Siemens supports German Art in China
Siemens supports the joint exhibition “Deutschland 8 - German Art in China” (September 19 - October 31, 2017) in Beijing. The exhibition brings together more than 50 artists, represented by about 300 works, among them Georg Baselitz, K.O. Götz, Katharina Grosse, Anselm Kiefer, Alicja Kwade, Sigmar Polke, Neo Rauch, Gerhard Richter, and Rosemarie Trockel. The main opening ceremony in the Imperial Ancestral Temple in Beijing will take place on September 17, 2017, with the presence of the German Foreign Minister, Sigmar Gabriel. The exhibition is jointly hosted by the Foundation for Art and Culture in Bonn and the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing.
Cedrik Neike, member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG, talks about the partnership, “Germany and China not only have strong economic ties, but are also involved in a close cultural exchange. Joint exhibitions such as this in Beijing send a clear message about the understanding and intercultural dialog between the two countries. Germany and China will promote exchanges and cooperation between museums, art galleries, libraries, concert houses and theaters, as well as in the digital media.”
On September 15, 2017, Siemens is inviting partners, students and employees to the Beijing Minsheng Art Museum, which is presenting works by Hilla and Bernd Becher, Andreas Gursky, Candida Höfer, Andreas Mühe, Thomas Ruff, Katharina Sieverding and Thomas Struth.
“We strive to embrace a creative work culture and nurture excellent emerging talents in digital age through creative activities like the art shows,” says Ma Qing, Executive Vice President and Head of Human Resources of Siemens Ltd., China.
“The Siemens Arts Program has been championing outstanding photographic art for many years. To a certain degree, the artists whose works will be seen at the Beijing Minsheng Art Museum as from September 19, define a whole generation of artists. For this reason, they have also played a key role in the Siemens Arts Program from an early stage,” adds Stephan Frucht, Artistic Director of the Siemens Arts Program, commenting on the exhibition.
Between 1990 and 2000, the Siemens Arts Program, in cooperation with the Bayerischen Staatsgemäldesammlungen (Bavarian State Painting Collections), commissioned the establishment of the Siemens Photography Collection. In 2003 the company handed over the Siemens Photography Collection to the Pinakothek der Moderne (Modern Art Museum) in Munich. The collection, comprising 860 monochrome and color works from 60 internationally renowned photographers, concentrated on conceptual, as well as factual and documentary photography. One major theme concerned photography in German-speaking regions, represented by works from Bernd and Hilla Becher, Andreas Gursky, and Thomas Struth.
