Culture is the second nature, the sphere of human sense of being. Under the threat of a new world war, culture looks especially fragile.
The picture of modern culture is largely determined by the ideas of modernity and postmodernity era, both through their development and their rethinking, adaptation or denial. Modern culture is a certain set of original cultures that are interacting, and their dialogue goes not only along the present day axis, but along the “past future” axis, as well.
Cultural and intercultural contacts studying, analysis of the modern historical and cultural situation requires consideration of material history as part of the cultural heritage interpretation, as well as the contemplating the modern museum organizations, the researching of individual objects and generalization of the whole museum collections.
