Art Collection Deutsche Börse
30 June to 25 September 2022
Deutsche Börse AG, The Cube, Eschborn
The exhibition “New Works” presents recent acquisitions for the Art Collection Deutsche Börse from the past 24 months. It illustrates the way in which these new positions expand on the curatorial concept of the Collection, which currently comprises over 2,200 photographs by around 150 artists from 30 nations.
The displayed works of the ten newly added artists contain references to essential characteristics of the Art Collection. They reflect the represented spectrum of visual languages as well as its cross-generational focus. The young artists’ works enter into a dialogue with established positions from the history of photography. In-depth collecting is an important pillar of the curatorial concept: it means acquiring extensive bodies of works and series that provide profound insights into the respective artistic approach. Alongside the acquisition of new artistic positions, the body of works by artists already represented in the Collection is also expanded. Each new work enriches the Art Collection with a fresh perspective on its central theme, the “conditio humana,” while at the same connecting in with the existing work groups.
