The project “Globalization-Connections
-Time” which, was initiated by German Artist Yasemin Yilmaz, commenced on the leap day February 29th 2008. On that day 12 Artists from 6 Continents worked simultaneously in a period of 24 hours to discover to what extent individual artists are influenced by current events in the subject of their work, independent of their natural environment and how the conscious look into time leaves its mark on each work. Within four years a global exhibition, under the Patronage of UNESCO travelled in the countries of the artists who participated in the project with a Global Finissage Exhibition in the Kunsthalle Hanover in Germany on February 29th 2012. This day was the beginning of the new period, with new 12 Artists with 2 Artists per Continent again working on the same concept.
