Art in the Workplace
Deutsche Bank Wins the Art & Work Award

Deutsche Bank is a pioneer of "art in the workplace." Since the 1970s, high-caliber works in the corporate collection have been shown in more than 900 Deutsche Bank branches worldwide—in board rooms as well as in offices and conference rooms, hallways, and counter areas. Now, the bank has won an award for its consistent commitment to art: in the framework of the World Architecture Festival in Barcelona, it was given the Art & Work Award in the category "Most Outstanding Contribution to Art in the Workplace."

The jury, led by Jack Pringle, former president of the Royal Institute of British Architects, particularly stressed Deutsche Bank’s long-standing contribution "to the cultural development of our global society." In addition, it called special attention to the exhibition program of the Deutsche Guggenheim—a cooperation between a company and a cultural institution, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, that is unique worldwide. Deutsche Bank’s Artist of the Year award, initiated this year, also convinced the jury: "The activities are truly international."

Friedhelm Hütte, Global Head of Art, Deutsche Bank, expressed his thanks at the awards ceremony for the Art & Work Awards and declared: "Art works! At Deutsche Bank we have been opening up the world of contemporary art in our offices throughout the world for more than thirty years. We enable greater public access to art through our substantial collection, exhibitions, and joint projects with partners. We are delighted to be honored for this commitment today." The goal of the Art & Work Awards is to award companies that are committed to art at the work place in the long term. Since 1985, the prizes have been awarded every two years to firms active in Great Britain, including the Deutsche Bank branch there. To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the prize, it was awarded for the first time to international companies and art projects in working environments.
