The Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia Tel Aviv has functioned as an official representative of the Republic of Slovenia in Israel since 1994. It provides consular services in Israel (and Palestinian territories) and promotes bilateral political, economic, and cultural ties between the two states.

Other representatives of the Republic of Slovenia in Israel include the consulates in Tel Aviv and Bethlehem.

Cultural cooperation

Cultural cooperation is based on the "Program of Educational, Scientific, Cultural, Youth and Sports Cooperation between the Government of Republic of Slovenia and the Government of the State of Israel for the years 2012–2014", which was based on the "Agreement on Cooperation in the Fields of Culture, Science and Education between the Government of the State of Israel and the Government of the Republic of Slovenia" signed in 1993. This legal basis enables a platform for regular cooperation and cultural exchange between cultural and educational institutions. The cultural ties between the two countries seem to be thriving, especially regarding the promotion of contemporary art production from Slovenia.


Visual arts, design, and architecture

Contemporary visual art production was presented by the Irwin collective: in 2010 at the The Eye of the State exhibition at the Israeli Centre for Digital Art in Holon and from September to December 2013 with the Corpse of Art, a mixed-media installation at the Other People’s Problems: Conflicts and Paradoxes exhibition at Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art.

The event was followed by the poetry reading in Tel Aviv where two further translators from Slovenian into Hebrew, Miriam Steiner Aviezer, Slovene-Israeli poet, and Dina Katan Ben-Zion were present.
