The stranger/the foreign/the unknown at Produzentengalerie 4h-art The Concept Art with strangers, art in the unknown, the foreign in art. How does each individual, how do artists deal with the unknown? Either voluntarily or involuntarily withdrawn from their social or a familiar environment, culture or landscape, the artist arrives in some foreign place meeting more or less drastic differences, the outcome of different viewpoints, either one’s own or those of others. Physically, perhaps also mentally uprooted or retaining inner anchor points, each individual has a choice between the alternatives of e.g. assimilation, resistance or enrichment. To what extent can a person derive in particular artistic inspiration from his/her environment. How and when does the view change regarding this alien, this stranger in foreign place, where the artist from afar is alienated by the unknown. What is lost by losing the familiar, what remains, which novelty impinges, supports or inhibits; is it credible, does it pose a risk or perhaps it becomes an enrichment, a novel perspective on the happening, the world, the new place, of the individual in particular? How, possibly in which combination, does that affect an individual artist? How do they express this through their art? Produzentengalerie 4h-art has been and is guided by the goal of creating space within which artists, male and female, from diverse cultural circles, with disparate cultural understandings - eg from the German-speaking countries, from South Tirol, Austria, Switzerland and Germany, from Europe, Africa and other continents - a space within the German-speaking world in which they can showcase their own artistic approaches. Since January 2006, 4h-art has presented has opened a brief window once a month, to be precise every 3rd Sunday of every month, between 2 pm and 6 pm - 4 hours of art in each and all of its multiplicities; from painting, graphics, objects, sculptures, collages, assemblies, over photography, photo collages, performance, video installations and more, through to moving pictures, films. A spectrum including readings, presentations, papers, concerts, musical improvisation. The 100th 4-hour show was presented April 2014, 8 years and 4 months after the concept came into being. Time to take stock: 88 solo exhibitions, 19 paired exhibitions, 13 group exhibitions. 106 artists, 56 men, 50 women, 22 nationalities, 65 based in Hannover, 28 from 21 locations in Germany, 13 from Europe (Italy, Poland, Portugal, Serbia, Spain, the Ukraine, Russia) and one each from Senegal and India. 4h-art is a producer gallery based since 2006 in Hannover, with the goal of creating space within which artists, male and female, from diverse cultural circles, with disparate cultural understandings - eg from the German-speaking countries, from Europe, Africa and other continents - a space within the German-speaking world in which they can showcase their own artistic approaches.

After 10 years and more than 120 exibitions 4h-art is transforming the concept towards project based calls for exhibition e.g. "bellowing stag 2015". The aim was to grasp the image of the "bellowing stag" in its environment from a intercultural and multi-genre perspective, to search for today’s equivalents and the "bellowing stags" of tomorrow and understand which context promotes affinities to it and its equivalents. 4h-art will exhibit painting, collage, fotography, assemblage and sculpture tumbling around the central theme "the stranger/the foreign/the unknown" with the aim to show that the boundary between unknown and familiar is fluctuating and disperses with time or even get turned over.
