Deutsche Bank Foundation Awards Students

Happy faces on the pupils of the Mariengymnasium in Essen: during the award ceremony for the Youth Art Prize, which is endowed by the Deutsche Bank Foundation, their contribution, titled Geschichtete Geschichte (Layered History), was awarded the first prize of 5,000 Euros. The work impressively illustrates the transformation the Ruhr industrial region has undergone: while the "old" natural resource coal still symbolizes energy and economy, far more is required to shape the future—namely the natural resource of spirit. The second prize of 2,000 Euros went to the Erich Kästner Gesamtschule in Duisburg, and the third prize of 1,000 Euros to the Evangelisches Kreuzgymnasium in Dresden.

The prize, made possible by the Deutsche Bank Foundation, was awarded for the ninth time this year. "We support the Youth Art Prize," says board member Michael Münch, "because it offers students interested in art an opportunity to become involved in artistic questioning and new forms of expression during their own personal creative exploration of a contemporary work. In doing so, the Deutsche Bank Foundation contributes to the creative potential of young people." Twenty schools from all over Germany were selected from a large number of applications to take part in the competition. The project Young People Interpret Art offers talented students the chance to prove their creative potential at the Museum Küppersmühle (MKM). A prominent jury that includes the painter Markus Lüpertz and ad agency head Coordt von Mannstein has evaluated the entries. An exhibition at the MKM presents the work of all twenty participants through February 7.

The MKM is also one of the twenty art museums of the Ruhr metropolitan area that have joined together under the title RuhrKunstMuseen (RKM) in preparation for the Cultural Capital of Europe year in 2010. Deutsche Bank will support this association with an art and education project that is unique in Germany: the Collection Tours. The bank’s initiative will make it possible for more than 23,000 children, youths, and adults to visit the RuhrKunstMuseen next year.
