The Y Circus Magazine was founded in January 2020 in Barcelona by German editor, and culture journalist Eva Bolhoefer. Originally thought of as a satirical fashion magazine, Eva soon shifted the editorial focus to change makers and conscious creatives who address social and environmental topics within their work, business, or artistic practice. Whether photographers, architects, designers, authors, scientists, entrepreneurs or educators: The Y Circus features cultural thought leaders and creators from different backgrounds and with a big-picture approach.



The Y Circus Manifesto


We believe in art, creativity, and storytelling to raise awareness of our relationship with the natural world and with each other. Topics on cultural change are at the core of The Y Circus. 


We hold it with Albert Einstein, who said: “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” To create a better future, we first have to imagine it. 


We believe that everyone is creative by nature and that creativity is one of the most critical human resources to tackle our future. 


We believe in the creative economy to enable positive change and progress. According to the UNESCO, the creative sector is one of the world’s most rapidly growing economies, contributing 3% of the global GDP.


We believe that art is for everyone, and it’s everywhere around us. The Y Circus is inclusive and doesn’t take itself too seriously. 


We are curious about the relationship between art, science, society, economy, and emotion. We hold it with John Dewey’s Theory of Art which states that “the basis of art is the aesthetic experience present in every part of human life.”
