A DIGITAL EXHIBITION CURATED BY ANNIKA SOJA AND LENA MANGER
We are constantly surrounded by it, but can still never really grasp it: The zeitgeist floats as a formative instance above us – but finds its shape first and foremost with us and through us. It has not only influence over any expression of cultural progression, but also incorporates essentially the sense of life and the ‚spirit‘ of our present. In a world constantly changing in the course of time we dip in search of new forms and dynamics of our age not only into the present, but also divine the irruptive future. While the amount of side by side existing possibilities and liberties seems to be unlimited, everything is somehow bound together: music, fashion, design, art… – borders break down, flow into each other and shape our age. But what does the present mean to us? What influences the zeitgeist nowadays? And which cultural and creative output arises from this spirit, we all seem to be driven by subconsciously? Does the pursuit of something new automatically imply breaking with old traditions?
In addition to the first Issue of the 'zeitgeist' magazine which was released in summer 2018 this digital exhibition focuses on the question which impact zeitgeist has and will have on contemporary design in the future. A collection of works on the subject of ‚zeitgeist‘ are presented and the positions of the designer are captured in a short statement.
