Works from the DekaBank collection

The DekaBank art collection consists of almost 1,400 works by around 500 artists. The Wertpapierhaus of the German savings banks started the collection in 2003 within the scope of its corporate social responsibility activities at its headquarters in Frankfurt am Main. After almost 15 years, it is now one of the most renowned corporate collections in Germany.The DekaBank collects various media, from paintings, photographs, sculptures and installations to videos. They reflect the current diversity of the forms of artistic expression in the 21st century. The focus is on works that address socially relevant subjects and inspire critical dialogues about the current definition of art.
The collection therefore features works by artists such as Isa Genzken, Liam Gillick, Thomas Bayrle, Taryn Simon, Jeroen de Rijke and Willem de Rooij, Wade Guyton, Nevin Aladag, Tobias Zielony, Lena Henke, Claus Richter – a broad spectrum of internationally recognised or up-and-coming artists that also includes young creatives and art school graduates.
All of these artists raise questions. They are artists whose views sometimes make people feel uncomfortable, artists who explore new directions and whose works highlight some unusual perspectives. The Stiftung Schloss Neuhardenberg foundation has invited the DekaBank to present some of these artists and a selection of their works in the Exhibition Hall.
