In the white cube, mainly regional artists show their work, while artists from Hanover’s twin cities are also regular exhibitors.

The rigorously designed building has an almost square exhibition area four meters high and boasting 340 square meters of space. The regional art scene has loved this white cube, bereft of any annoying windows, ever since it opened 50 years ago. The eight exhibitions a year are the work primarily of local artists and artists groups – selected by the Municipal Cultural Office. While standards vary, as a whole the shows are very ambitious: Often there are interesting thematic approaches or site-specific installations, such as that by Thomas Virnich, Professor of Sculpture at Braunschweig’s Academy of Art. Regularly, artists from Hanover’s twinned towns in Poland, Japan, France and Britain are invited to exhibit.
