Art spawns new ideas for shaping our future. It questions, inspires people, opens up new perspectives, and thus enables them to embrace unusual and innovative solutions. The bank’s involvement in art is a pillar of its “Art, Culture & Sports” division. The new global unit concentrates, cross-links and develops Deutsche Bank’s activities and strengthens the company’s cultural diversity.
In line with this motto “Art works” for more than 35 years Deutsche Bank offers employees, clients and the general public access to contemporary art – through its collection at the workplace, in international exhibitions, at the Deutsche Bank KunstHalle in Berlin, as well as through educational programmes. Deutsche Bank supports joint projects with museums, art fairs and other institutions to award and encourage emerging talents, which is best shown in the “Artist of the Year” award which provides a platform to contemporary artists. The magazine ArtMag provides insight into the international art scene and the bank’s role within it: online and in print. These extensive global activities – designed and accompanied by a team of experts – enable increasing numbers of people to engage with contemporary art.
