ArtMag Globe Art Music & Performance in the Deutsche Bank Towers

Globe. For Frankfurt and the World is a temporary art space in the Deutsche Bank Towers. Globe accompanies the opening program of Deutsche Bank’s modernized Group Head Office through April 15 and presents itself just as internationally as the art in the Towers.

The main focus of Globe is on performance, film, video, and music. Each of the artists invited has planned three evenings together with numerous guests. The series opens with a three-day program by the art band Apparatjik, followed by the British musician Janine Rostron aka Planningtorock. In the weeks to come, Ei Arakawa, Cao Fei, Keren Cytter, Rabih Mroué and The Otolith Group will also make appearances.

The space on the ground floor of the Deutsche Bank Towers, created by Nikolaus Hirsch and Michel Müller, changes its character with each event. The spectrum ranges from café and video lounge to theater and club. Tobias Rehberger has created the design of the Live Safer Bar, while the legendary Robert Johnson Dance Club provides the right sound. Globe was curated by Daniel Birnbaum, Nikolaus Hirsch, Judith Hopf, and Willem de Rooij. Christine Peters is artistic director.
