20 Years of Art Collection Deutsche Börse
22 November 2019 to 22 February 2020
Deutsche Börse AG, The Cube, Eschborn
As the anniversary year of the Art Collection Deutsche Börse is coming to a close, the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation is presenting its acquisitions for the Collection from 2018 and 2019. The works by 14 different artists offer an in-depth look at the Collection's development over the past year.
The Art Collection Deutsche Börse currently comprises more than 1,900 works by around 130 artists from 27 nations and is growing continuously. New artistic positions broaden the scope of the Collection, while additions to groups of work by artists already represented in the Art Collection provide further depth. The central theme remains the contemplation and exploration of the "condition humana", the conditions of human existence and of people's ways of adapting to their environment. The new pieces acquired over the last two years also deal intensively with forms of co-existence, different lifestyles, and the question of social identity.
Artists: Jana Bissdorf, Christian Borchert, Weronicka Gesicka, Harry Gruyaert, Pieter Hugo, Susan Meiselas, Gabriele and Helmut Nothhelfer, Anders Petersen, Hsu Pin Lee, Malte Sänger, Hayahisa Tomiyasu, Henry Wessel, Ulrich Wüst
