Kaduregel Sheffel capturers the Israeli culture through lower-league football.
During this weekend we have an exhibition of our photos and merchandise in Teder (Tel Aviv). In this exhibition we also present works of other independent artists.
Besides the exhibition we will screen our videos which we’ve made during our trips through Israel. This is our last exhibition before it moves to the Netherelands where we will be presenting at 25.11 during the TotalFootball festival, with the support of Israeli embassy in The Netherlands).
The exhibitions shows the real life in Israel, the culture, the differences and the similarities between the communities and promotes Israel the way it is and not the way it presented through the media.

To celebrate the launch of a new book on football photography, Teder are hosting a special football night, with exhibitions, FIFA and Championship Manager.
In the midst of ongoing turmoil that never seems any closer to a resolution, it can be tempting to assume that Israel is a nation so enveloped by cultural conflict that every interaction between Israelis and Arabs is colored by an underlying tension that prevents any sort of mutual understanding. But while political rigidity and cultural clashes dominate the headlines, there are outlets where both Israelis and Arabs can not only set aside their differences, but celebrate the diversity of their cultures.
One of these outlets is “Kaduregel-Shefel” which translates into “low football”. Kaduregel-Shefel is a project by Israeli Gad Salner, Vadim Tarasov and Doron Shahino. As photographer and lower-league football enthusiast, they capture with his camera what no one outside Israel believes is possible: engagement of the Israeli and Arab people for a common cause— football. From forgotten Arab villages of the north to dusty Jewish neighborhoods in the south, they visited places where the seemingly ever-present tension between cultures evaporated.
The exhibition, the talk and the short documentary videos puts more emphasis on the human, urban, and cultural landscapes of our divided and diverse society, and less on the pitch action itself.
