Kunst Halle (Deutsche Guggenheim)
The Deutsche Bank owns the largest corporate art collection in the world, and it runs a gallery space, now called KunstHalle, on the ground floor of the bank's building on Unter den Linden.
Until 2013 the gallery space housed the museum in collaboration with the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. The Deutsche Guggenheim opened its doors the same year as the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, but even though the bank's building is located in the city's most important and elegant avenue, the Berlin version was a small and very modest space in comparison.
The sandstone building was built in 1920, and the 510m2 gallery space was designed by Architect Richard Gluckmann in 1997.
Besides showing part of over 56,000 pieces that the Deutsche Bank owns including works from Camille Pissarro, Paul Klee and Piet Mondrian, the KunstHalle offers exhibitions with commissioned works by international artists. It gives space for new artists and organizes the "Artist of the Year" award with a solo exhibition from each year's winner.
"I go there for two reasons: the art exhibition and sometimes I just go there to people-watch at the cafe. Plus the museum shop has interesting items." -Astrid Paramita, Developer/Designer & Founder.
