Hello ZeitHeisters, We’d like to introduce you to our logo. It may seem a little odd to those unfamiliar with either Harry Potter or ancient legends so we thought we would explain it to you. Meet our mandrake. Part human, part plant the mandrake is at the goblin-troll end of the fairytale spectrum as opposed to mermaid-unicorn rainbow-sprinkled princesses. According to ancient legend when the mandrake root is dug up by human hands it releases a vicious scream, killing all who hear it. Now, aside from playing a starring role in grim magical folklore, the mandrake is very important to us at ZeitHeist. You see, we are obsessed with the NOW. And we will not be silenced. We are the uprooted mandrake screaming about what is happening all over the universe and responding with gutteral undulations of song, art, dance, photography, stories – anything – in order to create an cultural archive of history. We are ZeitHeist. Responding to current affairs, the spirit of the time, the zeitgeist – and taking over artistic control and providing a voice for everyone that wants one. Our heist on the zeit, if you like.
