The Deutsche Bank Collection in the newly renovated Head Office in Frankfurt am Main has been rejuvenated and given a clearer international focus. Around 1,500 artworks by 100 artists from more than 40 countries invite the viewer to embark on a journey through the contemporary global art scene. Our ongoing commitment to art in the workplace at more than 900 Deutsche Bank locations worldwide was honoured by the 2010 Art & Work award.
The work of the Kenyan-born and New York-based artist Wangechi Mutu, selected in 2010 to be our first “Artist of the Year”, was the subject of an exhibition at the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin. With this new award, we promote aspiring young artists from around the world.
Via an exclusive partnership, Deutsche Bank has enjoyed close links with the Berliner Philharmoniker for many years. In 2010, the orchestra toured Australia for the first time and realized a Zukunft@BPhil project there. Zukunft@BPhil aims to open up new and creative experiences for children and young people and introduce them to classical music through workshops and dance projects. More than 18,000 children and young people have participated in the programme worldwide since 2002.
