Deutsche Bank ARTSUMMER’07

Deutsche Bank will be participating in this year’s summer of art with its own sponsor’s program. Under the title “Deutsche Bank ARTSUMMER’07”, it will be contributing to key events in Venice, Berlin, Kassel and Münster. Works by the artist Isa Genzken for the German Pavilion at the Venice Biennale as well as her urban exhibition for “skulptur projekte münster” represent focal points of these activities.

During the “documenta 12” in Kassel, the “Deutsche Bank Art Lounge” in the charitably-run “Lutherkirchturm” will be offering guests relaxation and information on Deutsche Bank’s cultural activities. In Berlin, Deutsche Bank will be supporting two exhibitions of American artists: The Brice Marden – Retrospective in “Hamburger Bahnhof” will be presenting his work, influenced by minimalism and calligraphy. And Phoebe Washburn will be posing topical questions of an ecological nature with her recycling installations in the Deutsche Guggenheim, thus making an original contribution to the discourse on sculpture in the art scene.

Deutsche Bank is thus making an important contribution to this summer’s large European art events, which are entirely focussed on contemporary art, just like the bank’s art program.
