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.

Examining the dilemma of borders within the Iranian context, alongside its neighboring nations, the show raises questions about political identity as well as internal, interpersonal and international boundaries.
