The richly-illustrated publication presents 100 of the finest active corporate collections from all over the world, from different industries and with different artistic focal points - hand-selected by a high-profile advisory board. The ambitious project is supported by AXA ART insurance, Art Finance (Gazprombank Group) and Sotheby's. The book is edited by Friedrich Conzen (Managing Director, Werkladen Conzen Kunst Service, Duesseldorf), Max Hollein (Director, Schirn Kunsthalle, Frank- furt/Main) and Olaf Salié (Managing Director, Deutsche Standards, Cologne). Chief copy-editor is Gérard A. Goodrow (Free-lance author and curator, former Director Art Cologne).
"Global Corporate Collections" is the title of a new project announced by German publisher Deutsche Standards. The more than 700-page book was introduced at Art Basel Miami Beach in December 2014 and will be presented in print at Art Basel in June 2015: "With the kick-off in Miami we will start working with companies collecting art to prepare an extraordinary compendium without comparison", explains Deutsche Standards publisher Dr. Florian Langenscheidt.
