Deutsche Bank

Art at the Bank

Art builds. Art questions. Art transcends borders. Art works. With its art program Deutsche Bank is making a sustainable contribution to the development of society.

Creativity is a source of innovation and progress. That‘s why Deutsche Bank has been enabling access to contemporary art worldwide for forty years: with its substantial collection, in exhibitions, and through cooperations around the world.

The Deutsche Bank Collection presents itself more international and younger than ever before. Deutsche’s Group Head Office is the heart of its global art activities. This is illustrated by the works on display in the Towers. The selection of some 1,800 works on paper and photographs invites the viewer to embark a journey of discovery of global art, which continues at more than 600 Deutsche Bank locations.



The Deutsche Bank’s Berlin Head Office is a place for Contemporary Art – and not only thanks to the Deutsche Bank KunstHalle on the ground floor. Throughout all four floors, international photography and works by artists that have been presented between 1997 and 2012 in the formely here located Deutsche Guggenheim are on view, for instance Phoebe Washburn and Hanne Darboven. In addition, works ranging from the neo-expressive paintings by the “Neuen Wilden” to recent post-conceptual positions document Berlin’s history as one of the most vital art metropolises in the world.

Frankfurt Campus

The art at Deutsche Bank Campus in Frankfurt is another highlight of the collection. The local concept consistently pushes ahead the international at concept of the neighboring Twin Towers of the Bank. On seven levels, it shows art on seven, socially relevant themes – from nature und sustainability to art and utopia to globalization.

Frankfurt IBC-B


The so-called Deutsche Bank IBC is situated on Theodor-Heuss-Allee in Frankfurt, one of the city center’s main axes. The complex of buildings is not only the Head Office for private and business clients, but also harbors a very special art installment with numerous works created especially for the location by Olaf Metzel, Karin Sander, and Andreas Schulze as well as an orientation system conceived by Heiner Blum.

Frankfurt Towers

The heart of Deutsche Bank’s global art activities beats in the Bank’s Group Head Office. Each floor of the towers is devoted to one artist – around 100 international positions from more than 40 countries are on view.

Hong Kong


Deutsche Bank’s Hong Kong branch is located in the International Commerce Center, the booming city’s highest building. Under the overarching concept “Urban Utopia,” works by 40 artists from China, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore, and Hong Kong were selected for the ICC. With a mixture of contemporary and traditional media – ranging from computer animation to calligraphic drawing – they each convey their own individual perspective on a range of different worlds as well as the social and cultural changes faced at the beginning of the new millennium.

The reception of Deutsche Bank’s London Head Office in the city illustrates how important contemporary art is to the Bank.  Powerful works by Tony Cragg, Damien Hirst, and Anish Kapoor sit together with Keith Tyson’s painting series „12 Harmonics” and offer visitors an introduction to over 1,000 works which are displayed around the building by international artists.

Current art in combination with contemporary architecture—this often leads to rivalry over visual dominance. At Deutsche Bank Luxemburg, however, the two enter into a dialogue and join forces to create an impressive gesamtkunstwerk. For example, the light-filled central hall of the building, which was designed by Gottfried Böhm, provides the ideal location for A. R. Penck’s monumental nine-meter-high sculpture “Delphi heliotroph.”

For Milan, the Deutsche Bank Head Office in Italy, an art installment was conceived for the first time that transformed the long-standing “Art at the Workplace” concept into “Workplace Art.” Five artists created commissioned installations for the bank building in La Biccoca, once an important industrial quarter. “Immagini dell’Italia” is the motto of the art installment, which represents present-day Italy with works by younger generations far from any convention or cliché.

New York

The founding of the New York Collection began in 1979 with 300 works. Today there are around 3,000 works divided among the three New York bank buildings. The collection originally concentrated on the transatlantic dialogue between German and American art. Today, the focus is on young international artists who reflect on an era of rapidly progressing globalization while also documenting the richly multicultural New York art scene.

The Head Office of Deutsche Bank Australia, designed by Norman Foster, radiates openness and transparency. The art presentation here enters into a dialogue with this innovative architecture: photographs and installations by primarily Australian and New Zealandean artists answer to an atmosphere characterized by steel and glass. Selected young artists were commissioned to create site-specific works for the new building; thus, Nike Savvas’s Cascade arranges shimmering sky-blue sheets of aluminum into a dynamic composition that gushes like a waterfall down several floors.

Since early February 2012, the art installment in the Prime Towers in Zurich has constituted another highlight of the corporate collection. In the 400-foot-high building, the highest in the city, Deutsche Bank’s five floors stand entirely under the sign of contemporary Swiss art. Along with a fantastic view of mountains, sea, and city, a panorama of contemporary Swiss art can be seen ranging from modern classics like Max Bill to newcomers such as Fabian Marti.
