Broad understanding of culture in times of multiple crises


The war in Ukraine destroyed the hope that, after overcoming the Corona pandemic, we would be able to catch up with the pre-crisis level and expand the significance that culture had gained in the pandemic and its economic management. Culture must respond in and to multiple crises. Since the promotion of culture enjoys constitutional status but continues to be a voluntary self-governing task at the municipal level, thelegalization of cultural promotion laws or sectoral laws is intended to enforce a quasi-obligation of public cultural promotion. In reality, however, these expectations are not being met; instead, cultural federalism is coming under pressure as a result of these efforts at unitarization.
