Deutsche Guggenheim - 15 Years of Passion - A Unique Cooperation

After it was founded in 1997, the Deutsche Guggenheim swiftly developed into an important platform for innovative art exhibitions. The tremendous success of the exhibition hall on Unter den Linden, founded jointly by Deutsche Bank and the Guggenheim Foundation, is reflected not only by the fact that more than two million people visited the 61 exhibitions shown there. The venue was unique in the global landscape and in the network of international Guggenheim museums. It was a relatively small but flexible forum that could be used to show an enormously wide spectrum of elaborate exhibitions and commissioned works. Artists could boldly present formats and experiments that would not have been possible in other museums.

This platform for extraordinary exhibition projects will continue after the partnership between Deutsche Bank and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation comes to an end. Starting in the spring of 2013, “Deutsche Bank KunstHalle” will pick up on the successful work of the Deutsche Guggenheim, with an even more global program. Internationalism, an openness to the out of the ordinary, challenging projects, and comprehensive mediation offers – the KunstHalle will build on the strengths that characterized the museum on Unter den Linden from the very beginning and will surely thrill viewers in the German capital.

With the exhibition hall, Deutsche Bank is strengthening its presence in Berlin. In the city and worldwide, the bank cooperates with various renowned partners, including important institutions, collectors, and curators. In addition to exhibitions from the Deutsche Bank Collection, the show devoted to the “Artist of the Year” is another focal point of the program. After Wangechi Mutu in 2010, Yto Barrada in 2011, and Roman Ondák in 2012, Deutsche Bank has named Imran Qureshi the “Artist of the Year” for 2013. The award honors an auspicious artist who addresses social issues in an individual way. Imran Qureshi is one of the most interesting protagonists of the Pakistani art scene. In this enchantingly beautiful miniature paintings and extensive installations, he addresses issues that move people around the world: violence and war, conflicts between cultures and religions, and the hope for freer and more peaceful coexistence.
The Deutsche Bank Collection is one of the world’s most important corporate art collections. In the KunstHalle, it will be even more accessible to a wide public and will be presented from new perspectives. For example, the Argentinean curator Victoria Noorthoorn, who directed the 11th Lyon Biennale and recently joined the Deutsche Bank Global Art Advisory Council, is organizing an exhibition of drawings. In the show, young international artists will show how vital and varied this medium is.

Another focus of “Deutsche Bank KunstHalle’s” program are new art landscapes and the phenomenon of a globalized society. The exhibition hall will present artistic positions from the new art centers in Asia, Afrcia, and South America that have not had a forum in Berlin or Europe thus far. Discoveries are guaranteed – for example, in a show dedicated to contemporary Indonesian artists.

“Deutsche Bank KunstHalle” is a declaration of Deutsche Bank’s commitment to Berlin and will play an active part in German capital’s art scene. A large exhibition project with the Neue Nationalgalerie is in the planning stage, and further strategic partnerships are in preparation. Berlin is one of the world’s most important production sites for current art, drawing more artists from all over the world than almost any other city. “Deutsche Bank KunstHalle” will also set an example in this respect, offering young talents a platform for their first institutional exhibitions in Berlin.
