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.
STRATA is an exhibition of CIRCLE1 Gallery in collaboration with the Petach Tikva Museum of Art in Israel, presenting the artists Yosef Joseph Yaakov Dadoune, Nezaket Ekici, Shahar Marcus and Robert Stieghorst, curated by Drorit Gur Arie
Stereo is the first joint exhibition of the siblings Saskia and Tilman Wendland, curated by Yael Bartana.
The exhibition title Stereo, with its sign of two intersecting and overlapping circles, proposes a genuine investigation of the literal parameter specified by the gallery’s name “CIRCLE1”. Stripped off its reference to Dante’s first Circle of Hell, where the virtuous heathens reside in Inferno after death, all that remains is the geometric form, the round shape with no beginning and no end.
In the gallery’s main space in our current show we are displaying the exhibition Freitag, der 13. | 13 – יום שישי ה by artists Yinon Avior, Alexandra Baumgartner, benandsebastian, Matti Isan Blind, Noa Gur, Ella Littwitz, Ronit Porat, J&K / Janne Schäfer and Kristine Agergaard, Johannes Vogl and Ulrich Vogl. Curated by Hannah Beck-Mannagetta

Karen Russo’s video work “Externsteine”, takes as its subject the rock formation in Germany which attracts neo-Pagans, new-Agers and neo-Nazis to seasonal celebrations, in which each cult relates Externsteine’s extraordinary landscape to their own version of ecological, spiritual and political mythology.
Doug Fishbone’s exhibition at Circle1 brings together two major recent works by the London-based conceptual artist, that extend his examination of consumer culture, mass media and the relativity of perception. These two works, Elmina (2010) and Hypno Project (2009), question the way information is processed and presented in the contemporary visual landscape, and both undermine the relationship between audience and content in different ways.
Daniel Landau will present in the upcoming exhibition in Circle1 the video “Open Skies” (2013). The video work presents a tent encampment of homeless people which is situated between Tel Aviv and one of its satellite towns, Ramat Gan. It is a central place, a main transport axis between intersections of different roads and skyscrapers populated with corporate ventures and the stock market. Continue reading →
In the next exhibition we will show the brilliantly made mockumentary “The Centrifuge Brain Project” by digital artist, designer and filmmaker Till Nowak (1980). Dr. Nick Laslowicz, a mad scientist from the “Institute for Centrifugal Research (ICR)” (a fake institution needles to say) recounts his “achievements in the realms of brain manipulation, excessive G-Force and prenatal simulations”.
Musical Diaries is an exhilarating work by Miloš Tomić (Serbia, 1976) a multimedia artist whose works span film, photography, collages and sculpture. It started off as intuitive daily musical therapy, improvising on various instruments and paying attention to sounds made by daily objects at home, on the street and slowly, everywhere he traveled.
