Sonntag Be-Shabbat is a collaborative project between the Israeli artists Adi Oz Ari and Michelle Medenblik, and the German artist Cornelia Renz.

Sonntag Be-Shabbat wants to exhibit artwork in private apartments in Tel-Aviv and Berlin every other month during weekends. The project aims to be a platform for exhibiting works of art that express a relationship between Israeli and German artists, whether they are Israeli artists living in Berlin, German artists living in Israel, artists who feed off both cities and need to operate in both places, or Israeli and German artists dealing with the interaction between the two cities.

Sonntag Be-Shabbat is inspired by Sonntag (meaning Sunday), in which April Gertler and Adrian Schiesser, two Berlin based artists, collaborated in hosting other artists on the third weekend of every month. The event is open for public and participating in this type of event is considered as important as an official gallery exhibition.

Sonntag Be-Shabbat destines to create a local version of this type of events by importing the idea of repositioning art in the private sphere. This way of art display connects art and its designated place, while allowing an unmediated correspondence between artwork and its viewer, as well as between host and guests, enabling a dialogue between both cultures.
