Deutsche Bank

Anniversary in Luxembourg

April 2010 │ Luxembourg

With the show "40 Years of Presence, 40 Years of Deutsche Bank Luxembourg, 40 Artists of Deutsche Bank Collection", Deutsche Bank is celebrating the anniversary of its Luxembourg branch. The exhibition includes a selection of works by important international contemporary artists which convey an impression of the wide spectrum of the corporate collection.

In the reception hall of the Deutsche Bank building in Luxembourg, employees and visitors are welcomed by A.R. Penck's monumental sculpture “Delphi Heliotroph”. The nine-meter-high bronze was executed in 1992/93 as a commissioned work for the spacious room, which is crowned by a glass dome. Penck's colossal figure seems to symbolize the important role that art plays in the bank building. In the light-flooded hall, there are regular monographic exhibitions of artists from the Deutsche Bank Collection, including Per Kirkeby, Marie-Jo Lafontaine and Gerhard Richter. The current show commemorating the 40th anniversary of Deutsche Bank Luxembourg, however, presents a wide variety of artistic positions: Sylvie Fleury's colorful, high-gloss mushroom sculptures meet Anselm Kiefer's myth-laden works on paper; a Kara Walker cut-out silhouette encounters Neo Rauch's enigmatic painting “Das geht alles von ihrer Zeit ab”. Some of the works on view belong to a set of 600 artworks which Deutsch Bank is giving over to the Städel Museum in Frankfurt on permanent loan. The works will find a place in the extension of the Städel in 2011.
