Charitable organization, zeit-geist 19 is a research-led cultural enterprise that specializes in educational and cultural programs, lectures, workshops, public talks and debates, screenings, master-classes, and round tables with distinguished creative individuals, pioneers of contemporary art & culture, emerging talents, environmentalists, and entrepreneurs.
Each era has a unique spirit - a nature or climate that sets it apart from every other epoch. In German, this is known as the Zeitgeist, from the words Zeit - time and Geist - spirit. Certain thinkers have asserted that the true zeitgeist of an era cannot be known until that era has passed, others have declared that only artists and philosophers can adequately make sense of it.
Our aim is to gather representatives from various cultural segments under the umbrella of this philosophical concept, in order to explore the spirit of today.
The format of ZG19 events is dictated by the invitees and can range from casual talks, open conversations, roundtables, screenings, installations, discussions and freestyle performances, including dance, theatre, music or even cooking sessions, where in the middle of breakfast, or simply over a bottle of wine, guests would partake in unique experiences alongside the artist.
Creatives are given a carte blanche to create an experience that best encompasses what they would like to investigate and communicate. Each speaker presenting at the venue shares an interest for innovative aesthetic translation, and in their own way contributes to a contemporary kaleidoscope of poetic scenery.
Through the lens of ZEITGEIST 19 one will experience art, not only as a personal encounter but as a social interaction.
