Art in Private!
Hessian Firms Show Their Art Collections

On the weekend of June 20/21, 2009, on the occasion of Kunst privat! (Art in Private!), it will once again be time for 35 of Hessen’s firms and finance-affiliated institutions to open their doors to art lovers and present their collections. Deutsche Bank is one of the organizers of the event, which is taking place for the fifth time. This year will once again feature guided tours through the floors of the IBC-C, Deutsche Bank’s temporary headquarters in Frankfurt. Among the highlights is the first floor, which offers a panorama of young German art photography with works by Wolfgang Tillmans, Martin Liebscher, and Delia Keller. Along with prominent works by artists like Gerhard Richter, Georg Baselitz, and Joseph Beuys, the focus of the art installation is on young international artists. Works by Francis Alÿs, Takashi Murakami, and Kara Walker document that not only the world of finance has become increasingly global, but the art world as well. The tour also leads to the nearby IBC-B, where commissioned works such as Heiner Blum’s digital orientation system Wir und Wo (We and Where) or Olaf Metzel’s gigantic ceiling sculpture Cashflow demonstrate the many innovative paths art at the workplace takes today.

The Deutsche Bank Collection is considered to be the most important corporate collection of drawings and photographs after 1945; it counts among the largest corporate collections worldwide. As Friedhelm Hütte, Global Head Art at Deutsche Bank, says, "Contemporary art always gives rise to new ideas for forming our future; it inspires people. Artistic creativity opens up surprising new perspectives and can lead to innovative solutions. An important goal of our worldwide support of young artists is to make contemporary art’s potential accessible to a wider public. We reach people—not least through our participation in an initiative such as Kunst Privat!"
