Integrating art into the working world and making the experience of diverse artistic forms of expression accessible at global business locations remains a fundamental and ongoing motivation of Munich Re. In our office buildings, we receive clients and guests from around the world. In representational rooms and employees’ offices, art accompanies the staff throughout their workday. Employees can borrow photographs, paintings, etchings, and sculptures from our art library for their individual workplaces.

Since the mid-1990s, the focus of the Munich Re Art Collection has been on international contemporary art. In addition to well-known and established artists,

more and more works of young artists are being added to the collection. Not only is Munich Re's interest in contemporary art evidenced by the ongoing acquisition of artworks, close collaboration with German and international artists on architectural installations continues to play a prominent role. This is impressively exemplified by the underground passageways between the individual office buildings and the wall installations in stairwells.

In addition to its commitment to collecting art, Munich Re has for many years been a member, among other organisations, of the Kulturkreis der deutschen Wirtschaft im BDI e.V. (Association of Arts and

Culture of the German Economy at the Federation of German Industries), with representatives on the Fine Arts Committee, the Working Group for Arts Sponsorship and the Working Group for Corporate Collecting. The mutual exchange on a variety of concepts and projects provides a fruitful platform for new impulses. It is the conviction of all corporations represented here that the link between art and the industry rests on mutual esteem and a respect for freedom in art.
