Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin to Close, No Reason Announced
Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin, the contemporary art gallery opened as a collaborative effort between Deutsche Bank and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, will close its doors after 14 years and 57 exhibitions. Artists including Jeff Koons, William Kentridge, Jeff Wall, Bill Viola, Rachel Whiteread and Anish Kapoor were commissioned by the bank and foundation together to exhibit artwork in the space.
Deutsche Bank boasts a collection of more than 56,000 works of art, one of the largest corporate collections in the world. It announced that it will use the space “for intensified dialogue between the business and political worlds” when its gallery doors close in late 2012.
