4hKUNST is an exhibition project initiated and organised by members of the Kuenstlerhaus in Dortmund. In the Laboratorium, a small exhibition space of the Kuenstlerhaus, various art actions will take place at four dates in 2013. The aim of 4hKUNST is tracing and introducing new positions in art, bringing together artists, to discuss and to dare the experiment.
The exchange about art and the networking of artists and institutions are as important as enjoying the experimental production process of art as well as an exhibition which is only open for four hours.

4hKUNST #1: "Zum Lachen in den inneren Keller" (Into the inner basement for laughing)

20 April, 20 – 24 h

Christine Schiewe (Dresden) and Georg Lisek (Leipzig)

Pictures are served.
Surfaces will be disturbed and cut.
Abysses are gaping.
And the core is sweet.


4hKUNST #2: "Vollhund”

18 May, 20 – 24 h

With Thekla Rickert (Berlin) and Dirk Pleyer (Dortmund)

The 1-Song-Band "Dog Stevens" is going to roam through Dortmund's public space and show their results in the Künstlerhaus.
What else is going to happen: a demonstration against keeping dogs on leads, crazy dogs will be saved from the pan, knitting of bobble hats [in German: poodle-hats], kneading of marzipan dog turds… we'll see…
