The Adventure Has Begun
In October extreme climber Stefan Glowacz will talk about his “Coast to Coast” expedition, which is now en route to Greenland, with Andrea Thilo at the PalaisPopulaire. Glowacz and his team still have their biggest challenges ahead of them on Greenland. First, they traveled by electric car from Starnberg to the Scottish port of Mallaig. From there, they took the steel yacht Santa Maria to the Westman Islands near Iceland. As on his Antarctic expedition in 1999, Glowacz struggled with seasickness during the crossing. “Oceans are not a climber’s world,” he posted on Instagram. The next stop is the west coast of Greenland. On the world’s largest island, the team will first climb a 1,000-meter rock face. Then, by ski, sledge, and snow kite, the Deutsche Bank-sponsored exhibition will cross Greenland’s ice desert “by fair means,” in other words alone and under their own power.

A new platform for art, culture, and sports in the heart of the German capital
Berlin is one of the world’s most vibrant art cities. The perfect place for the PalaisPopulaire. On September 27, Deutsche Bank is opening an international forum for art, culture and sports in the heart of Berlin. At the PalaisPopulaire you can look forward to exhibitions from the Deutsche Bank Collection and important partner institutions around the globe as well as talks, readings, sports workshops, and digital experiences.
Historical building, minimalist architecture
The architectural office Kuehn + Malvezzi has transformed the interior of the historic Prinzessinnenpalais on Unter den Linden boulevard into an innovative stage for contemporary culture. Behind the rococo facades of the building, reconstructed in the 1960s, the architects exposed the original concrete structure and created open rooms with a clear, minimalistic formal language and state-of-the-art technology. The PalaisPopulaire connects and excites art and music lovers as well as everyone interested in sports. Look forward to seeing you there!
Go-ahead for the PalaisPopulaire: Our employees are moving in
The opening is just a few weeks away. The renovation work is almost finished, preparations for the opening are in full swing, and the PalaisPopulaire team is currently moving into its offices on the top floor, right next to the 150-square-meter “Atelier.” The latter will be used for the educational program as well as workshops, readings, and concerts and affords a view of the Humboldt Forum. With the move out of the old exhibition venue in Deutsche Bank’s headquarters at Unter den Linden 13/15, after twenty years a new chapter begins at the Palais Populaire. Not only does the new venue offer much more room for contemporary art (a total of 150 square meters) and provide permanent space for presentation of the Deutsche Bank Collection. Additionally, the art here will be linked in entirely novel ways with culture and sports. With its program the PalaisPopulaire will soon bring together players from diverse disciplines and visitors from across the globe. Be a part of it!
