Art, Culture & Sports

Why do we promote art, culture and sports?

Art, culture and sports bring people together, fill them with passion: Art works, inspires people to engage with the present and helps them develop creative ideas for the future. Culture inspires - across borders. It is always an encounter and an exchange. Sports connect people and motivate them to perform and show fairness.

Promoting art, culture and sports means helping to shape our society, to give it new impetus, and enabling people to have unforgettable experiences.

What contribution do we make?

Deutsche Bank has been involved in art, culture and sports for a long time, both nationally and internationally. The Art, Culture & Sports unit continually pushes forward these activities and devises programs that benefit the public as well as our customers and employees. In doing so, we want to live up to our corporate responsibility and promote our business activities at the same time.

Which projects do we support?

Under the motto “ArtWorks,” Deutsche Bank has offered employees, customers, and the general public access to contemporary art since 40 years. The heart of our art activities is the Deutsche Bank Collection, which today is one of the world’s most renowned corporate collections and whose works are on view in the bank’s office buildings as well as in international exhibitions. The „Artist of the Year“ award honors ermerging artists who have created an artistically, as well as socially relevant, oeuvre. In the sphere of culture, we support the Berliner Philharmoniker, Musikgymnasium Schloss Belvedere in Weimar, and the English Theatre in Frankfurt, among others. As National Sponsor of the German Sports Aid Foundation and as partner of Eintracht Frankfurt Deutsche Bank supports competitive and mass sports. With the German Equestrian Sport Academy, outstanding dressage talents are promoted.
