The Deutsche Bank Collection New York


Following the Second World War, Paris, once the center of Classic Modernism, was superseded by New York as the art capital of the world: more than anywhere else, traditional ideas of art, art production and reception were discussed vehemently here, discarded, and redefined. New York’s importance as the melting pot of influences both from the old and new worlds continues to prevail as before. This is also reflected in the collection of the Deutsche Bank New York, which forms the main theme of our current issue. +++ Thomas Girst has taken a tour of the 29 floors of the bank’s office building in Midtown Manhattan, in which post-war and contemporary European and American art are engaged in dialogue. +++ Lilly Wei has had a conversation with guest curator Holly Block on the current exhibition Dreamspaces in The Lobby Gallery of the bank. +++ Some of the young artists represented in the New York collection also show in Williamsburg's Pierogi Gallery, which is held in high esteem by artists, curators, and collectors alike: Harald Fricke on Pierogi's legendary flat files, which encompass works on paper by nearly 700 artists. +++ From the early works of Berenice Abbott to current positions in German photography, our image gallery traces the various paths through which photography emancipated itself as an independent art form on both sides of the Atlantic. +++ And, in an interview with Verena Lücken, Liz Christensen explains how the concept of art in the workplace has become a reality.
