Hessian Companies Present Their Collections
weekend of art: On June 8 and 9, 2013, companies based in the German
state of Hesse are presenting their collections to the public. For the
ninth time, the Kunst privat! Initiative is offering insights into the diverse art activities and collecting philosophies of around 40 companies. Deutsche Bank is inviting people to come to its Frankfurt headquarters,
where works by some 100 artists from more than 40 countries are on
view. Ranging from photographs from India, Brazil, and South America to
conceptual works from Eastern Europe, the works in the Deutsche Bank
Towers give a concise overview of the current international art scene.
Among the participants in Kunst privat! are large companies such as Lufthansa and Deutsche Börse
with its renowned photo collection. This year, Deutsche Börse is
presenting works by young artists from the Rhine-Main region that the
company has sponsored in recent years. Small companies are also taking
part. In their transformer station, Sattler KunststoffWerke are showing works on the topic of “Animals and Spaces,” while the focus of Wallrich Asset Management AG’s current art presentation is on works by the Berlin painter Norbert Bisky.
