The tone set for the symposium is cultural variety in face of globalization, as applied to design and urban planning. The theme, I think, can be
reworded as diversity in post-modernity as expressed in contemporary art, architecture, urban
planning, and other facets of culture.
Post-modernity is both contemporary, i.e. belonging to our time, and contemporary as applied to the cultural period starting from the 1970’s to
the present. It is quite different from the term modern as in the modern art movement which
spans from about 1900 to 1970, and therefore very much part of history.
