Savour a unique slice of Berlin's art scene
Add a little art to the time-honoured German tradition of afternoon coffee and cake, and the result is one of Berlin's most unusual gallery events.
On the third Sunday of every month, the aptly named 'Sonntag' (Sunday), sees a private Berlin apartment temporarily transformed into an intimate exhibition space. And to ensure that the show is as much about social camaraderie as viewing, each artist's favourite dessert is served up alongside the artworks themselves.
Since its foundation in 2012, Sonntag has played host to an impressive array of contemporary art talent, including Simon Faithfull (who loves banana bread) and Sinta Werner (who favours cherry cake with peppermint flavoured cream).
The Kunst and Kuchen formula has even extended beyond Berlin, with acclaimed painter Jules de Balincourt putting in a Sonntag appearance in New York (below), and plans afoot to launch similar events in London.
While still very much an in-the-know gathering, Sonntag has to count as one of Berlin's most original (and endearing) exhibition concepts: a recipe for art appreciation that's as quirky as it's delicious.
