze London and Frieze New York.

“Give Berlin back its face!” Under this slogan, the Berlin Palace Foundation is committed to rebuilding the palace in the center of Berlin, which was demolished in 1950. The reconstruction of the baroque façade is not being financed from tax money and 80 million euros will be needed in the not-so-distant future. The palace is to be inaugurated as the Humboldt Forum in September 2019, commemorating the 250th anniversary of Alexander von Humboldt’s birth. The new building, which will house a center for international culture, art, science, and education, is regarded as Germany’s most ambitious project at present.
