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.
Besides the in-house events ZEITGEIST 19 organizes pop-ups and off-time visits globally. Our aim is to raise awarness of the link between art and social transformation on international level, while reflecting on the artistic scene in an accessible way. We cooperate with several hubs, alternative spaces, and establishments, commited to the passion of driving positive social change. Our moving programme aims to serve as a catalyst for radically scaling solutions, while investigating art, culture and sustainability and building new audience worldwide.
ZEITGEIST 19 generates a digital and print content for various media publications in the form of written art reviews, recorded interviews and short videos. We strive to scale up our project, not only as a physical experience but as an international online information platform. While constantly undergoing a comprehensive research, we identify artistic practices that share our vision and raise awareness of current socio-enviromental challenges, corresponding to Climate Change, social inequality, education, cultural preservation, and innovation. The main mission of ZG19 is to deliver a simple message by the means of art, informing not only professionals in the field but also the general audience.
