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.
Suggested donation: 5 – 10 Euros.
Noble Surface is an exhibition of CIRCLE1 Gallery in collaboration with Eigen+Art Lab, presenting the artists Amelie Grözinger and Alex Lebus.
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?”
Likewise Amelie Grözinger and Alex Lebus, two artists living in Berlin, question “reality” in their exhibition Noble Surface, which cannot be defined as such and manifests itself in the possibilities of different realities. Continue reading

The exhibition features 12 painters from Israel whose work is personal, emotional and somewhat restless. They are engaged in painting that tells a story, paintings that are humanistic in their philosophizing, and they are direct, sincere and simple. Continue reading
This one time performance evening featuring Israeli artists and Berlin residents Michel Platnic and Dan Allon, deals with world order of power, war and economic struggle. Having both stems in Israeli provenience, the artists know how violence, war and money have the means of becoming integrated within a routine, and therefore it is only natural they would feel intrigued, attracted and critical of its aesthetics. Both artists will simultaneously perform the two different works to provide a rounded glimpse to a sad, cruel and yet beautiful world.
Interference is an exhibition of CIRCLE1 Gallery in collaboration with the Petach Tikva Museum of Art in Israel, presenting the artists Vadim Zakharov, Guy Goldstein and Ariel Reichman, curated by Drorit Gur Arie.
Interference is a type of obstacle, an interruption of the usual order of things, a suspension and disruption of continuity. The featured works refer to various aspects of this notion: interruption of logic and orderly action, whether by narrative shifts, temporal deviations, or sound intervals.
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.
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.
Artists: Lizza May David, Sophia Domagala, Janine Eggert, Sophie Erlund, Frederik Foert, Stella Geppert, Ingo Gerken, Benjamin Greber, Stephen Kent, Ingo Mittelstaedt, Timo Nasseri, Agnieszka Szostek, Constantinos Taliotis, Benedikt Terwiel

Within the artistic process works emerge that seem not to fit into the cosmos of an artist‘s practice. In the eyes of the maker, they have not yet been defined as an art work, or were determined as a study. In order to take a view behind the curtain, artists have been invited to propose a work they have never shown before for various reasons. Some of the works were never accepted as finished because they failed, looked overdrawn or simply appeared not good enough. Others, however, seemed too personal or intimate to show. What do unaccomplished and withheld works tell about the personality of the artist, the mechanisms of self versus external judgements, and the definition of artworks in general? Continue reading
