The Deutsche Guggenheim is one of several international museums sponsored by the non-profit organization founded by Solomon Guggenheim. The organization aims to foster and support modern art forms and their artists.
In 1997, the bottom floor area of the Deutsche Bank building situated in the Unter den Linden part of Berlin, was given over to the Guggenheim museum. Although the sandstone exterior of the building dates from 1920, the interior of the art museum has undergone extensive modernization. It is not a large museum, with approximately 500 square meters of space.
It is painted in neutral colors and specifically designed furniture is kept to a minimum. This is to allow the art works to be viewed without the distraction of the objects around it.
Many of the art pieces are commissioned by the Guggenheim foundation in collaboration with the Deutsche Bank. They give encouragement to up and coming contemporary artists. More famous artists such as Picasso and Warhol have also had their work displayed here.
Throughout the year, the Deutsche Guggenheim is home to different art exhibitions. Art works are often moved from one Guggenheim Institution to another. Specially commissioned pieces by various international artists regularly go on display.
The museum also has a coffee and museum shop.
