My Global cultural experience
I was born in Kazakhstan, but at the age of 3 my family and I moved to Russia, Siberia. I was living there, in small town, where I graduated school, then university.
I got a Bachelor's degree in Cultural Studies, and now I study Visual Culture in Moscow.
I think there is great differences not only between national cultures but I have experienced to face the differences between cultures inside one country though it is large. I mean culture of capitals, big cities and culture of peripheral small towns and moreover countries. It is all about global and local, similar and unique, the point is the scale of comparison.
I do a comparative research about contemporary art and art theory. I am interested in the concept of Metamodernism that was formulated by Dutch scientists Vermeulen and van den Akker (2010).
And now my question is can we talk about Metamodernism as a general theory of art and culture? Will it be justified to use this concept in the context of Asian region?
