Fundació Joan MiróBerlinFrom its inauguration in November 1997 to its close in February 2013, the Deutsche Guggenheim has amply demonstrated the benefits of collaboration between a corporation and a nonprofit arts institution. With its many creative accomplishments, the museum transformed and enriched both Deutsche Bank and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. Foremost among the Deutsche Guggenheim’s successes was its pioneering commissions program, which enabled eighteen artists to create new projects that were first exhibited in Berlin. The Deutsche Guggenheim also offered a rich program of exhibitions: each year the museum mounted one show from Deutsche Bank’s extensive art collection and three organized by the Guggenheim, drawn from both the foundation’s collection and international loans. The Deutsche Guggenheim came to a close after fifteen years, and has reinvented itself as Deutsche Bank KunstHalle.
