How important are artistic works for companies? Which are the collecting and conveying concepts behind a corporate commitment to art? On 7 and 8 November 2015, 22 companies and institutions will reveal their attitude to art and make a statement on the co-operation of art and business by showcasing selected works.
Works of Young Talents
In 2015, “add art Hamburg” will take place for the third time. Last year, more than 1,500 locals visited companies to view art. Participants of the art show in early November include companies with objects of art already n their premises, and participants that decided to showcase works of young talents from the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg) on occasion of the show.
Visitors are offered a wide artistic spectrum. At Hapag Lloyd, guests will find historic ship models, posters and illustrations from the early days of the cruise and marine paintings. At the Hotel Grand Elysée, works by artists of the Hamburg Secession and North German realists are to be inspected. At the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce, works of painters and sculptors of the Free Academy of Arts will be exhibited. Thus, exhibits will often have a clear reference to the Hanseatic city.
A complete overview on participating companies and art exhibited is listed on the Website of “add art”. The art show is organised by newskontor GmbH, the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce, the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, and the Schipper Company.
