The New Art in the Deutsche Bank Towers in Frankfurt

ArtMag issue 64

Younger and more international than ever before—this is how art presents itself in the newly modernized Deutsche Bank Towers in Frankfurt. With 1,500 works by 100 artists from 44 countries, the new presentation in the bank’s headquarters offers insight into the enormous variety in contemporary art worldwide. ArtMag invites readers on a journey of discovery through the towers—and to Globe. For Frankfurt and the World, the art and performance program with renowned participants celebrating the opening.

In their synthesis between sustainable architecture and overall aesthetic concept, the Deutsche Bank Towers are up to date in every respect—this also goes for the new presentation of the Deutsche Bank Collection. Friedhelm Hütte, Global Head of Art, Deutsche Bank, on the innovative art concept.

Nedko Solakov subverts collective truths with laconic humor. An entire floor in the Towers is dedicated to the drawings of the Bulgarian artist, who has also realized a special commissioned work there.

Mohamed Camara is widely regarded to be a prodigy of the African photography scene. A solo show at Tate Modern catapulted the autodidact into the spotlight of the international art scene. ArtMag introduces the youngest artist in the Towers.

Globe. For Frankfurt and the World, the event program celebrating the opening from March 2 through April 15, is every bit as international as the art in the Towers. Globe focuses on the moving disciplines in art—performance, film, video, and concerts.

Together with many guests, Apparatjik, Ei Arakawa, Cao Fei, Keren Cytter, Rabih Mroué, The Otolith Group, and Planningtorock will each organize three evenings in a project room on the ground floor of the Towers. Tobias Rehberger has created the design of the Live Safer Bar, while the legendary Robert Johnson Dance Club provides the right sound. Globe is curated by Daniel Birnbaum, Nikolaus Hirsch, Judith Hopf, and Willem de Rooij.

ArtMag introduces the project and performers. In addition: a-ha-keyboarder Magne Furuholmen on the absurd universe of Apparatjik and Keren Cytter on “Fear, Fun and Fire,” the motto of her program for Globe.
