FROM THE BOOK
"Here at the Group Head Office in Frankfurt, we sought to build on what already existed and tell the story of the more recent part of the collection. We focused on vibrant art scenes that have emerged worldwide in the new business and financial centers--each with their distinct form of expression. A collection like Deutsche Bank's cannot be viewed as a self-contained, homogeneous construct. Rather, it is akin to an imaginary museum. The ecological refurbishment of the Deutsche Bank Towers has supplied an opportunity to the art department which goes way beyond simple stocktaking: it has revealed new perspectives. It has allowed a similar process in the evolution of the art concept. The predominantly young artists, who have supplied the art for the Towers, are provocative, their art touches people, by entering a dialogue transcending cultural and historical differences."
