CIRCLE1 Gallery in collaboration with the Musrara School of Art and Society celebrates the current Exhibition “In The Place Where We Stand II” with live music played by the school’s graduates Adam Ben Nun, Wizard Ashdod and Dane Joe.
Special guests: The Musrara School’s founder and director Avi Sabag and the exhibition’s curator Yael Brandt
Both works in this event deal with close relationships. They place the protagonist in front of a subject, be it a partner, a family member or oneself.
The attempt is not necessarily to create an utopian ideal of functioning or “successful” relationship but rather to explore the questions arising from the different layers of these encounters.

When Liat meets Hilmi on a blustery autumn afternoon in New York City, she finds herself unwillingly drawn to him. Charismatic and handsome, Hilmi is a talented young artist from Palestine. Liat, an aspiring translation student, plans to return to her family in Israel the following summer. Their intimacy can only be temporary and yet their passionate fling deepens into love as Liat lets herself be enraptured by Hilmi.
Despite the freedom New York offers, Liat and Hilmi still harbor the Israeli-Palestinian conflict within themselves and it threatens to tear them apart. They are caught between their desire for each other and their duties to their families; between the possibility of creating a life together and alienation from their communities. As their time in the city comes to an end, the two must decide whether their love is worth shaking the foundations of their identities.
Tender and fiercely written, ALL THE RIVERS is a love story and a war story, a New York story and a Middle East story and an unflinching foray into the forces that bind us and divide us.
CIRCLE1 Gallery in collaboration with the Musrara School of Art and Society in Jerusalem, presenting the artists Doron Rosenblum, David Amuyal, Asaf Alboher, Moshe Stern, Nadav Ariel, Yael Horn Danino, Yael Shachar, Tamar Tzohar Harel, Or Tesema Avraham, Almog Gez, Tohar Lev Jacobson, Nikita Pavlov, curated by Yael Brandt
Acting in a political-social space, the artists are influenced by the implications of their Jewish heritage and Israeli nationality. They are marked and leave marks as they move. In this event, both artists will share their experiences – which are sometimes common and sometimes personal – of this movement in relation to the cultural and national collective.
They will present the feeling of following or resisting social norms and will react to it from the point of view of being women.

When asked in an interview about the construction of reality and how to deal with it, philosopher and physician Heinz von Foerster answered: “Where is reality? Can you show it to me?”
