During the guided tour individual works will be explained in more detail, but above all the curators and artists will tell about the unfamiliar challenges and the risk with which they have been confronted by the exhibition concept.
Saturday, January 14, 2017, 6:30 pm – Finissage with performance by Chryssa Tsampazi with Clara and Luise Andrees:
In her performance, “I Have Never Been This Honest”, Chryssa Tsampazi will place herself in the position of each individual artist, as well as the viewer’s point of view on the exhibition.
In doing so, she will also refer to the titles of the individual works. The titles do have a special significance within the exhibition, since they have not only made the artists face the challenge of finding a title for an art work that is not yet meant to be one, but also to find a title that refers to the story behind the object and the reason why the work has never been shown.

CIRCLE1is pleased to host a special duo – oboist Antje Thierbach & accordionist Susanne Stock, playing colorful program with works by F. Couperin, Sarah Nemtsov, Samir Odeh Tamimi, Tobias Schwencke and Andreas Staffel.
CIRCLE1 has invited two very different Berlin based artists – Anastasia Khoroshilova and Noga Shtainer, to exhibit their recent photographic works. The two artists first met during the preparation of the exhibition.
