esign online.

Ever since the unique joint venture between Deutsche Bank and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation began in Berlin in 1997, each exhibition at the Deutsche Guggenheim has been accompanied by its own special edition. In collaboration with artists such as Jeff Koons, Nam June Paik, Gerhard Richter, and Tom Sachs as well as designers and curators, a number of individual, limited-edition masterpieces have come about in this way.

Along with these exclusive editions, exhibition catalogues and other publications of the Deutsche Bank Collection as well as a wide selection of gifts and selected articles by international designers can be ordered online directly through the db artshop. Around 100 publications illustrate and document Deutsche Bank’s many art activities. A selection can be found under the menu section Books & Catalogues, including Robert Mapplethorpe and the Classical Tradition on the exhibition of the same name currently on show at the Deutsche Guggenheim.

In the db artshop, a wide array of articles from aprons to T-shirts is dedicated to the theme art and fashion, including more unusual designs. In 1998, during James Rosenquist’s exhibition The Swimmer in the Econo-mist, the Deutsche Guggenheim presented the fashion show Art and Paper on the Runway, staged and curated by the Berlin-based fashion designer Claudia Skoda (More here). More recently, the Japanese artist photographer Miwa Yanagi had a photographic piece printed on a roll of fabric 660 feet long: Midnight Awakening Dream is a dream turned material that leaves it up to the collector to decide whether to view the edition as “art by the yard” or to drape the fabric around the body, like a kimono.

The MuseumsShop presents a fresh selection four times a year in tandem with the exhibitions at the Deutsche Guggenheim. More than 5,000 articles present a rich portfolio of attractive gift ideas. The focus here is on the collaboration with young, innovative designers from all around the world whose product ideas have often been realized for the first time for the MuseumsShop. Presents from Schreibkunst (the art of writing) to einfach genial (simply genious) and the highly popular gift certificate for admission to the Deutsche Guggenheim can be found under the MuseumsShop.
