For the fourth time Deutsche Bank partners the Art Cologne art fair. This year Deutsche Bank presents works by the sculptor Anish Kapoor. The exhibition in the VIP Lounge gives an outlook to the upcoming exhibition in Berlin. This autumn, Anish Kapoor will realize a commission for the Deutsche Guggenheim, an expansive installation entitled “Memory”. On display at the VIP lounge are 18 paper works from the Deutsche Bank Collection and the sculpture “Green to Purple” on loan from the Lisson Gallery in London. Turner prize-winner Anish Kapoor (born in India, lives in London since 1972) is known to a broader public predominantly thanks to his gigantic, reflective yet mysterious steel sculptures. In 1996, one of the most important sculptures by the Turner prize-winner, Turning the World Upside Down III, was purchased by Deutsche Bank and installed in the lobby of the Bank’s main building in London. Impressions and excerpt of the speech by Friedhelm Hütte, director of Deutsche Bank Art. Deutsche Bank VIP Lounge, Art Cologne 2008, April 15, 2008.
