Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Olafur Eliasson, Jeff Koons, Zubin Metha, Daniel Barenboim
and Anna Netrebko have co-operated with BMW. The company has also commissioned

In 2011, the BMW Guggenheim
Lab, a global initiative of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, the
Guggenheim Museum and the BMW Group celebrated its world premiere in New York.

absolute creative freedom in all the cultural activities it is involved in for
