Since 1997 the Deutsche Bank has been showing exhibitions of international modern and contemporary art in Berlin – initially in its exhibition hall at the corner of Unter den Linden and Charlottenstrasse and since autumn 2018, now under the name Palais Populaire, a little further to the east in the former Princesses’ Palace.
The rooms have been redesigned by the architects Kuehn Malvezzi not only to combine tradition and future but also to link these with local and global culture, recognising and fostering talent and creating access for all. The museum offers a wide-ranging programme bringing together the widest variety of aspects of contemporary culture under one roof. As well as exhibitions of Fine Art from the Deutsche Bank collection and from international co-operation partners, these also include literature, music, sport, performance and dance. The Palais Populaire sees itself as a globally-networked forum for everyone whose ideas of culture are interdisciplinary and who wishes to create openness for new positions in the global art scene.
