Deutsche Bank Celebrates Collaboration with the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation
Masterworks of Contemporary Art for the Collection
of the Guggenheim Museum

It was particularly the spectacular commissioned works that made the Deutsche Guggenheim so unique. Here was a place where some of the most important artists of the present day could take risks in formats and experiment in ways that would have been impossible to realize elsewhere. From James Rosenquist’s painting series Swimmer in the Economist to Gabriel Orozco’s installation Asterisms—each of the 18 works created between 1998 and 2012 on commission by the Deutsche Bank and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation was custom-tailored to the exhibition hall. Works arose here that resonated internationally.

For the celebration of the 15-year collaboration between Deutsche Bank and the Guggenheim Foundation, many of these important works are now moving to the permanent collection of the Guggenheim Museum. These include Hanne Darboven’s last major work, Hommage à Picasso (1995-2006), which covered the walls of the exhibition hall in a sea of numbers from floor to ceiling. Or the large-scale installations of Agathe Snow and Phoebe Washburn—works that offer impressive proof that promising young artists also had the possibility to carry out ambitious projects at the Deutsche Guggenheim. William Kentridge’s miniature theater Black Box/Chambre Noir (2005) will enter the New York collection, as will Gabriel Orozco’s poetic assemblages Sandstars and Astroturf Constellation, which were on view in his exhibition Asterisms (2012) in Berlin. These will be joined by photographic works by Jeff Wall and John Baldessari, paintings by Julie Mehretu, and 18 sculptures that Pawel Althamer produced in the context of his project Almech in the Deutsche Guggenheim exhibition space. Already in 2005, eight commissioned projects were given over to the museum: works by Jeff Koons, Gerhard Richter, James Rosenquist, Andreas Slominski, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Bill Viola, Lawrence Weiner, and Rachel Whiteread.  

Other commissioned works are entering the Deutsche Bank Collection: along with large-scale photographic works by John Baldessari, Gabriel Orozco, and Jeff Wall and the drawings to William Kentridge’s Black Box and Phoebe Washburn’s Regulated Fool’s Milk Meadow (2007), Julie Mehretu’s wall-sized painting Berliner Plätze (2008-09) and 21 of Pawel Althamer’s Almech sculptures will enter the corporate collection. Anish Kapoor’s Memory, probably the most spectacular commissioned work for Berlin, now finds its place in the Deutsche Bank Collection. The 24-ton object made from 154 steel plates can currently be seen in the first major Kapoor show in Australia, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney. Each of the commissioned works will continue to be accessible to the public—as loans in exhibitions or in the bank’s spaces. John Baldessari’s series Somewhere Between Almost Right but not Quite (with Orange), for instance, is installed in the lobby of the Deutsche Bank  at New York’s 60 Wall Street.

Since it was founded in 1997, the Deutsche Guggenheim has quickly developed into an important platform for innovative exhibitions. The exhibition hall, run jointly by Deutsche Bank and the Guggenheim Foundation, set standards in the international museum landscape. The cooperation between the two institutions is being continued beyond the conclusion of their 15-year collaboration  on a project basis. In Berlin the “Deutsche Bank KunstHalle” carries on the successful work of the Deutsche Guggenheim from April 2013 on—with a show of the work of Imran Qureshi, the “Artist of the Year” 2013. Along with the presentation of the current “Artist of the Year,” exhibitions will be shown in the KunstHalle of works from the Deutsche Bank Collection, conceived by external curators.  Currently being planned are cooperative projects with international partner museums and Berlin cultural institutions.
