“Culture 2.0” auditory invites residents and guests of Saint Petersburg to open master-classes and lectures

The “Culture 2.0” auditory, dedicated to cultural development in the era of digital technologies and new media, will take place at the Business venue of the V St. Petersburg International Cultural Forum.

 

 

“Culture 2.0” auditory will operate on December 2 and 3 as part of the Public event flow of the business venue of the Forum, which will take place in the Russian Museum of Ethnography (Inzhenernaya St., 4/1).

Panel discussion #1

 

December 3, 15.00 – 17.00

 

“Culture in a smart-phone – unlimited possibilities or the end of a beautiful era?”
New media change the ways we interact with the world around us, making borders between the physical and the digital worlds fade.

 

They present new possibilities, making art more accessible, recordable, expand the audience and erase barriers. But at the same time, do they lead to the devaluation of art and cultural values? To their simplification? Does art lose its authenticity and uniqueness upon assuming the digital form?
