RoundAbout, CIRCLE1’s exhibition at Radial System V, as part of ID Festival Berlin, is a group exhibition presenting thirteen Berlin-based Israeli artists. The works chosen for this exhibition aim to provide a critical curatorial reflection on a relatively new phenomenon – the emergence of a major creative community of immigrant Israeli artists who now think of Berlin as their home.
Participating artists: Ofir Dor, Amir Fattal, Liav Gabay, Alona Harpaz, Olaf Kühnemann, Alon Levin, Aharon Ozery, Sharon Paz, Alona Rodeh, Keren Shalev, Noga Shtainer, Amir Yatziv and Sahar Zukerman
Guest curator: Rotem Ruff
