The authors propose to discuss the image-idea of the concept of the International Cultural and Tourist Cluster “EAEU&APEC Co-operation Park” as a pilot minimally viable model of a new social and economic structure of international relations. The cultural and historical national model is proposed as an alternative one to the global and liberal non-national models of development. These models are the economic materialization of two opposite outlooks: spiritual and materialistic, respectively. The substantiation of the choice of the ‘sobornost’ category by the governing principle of modeling is given, its main spiritual and material effects are shown. Klironomy is accepted as the scientific basis of the model of spiritual outlook. The development of a practical model is carried out in the tradition of the conceptual theory of management. The results of the discussion will be used to promote the project and attract the scientific community to the design and study of cluster effects based on sobornost.
2 Sense of art (from the experience of perceptions of art) (DOI: 10.47451/art2021-05-002, EOI: 10.11249/art2021-05-002). Link: http://tuculart.eu/ftpgetfile.php?id=206 , Voloshina, L.A. Candidate of Philosophical Sciences (PhD), Head of School Library, High School of Folk Arts (Academy), St Petersburg, Russia, E-mail: voluta@yandex.ru
The research is devoted to a specific human ability, which the author calls “the sense of art”. It is presented in detail what components of art (in this case, painting) affect the viewer, falling into the sphere of his sensuality. The sense of art is aimed at developing the spiritual life of a person. The connection of this feeling with creative individuality, with traditional folk culture, is shown. In this research, the author, concludes that this feeling is inherent only in a person, the ability to perceive reality given in artistic images. This is an individual creative process of emotional and intellectual, rational and transcendent cognition of reality through the objects of artistic creativity.
3 Cultural heritage protection in the globalization context (DOI: 10.47451/her2021-08-001, EOI: 10.11249/her2021-08-001).

The article actualizes the problem of national identity through the preservation of the basis of the cultural heritage of peoples and ethnic groups in the era of globalization and the emergence of a large number of ‘melting pots’ that erase the edges of the uniqueness of individual peoples of the world. The author argues that for any emerging nation, the cultural heritage, even if artificial, determines to a large extent the ‘core culture’ and is one of the basic foundations of national identity. Consequently, an important role is played by the adaptation of immigrants, who bring and lobby their culture and traditions in new territories for themselves. It forces some countries seeking to preserve their history and cultural heritage to actively hinder the immigration process, even sacrificing the development of their ethnic group, which does not tend to reduce the birth rate. However, on other way, multiculturalism only contributes to the rooting of specific customs and traditions among immigrant diasporas, which finally turn into separate communities leading to a close existence. The author concludes that in conditions, when one’s cultural heritage is withering and the core culture is disintegrating, new cultural values belonging to new minorities begin to arise.
4 The relevance of the formation of the science of the cultural heritage preservation as the evolution of social and scientific thought (DOI: 10.47451/her2021-06-001, EOI: 10.11249/her2021-06-001).

Research in the field of cultural heritage preservation has been actively conducted over the past 150 years. The world community has achieved great success in forming a school of objects’ restoration and conservation of past civilizations’ cultures. However, in the early 21st century, a lot of knowledge began to go beyond what is already available in the classification of the sciences of art and culture. In the last third of the 20th century, a separate science of restoration began to emerge, which is also looking for its place between culture and art. The need to form a new scientific direction on cultural heritage preservation appeared due to the formation of a huge amount of scientific knowledge, which was supported by the evolution of the philosophical thought of the world-leading thinkers, who came close to defining the Concept of Klironomical Outlook, i.e., structural views on determining the value of cultural heritage. The author justifies that the world community has objectively approached the understanding and separation of the klironomical outlook, which contributes to the formation of a new complex of sciences of the cultural heritage preservation – klironomy. The research used the scientific works of the author of the article, as well as leading experts in the field of culture and philosophers.

The article purpose is to analyze the theme of insects in the sphere of visual arts from the perspective of the visual artist, as basis of the research, presenting certain historical, technical, artistic and conceptual aspects. The present study highlights the representations of certain specimens in the area of artistic creation and analyzes three stages of the creative act – from simple curiosity to science and to purely aesthetic value – the observations made in the field of entomology being part this. Surprising the phenomenon of decontextualization of arthropods in the natural environment leads the research towards original artistic manifestations and concerns, which leads me to pay great attention to the aesthetic side in the context of the elaboration of compositional structures in personal artistic creation.

11 Artistic strategies in Oliviero Toscani’s advertising. (DOI: 10.47451/art2021-04-001, EOI: 10.11249/art2021-04-001).

E-mail: csoreanu@hotmail.com. ORCID: 0000-0001-6958-1809.
In this article, we will discuss how contemporary advertising becomes the territory where various artistic expressions contribute in a complementary way to the constitution of the meaning of a work. The case study will approach the activity of Oliviero Toscani, and his two decades of collaboration with Benetton materialized in memorable advertising campaigns that rewrote the visual history of contemporary advertising. We will analyze how photographic media provides advertising with one of the most consistent expressive resources, based on the realism of the image, the endless possibilities in managing the visual composition, the premises of reproducibility and, last but not least, the appetite of an audience eager for the technological image. Also, we will try to discuss the creative premises and mechanisms that characterize Toscani’s creation, the reading conditions of his advertising works, as well as how his creative strategies combine the expressiveness of the technological precision of press photography, and the appropriation strategies specific to artistic postmodernity.
12 Politeness and the Art Criticism Discourse. (DOI: 10.47451/art2021-04-002, EOI: 10.11249/art2021-04-002).

Art criticism usually manifests itself in such written genre-texts as art reviews. When producing such a text, the critic finds himself/herself in a position of the interface between the general public and the artist, and, consequently, between the general public and the work of art. While, on the one hand, the critic has to remain true to his/her role as a guide to mediating understanding and appreciation of the works of art by the audiences, meanwhile bringing efficient/effective suggestions for the artists, on the other, the critic also needs to be a master of good writing in the use of the most effective discourse strategies. These include the application of the most relevant politeness principles for the sake of perpetuating good communication throughout the art world. The present study aims to discern the mechanisms of utilizing those principles in art criticism, in direct relationship to how works of art are (negatively) evaluated by the critics, who may balance between remaining polite and becoming utterly/straightly impolite, for the sake of truth.
13 Cyclicity in creation: from abstraction to figurative, from figurative to abstract. (DOI: 10.47451/art2021-04-003, EOI: 10.11249/art2021-04-003).

The paramount focus of this article shall be on painting, mainly that of contemporary artists, but apprehending back to their modern predecessors without which some of the aforementioned contemporary painting figurative/abstract would have been inconceivable. The research of the identification of some directions in painting, both in the creative process and in the educational one, is a difficult objective to achieve. The hierarchy and classification of some tendencies, as plastic formulas, represents a challenge only if we consider that any artist crosses over, during his artistic career, several stages of creation. At the same time, the present research aims to bring to attention one of the most significant examples of relating the topicality of artistic creation, with amplifying and renewing the horizon of artistic higher education. These aspects are always, or should be integrated in the teaching of each artist who teaches in art higher education institutions. The authors’ cases are important because they can reveal different aspects of the creation process that on one hand can start with abstraction and find the figurative in it, and on the other hand it can have its roots in reality, a reality that is reduced in simple abstract forms by the process of abstraction. Both cases have interdisciplinary aspects from psychology, philosophy and are related with other aspects of human activity such as memory, imagination, abstraction.
14 The Art of Acting: intercrossing borders between science and art. (DOI: 10.47451/art2021-04-004, EOI: 10.11249/art2021-04-004).

Caragiale”, Bucharest, Romania, E-mail: bogdana.darie@unatc.ro.
The article aims to present professor’s Ion Cojar method regarding the methodology of approaching the actor`s art from the point of view of the teaches who form future actors that are well trained, reaching both theoretical and practical dimensions. The purpose of the paper is to outline the fact that the art of acting is not something done by instinct or guided by emotions and spontaneous reactions, but, behind the scenes, lies a well-developed method, tested across many generations of students that combines psychology, aesthetics, critical thinking and acting practices. Blending old and new methods, creating a link between what was tested and what can be used in the future, the techniques used in the process of training the student from The National University of Theatre and Film “I.L. Caragiale” proved to be relevant in creating professionals that can operate in the artistic and scientific fields. In today`s context, there has to be a shift of paradigm in the way people see the art of theatre, that can no longer be treated only from the aesthetic point of view. Acting methods can be used in the educational process and in raising the well-being of future generation by combining them with work models that make appeal to scientific data, offering to the future actor a larger domain to explore and develop.
15 Net art-fine art: progressive versus destructive. (DOI: 10.47451/art2021-05-001, EOI: 10.11249/art2021-05-001).

The mankind has always been in search of improving its technological discoveries; as a result, culture and tradition were strongly influenced by this progress. Is there art without technique and science? There is. But as far as it is that we can make art without technique, so true is that technique improves art and even help it to develop itself. Technique generalizes, it can deny the irreductible particular cases and forms. The digitalization has made progress and can go beyond the rules that art has already been using. By introducing digital technologies in the field of making art and also selling it, we need a guidance to make it clear what kind of practices are beneficent for those who are parts of the huge mechanism of the artistic world: artists, collectors, curators, art critics, art historians and last but not least for the art loving public.

This article examines the foundation as well as the current conditions of dance education in the system of secondary education in Varna. The city is an international cultural center and is the first non- principal city to implement vocational ballet education. In 1964, the world’s first international ballet competition was held in Varna, which has granted the city a historic place in the thousands of years of cultural history of the world. The main source of information on the highly effective pedagogical practices of Galina and Stefan Yordanovi is an in-depth analysis of data collected from periodical press in the period 1965-1985. Their views on the development of dance training and methodology are covered mostly by local journalists in Varna. The focus of this paper is Stefan Yordanov’s extremely valuable article on vocational ballet education in Varna, published in Narodno Delo. In an attempt to reconstruct the history of art dance education in Varna with the authenticity of the shared ideas, these materials can serve as sources for an essential part of the yet unwritten history. This work is part of an overall study on teaching dance as art in secondary education in Bulgaria.  ? ???????? ?? ??????????? ???????? ? ????????? ?? ??????? ?????????? ? ????????? ?? ???????? ??????????? ??? ?????. ????? ? ???????????? ???????? ?????? ? ??????? ?? ?????, ?????? ?? ??????? ??????? ????? ???????? ????????????? ??????? ???????????. ???????????? ???? 1964 ?????? ?? ?????? ? ????? ???????????? ??????? ??????? ???????? ????? ?? ???????? ? ?? ????? ? ????????????? ???????? ???????. ???????????? ?? ?????????? ?? ??????????? ????? ? ??????? 1965-1985 ?????? ? ??????? ???????? ?? ????????? ??????????????? ??????? ?? ?????? ? ?????? ?????????. ??????? ???????? ?? ?????????? ?? ????????? ???????? ? ???????? ?? ????????? ???????? ?? ????????? ??????????. ?????? ? ??????????? ? ???????????? ??????? ???????? ?????? ?? ?????? ???????? ????????? ? ?-? “??????? ????” ?? ????? ??????????????? ??????? ??????????? ??? ?????. ? ???? ?? ?????????????? ?? ????????? ?? ?????????????? ??????? ??????????? ??? ????? ? ?????????????? ?? ??????????? ????, ???? ????????? ????? ?? ???????? ?? ????????? ?? ???? ?????????? ???? ?? ???????????? ???????. ????????? ? ???? ?? ?????????? ?????????? ?? ?????????? ?? ??????? ???????? ? ??????? ?? ???????? ??????????? ? ????????.
20 Ukrainian book design: ways of formation and development (DOI 10.47451/art2021-10-004). , Veronika Zaitseva, Candidate of Art History, Associate Professor, Department of Fine Arts, Institute of Arts, Boris Grinchenko Kyiv University, ORCID: 0000-0003-1160-1760.

In the Ukrainian graphic art development of the 20th century as a whole and specific art events and artistic works, a constant interaction of international and national, general and specific, modern and traditional is traced. The development of the new graphic art was especially influenced by the revaluation of the aesthetic qualities of national art. The research purpose is to study the development of the directions of Ukrainian book art, the formation of new creative features in the European cultural space. The research methodology consists of the general scientific methods application (analysis and synthesis, induction and deduction) and methods of art history (comparative, typological, descriptive). The scientific novelty lies in the study of book design, which has always been significant in Ukrainian art. Today, we have many fine works in the genre of book illustrations. These works reflected both the history of Ukrainian literature, the history of the national graphic art, as well as the history of cultural progress of Ukraine in general. Thus, book design is an extremely fruitful object of study, an intersection points in which the complicated  process of the interaction of social, political, spiritual, cultural and artistic and aesthetic factors is underway. The Ukrainian graphic art of those days reflected different all-European trends, e.g., modernism, symbolism, neo-primitivism, futurism, cubism, expressionism, constructivism, realism, surrealism, Art Deco, neoclassicism. The originality of the artistic language emerged through the use of traditional motifs and vanguard image creation tools.
21 The Human Voice as a Genius Instrument to be trained (DOI 10.47451/art2021-10-005) , Salim Khalil Saad, Professor, Doctor of Science in Art (Music), Department of Arab East Researches in Music, Faculty of Music Sciences, Moscow Scientific Research Institute of Art Studies, ORCID: 0000-0002-6036-3589
The professionalism of the Voice is the ability to control the human voice in order to activate and use it with all its expressive and influential capabilities. Voice control means learning it through analysis and theoretical and scientific analysis, and then installing it with the desired or proposed template from the student and analyst to give him the best cases in expression. This means submission to the state of training and practice of human voice with all its various data and points of performance, and, thus, the establishment of a methodology and schedule suitable for a professional purpose, scientifically applied (Scientifique – pratique) or inborn (Naturel – experimental). The former shortens the time devoted to professionalism, while the latter takes longer to increase productivity and remains free from the analysis and science that the former includes. Academic experience today has confirmed that each scientific phenomenon creates its own science and knowledge and becomes open for teaching at the university and specializes in its work and professionalism. And when knowledge precedes what is known about it, it reduces time and reduces the difficulties of confrontation. Therefore, the professionalism of its first type (scientific and applied) became the prerogative of science, its institutes and universities, without discarding the second type (innate – experienced). The two together is the best goal, and if we prefer between them, then our choice is based on the first according to scientific preference.
22 Graffiti: Public art movement (DOI 10.47451/art2021-10-006) , Ioana Alexandra Popa, Doctor in Visual Arts, Lecturer, Painting Department, University of Fine Arts and Design.
Art has its own distinct way of being and should not be confused with manifestations of imagination, such as propaganda or controversy. Graffiti is generally considered to be a social, cultural, political as well as a textual practice. It is a unique platform, where the speakers are unconstrained to express their ideologies, personal or social problems. Also, graffiti has been and will always be a form of political protest, of propaganda, because it is about claiming the street, doing what you want, not obeying the social rules and not following the directions issued by the art market. Freedom of expression in art means the absence of any additional rules. To aim the study purpose, the author used theoretical and empirical methods such as comparative, descriptive, content analysis and inductive. In the study course, the author used the materials of the works of modern experts in the field of art and graffiti such as J. Anthony, Julius, U. Eco, N. Ganz, E.H. Gombrich, E. Levinas, R. Palmer, A. Rorimer, Y. Yerznkyan, G. Gasparyan, and G.C. Stovers.
23 Българският музикален фолклор в творчеството на композитора Иван Спасов , Kostadin Buradzhiev
The national folklore wealth of Bulgaria is great. Today, the Institute of Musicology at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences stores more than 260,000 Bulgarian folk songs, about 30,000 folk melodies, over 4,000 dance instrumental melodies, about 6,000 filmed folk dances and customs accompanied by music, the Bulgarian National Radio has recordings with Bulgarian folk music, of which 3,000 titles are authentic, unprocessed music, etc. An analysis of the works of Bulgarian composers clearly outlines their different approach in their work with Bulgarian musical folklore. Their activity, in its entirety, has significantly contributed to the development of processing and original music based on folklore. Each of the examined composers outlines his own path in the development of the genre, giving a new direction to the young composers. The study object is folklore in songwriting by the composer Ivan Spasov. The study purpose is to research some of the folklore-based songs and their significance for the development of choral art in Bulgaria. The main methods used in the study are comparative analysis and synthesis. Approach them in a theoretical-cognitive, analytical aspect, the basis of the price of synthesis between poetry and music. Националното фолклорно богатство на България е голямо. Днес в Института по музикознание при Българската Академия на Науките се съхраняват повече от 260.000 български народни песни, около 30.000 народни мелодии, над 4.000 танцови инструментални мелодии, около 6.000 филмирани народни танци и обичаи, придружени с музика, Българското Национално Радио притежава записи с българска народна музика, от която 3.000 заглавия са на автентична, необработена музика и т. н.

25 Exploration of Time in Jeff Wall’s Photography (DOI: 10.47451/art2022-02-02) , Luca Mixich
Conceptual photography, since the 1960’s, has developed a different approach to photographing than any other photographical genre. Its main focus was on the concept behind the image, on its idea. However, my aim, in this article, is to analyze a variation of conceptual photography, more precisely the narrative one, its history and aesthetics, but also how it was explored by Jeff Wall (b. 1946) and how the Canadian artist approached and integrated time in his photographs. The main purpose of this article is to understand Jeff Wall’s place in the history of staged photography and to understand how he developed a creative type of visual narration and its relationship to time. This aspect will be seen in relation to the idea of fiction because the imaginary narration is closely linked with the progression of time. Also, this analysis could be particularly relevant in the context of photographical studies because it focuses on an aspect that has quite psychological and aesthetical depth but it is not present in the field of artistic academic research, namely the connection between fiction and photography. It can also be seen trans- and interdisciplinary.
26 Beauty in the visual arts as a phenomenon of perception (in Russian) (10.47451/cul2022-02-01) , Liudmila A. Voloshina
The article is devoted to the beauty topic as the central theme of art. The author considers beauty as a problem of individual perception. The idea of beauty is incorporated into our consciousness. It gives a person the opportunity to comprehend the world as a beauty manifestation, moreover, create this beauty himself. Using the example of painting, the author shows the importance of active perception of artistic work. It is an individual co-creation of the recipient with the author, in which the entire sensory, emotional, intellectual potential of the perceiver is involved. This process is presented as an activity that positively affects the mental and spiritual state of a person. The author concludes that art has an infinite potential for influencing a person since it is connected with our sensitivity since is intended to delight this sensitivity. The knowledge of beauty is contained in us both consciously and unconsciously. The whole history of human culture, since ancient times, tells us about what beauty is. It all depends on the creative individuality of both the artist and recipient, on what everyone specifically wants to get from art. Статья посвящена теме красоты, как центральной теме искусства. Красота рассматривается автором как проблема индивидуального восприятия. Идея красоты включена в наше сознание. Это и даёт человеку возможность постигать мир как проявление красоты, более того, самому творить эту красоту. На примере искусства живописи, автор показывает важность активного восприятия художественного произведения. Это индивидуальное сотворчество реципиента с автором, в котором задействован весь чувственный, эмоциональный, интеллектуальный потенциал воспринимающего. Данный процесс представлен как деятельность, положительно влияющая на душевное и духовное состояние человека. Автор делает вывод, что искусство имеет бесконечный потенциал воздействия на человека, так как оно связано с нашей чувствительностью, так как оно и предназначено для того, чтобы эту чувствительность услаждать. Знание о красоте содержится в нас как сознательное и бессознательное. Вся история человеческой культуры, начиная с древних времён, повествует нам о том, что такое красота. Всё зависит от творческой индивидуальности, как художника, так и реципиента, от того, что каждый конкретно хочет получить от искусства.
27 William Blake. Artist, poet, visionary imaginarian (10.47451/her2022-02-01) , Anda-Elena Cretiu
So many times, in humanity’s history, a genius was mistaken for a madman, or, at least, a too eccentric person for the accepted standards of society. Posterity, though, brought the value of a genius to light since usually genii are also visionaries. So was William Blake. Some think of him as a poet; some say he was, in fact, an artist with a hobby for writing, and some understood the power of his creative force in both fields and beyond those. In his “Prefatory Memoir” to an edition of Blake’s poems, W.M. Rosetti (1890, XI) called him “a glorious luminary.” The purpose of the present study is to analyze how his verse interlaces with his fine artworks, as well as ways in which, through his artworks, he related to already existent cultural masterpieces, offering us a new approach to them. The study also aims to follow the light he cast to reach future generations and reveal how he enlightened future creators. His cultural legacy in poetry, music, art, philosophy, and religion is overwhelming, as is his huge personality.
28 Protection of cultural heritage. Yazlovets Palace (10.47451/her2022-02-02) , Oksana Myronivna Diachok, Mykhaylo Petrovych Kuziv, Svitlana Oleksiivna Volska, Nataliia Mykhaylivna Datsiuk
The article examines the history of formation and architectural planning of the palace complex in the village of Yazlovets, Ternopil region. The monument of architecture and urban planning of national importance has partially lost its suitability for operation, needs urgent restoration and renovation, which is confirmed by field inspections. During its long history, the palace has undergone many reconstructions, prosperity, destruction and restoration, was at the centre of historical and political events in the region. Built as a defence complex, its buildings performed ideological, cultural, social, sacred functions. Today, the complex still has significant historical and cultural value, contains valuable artistic artifacts and attracts pilgrims and tourists from around the world. The palace gives ideological colour to the small town, is its bright dominant. The castle in the village of Yazlovets became part of the Ternopil Castles National Reserve. In the course of the research a historical reference about the object of cultural heritage was made, a recommendation on the use of the palace complex was given. The purpose of the article is to introduce into scientific circulation updated data on the valuable monument of urban planning and architecture of Ternopil region – Palace of the 17th and 18th centuries in the village of Yazlovets.
29 A recollection: early aircraft construction, the prerogative of wood craftsmen (10.47451/her2022-02-03) , Horia Salca
In this article, the author tried to consider the place and role of wood processors in the early period of the aeronautical industry, approximately 1910-1940, when most aircraft were built of wood. The professions in this field and the woodworking tools or machines used at that time are brought back to attention. Starting from the accounts of a first-rate craftsman who worked during the WWII at the Romanian Aeronautical Industry Plants in Braşov, Romania (going through the hierarchy from carpenter to foreman) and from the way the Bristol and Colonial Airplane Company in Filton, United Kingdom works (as reflected in the aerospace museum from Filton), but also from a technical regulation imposed by the United States War Department on factories that produced and repaired military aircraft, the author tries to reconstruct the form of organization and work during the pioneering period of aviation and during the first factories in the field. It can be considered that this article is a tribute to these woodworkers, but also a reconsideration of how the aeronautical industry developed and a remember of its beginnings for those of today. The author also tries to give pertinent answers, in his opinion, related to the causes of wood replacement as the main material for the construction of aircraft. Later days steel and aluminium, then fiberglass, modern composites, and, nowadays, the nanomaterials have taken its place, but it can never be forgotten or ignored. This year is the half-centenary of the death of Henri Coanda, a Romanian scientist, one of the pioneers of jet aviation, since 1910. This article is intended to be the first in a series of homage articles, designed to bring the work and personality to this genius.
30 Comprehensive conservation and restoration of two frames for the temple icons of the Sampson Cathedral in St Petersburg (10.47451/her2022-02-04) , Natalia M. Fomicheva
The article is devoted to the restoration of two carved gilded frames to the temple icons of the 1760s in the Rococo style, during the work on which the techniques of conservation, restoration, reconstruction and recreation associated with the severe physical condition of the objects of church decorative and applied art received in the restoration were comprehensively applied. The study purpose was to return the expositional appearance of church objects of decorative applied art as monuments of the cultural heritage of our country. Thanks to the well-coordinated and consistent conservation and restoration processes carried out on the monuments, professional craftsmen managed to turn the shapeless, heavily polluted fragments of two frames to the temple icons back into frames. After a comprehensive restoration of two frames, it was possible to return them to their former expositional and aesthetic appearance, prolong their life and preserve these monuments of church art for contemporaries and descendants, and then place them in the temple in their former historical places, i.e., to fulfil the main task of professional restorers to preserve the cultural heritage of Russia.
31 The relevance of klironomy as a complex of scientific knowledge of cultural heritage preservation (DOI 10.47451/her2022-04-01) , Aleksandr Shulgin
The relevance of the topic Klironomy Relevance as a Complex of Scientific Knowledge of Cultural Heritage Preservation concludes in consideration of klironomy not as a separate science but as a scientific knowledge complex, connected with many sciences from social and humanitarian fields. Despite klironomy includes three fundamental scientific directions, each of them has few sciences, cumulative existing knowledge forming united humanitarian outlook directed to researching of the main tangible and intangible values. Each klironomical science is clearly identified, withal has close connection together and uses knowledge received in adjacent sciences development, e.g., history, philosophy, anthropology, archaeology, physics, chemistry, etc. The study subject is the complex of klironomical sciences. The study object is cultural heritage preservation phenomenon. The study purpose is to detect interconnection of separate klironomical directions and sciences on example of each direction’s representative. In the study, historical, comparative, and logical analysis and also analyses and synthesis methods were used. To reach the set destination and solve tasks made, the works of the native and foreign specialists in culture, art, philosophy, history, geography, archaeology, and other sciences that help form klironomical outlook. The author concludes that to analyse three separated klironomical sciences each of which is included in separated klironomical direction it was concluded that they are interconnected, complete each other, and present complex and full characteristics to an object, subject, or element of cultural heritage. Thus, it can be concluded that Klironomy as the science of cultural heritage is a set of multiple separated klironomical sciences united in three scientific directions. 
32 Music teachers influencing lives (DOI 10.47451/her2022-04-02) , Maria Strenáčiková, Jr., Maria Strenáčiková, Sr., Mariana Kološtová
There are many teachers in Slovak music history and in present times who have educated generations of musicians with love and who have influenced many artistic careers and lifestyles.

33 Cultural Heritage of the Russian Abroad – Russian Envoy to the world (DOI 10.47451/her2022-05-01) , Tatiana A. Parkhomenko
The report examines the cultural heritage of the Russian diaspora from the viewpoint of a complex socio-cultural system that has been formed over a long historical period and includes objects of cultural heritage that are different in their composition, kinds, types and forms. Many of them are part of rossika – a vast array of foreign materials related to Russia (historical, socio-political, scientific, religious, literary and artistic), its authorship belonged to both foreigners and representatives of the Russian diaspora, who were engaged in diversified studies of the fatherland in a foreign land. All heritage objects are united by their involvement in Russia, by connection with its past and present, by transmission of the historical experience and cultural memory of the Russian people, as well as the preservation of the national and cultural self-identification of compatriots. It allows us to consider them as a historical and cultural phenomenon, which deserves a detailed description and study.
34 Documentary scientific heritage – actual contextual representation (DOI 10.47451/her2022-05-02) , Irina A. Urmina
The report analyses the process of the heritage model formation as the choice of different generations of different parts of it. The field of scientific knowledge is considered as a set of systematised objective knowledge accumulated by mankind. The role of science is considered, in which rational, i.e., reasonable, true, reliable knowledge of people about the environment and themselves is concentrated, which is intersubjective, can be shared and translated by people in communicative processes. The significance of cultural heritage, including scientific, is also evaluated, which for new generation is only illustrative information that is not related to current life and requires updating, i.e., rational development in order to be used in solving vital tasks for an individual. The problem of reliable and objective interpretation of historical events and circumstances of scientists’ activities reflected in the submitted documents, letters, diaries, notes, photographs, etc. is revealed.
35 Psicología de los objetos y su interacción con nuestra cultura y sociedad. El diseño emocional / Psychology of objects and their interaction with our culture and society. Emotional design (in Spanish) (DOI 10.47451/cul2022-05-01) , Ioana Aida Furnica Slusaru
Numerosos diseñadores, sociólogos y psicólogos han escrito a lo largo del tiempo sobre las relaciones que establecemos con los objetos. Algunos hablan de relaciones emocionales, mientras que otros se desmarcan completamente de la connotación de las emociones valorando solo la función del objeto. También, cabe destacar que se habla de objetos inanimados, los cuales nos pueden ofrecer únicamente experiencias relacionadas con la función para la que fueron creados. Este articulo pretende investigar esa relación entre el objeto y el consumidor, teniendo en cuenta la sociedad en la que vivimos, y en quépunto se posiciona la cultura en ella. Todo esto, teniendo en cuenta la psicología de los objetos y cómo están diseñados para que jueguen un papel tan importante en nuestras vidas, desde sus orígenes hasta el presente, ya que la evolución del diseño de objetos es paralela a la de la sociedad; y ha de ser así porque tiene que responder a las necesidades de cada momento. La mayoría de los objetos están creados con fines prácticos, pero a pesar de no tener una utilidad definida, se podría decir que los objetos decorativos tienen también su función: la de embellecer. El campo de estudio de este articulo también pretende demostrar que incluso los objetos prácticos, si tienen un aspecto estético, son más fáciles de utilizar, respetando ciertos criterios a enumerar. Se trata de buscar, clasificar y analizar cada criterio para encontrar una herramienta de comprensión y organización jerárquica con la que el individuo pueda ordenar los estímulos circundantes dentro de su mundo de valores y conceptos. La metodología que se usa es monográfico-teórica (afrontamos un tema, un “problema abstracto que ha podido ser, o no, objeto de otras reflexiones” (Eco, 1994) y está dividida en dos partes, la parte de que habla de la teoría de los objetos en si y la que trata sobre la interacción del objeto, a través de su interfaz, con la sociedad, y sus cualidades psicológicas. Estableceremos también el concepto de interfaz como forma comunicante y como contexto de comunicación de lo objetual. Tomaremos la interfaz como un aspecto comunicante del objeto con el mundo, un “idioma/lenguaje” propio de cada objeto. Así como los humanos tenemos nuestro idioma para comunicarnos, cada objeto tiene la interfaz que le corresponde según su destino (la función para la que fue diseñado). Y según el “idioma/lenguaje” utilizado (la interfaz), obtenemos una respuesta u otra del interlocutor. Cada interfaz representa una identidad, la identidad de cada objeto a través de la cual se comunica con el exterior. Vamos a hacer referencia a un autor importante, Donald Norman, entre muchos otros, que hablan de esos aspectos emocionales que intervienen en la funcionalidad del diseño. Resumiremos a modo de conclusión todos los criterios mencionados, que se podrían considerar criterios de un buen diseño, dejando constancia de los resultados de la investigación para los futuros diseñadores, creadores de objetos y de experiencias de usuario. A través del presente estudio se establecen las posibles bases para futuros proyectos de investigación o proyectos prácticos que parten del tema de la funcionalidad/atractivo de los objetos.
36 The culture of visuals and the visuals of culture (DOI 10.47451/art2022-05-01) , Catalin Soreanu
This article offers the premises for an analytical reflection on how we look at images today, while questioning the role they have in our understanding of contemporary culture. We will discuss different visual culture aspects based on relevant case studies from advertising, branding, journalism, and art, arguing that the image is prevalent in today’s media culture, with our perception shaped by its structural lecturing rules (in the detriment of other content formats). Since contemporary culture is constantly and arbitrarily build on a subjective and consciousness perspective, we are witnessing on the cultural identity definition of our existence through image-reading patterns, text-looking solutions, and video-lecturing directions, as a multimodal subjective information-processing reaction to the spectacle of this intense digitalization of the society.
37 The escape of Chekhov’s characters through religion (DOI 10.47451/art2022-05-02) , Dana-Mirela Puia
In a study that involves the interpretation of such complex characters as those in the sphere of Russian writing, I inevitably reached issues like faith, soul, religion, suffering and aspirations. Considering that mysticism underlies the Russian soul, I tried to understand the human dimension of the characters from Chekhov’s plays, Three sisters, Uncle Vanya, The Cherry Orchard and The Seagull. Thus, I analysed the abyssal Slavic soul through the ideas of Russian mystical school and its representatives, Paul Evdokimov and Nikolai Berdiaev, starting from the image of Christ in Russian thinking. „The soul of the Russian man is directed to the Kingdom of God, but yields easily to temptations, imitations, and illusions, and easily falls into the power of the kingdom of darkness”. For Chekhov, one must be faithful or go in search of faith, otherwise his life will be deserted. This study is intended for those interested in russian dramatic characters and their search for faith.
38 Începuturile teatrului de animaţie cult din România / The Beginnings of the Cult Puppet Theatre in Romania (in Romanian) (DOI 10.47451/art2022-05-03) , Daniel Stanciu
Teatrul românesc de păpuşi a avut mai multe forme de tradiţie, care au apărut ca urmare a diverselor influenţe interculturale. Vertepul ucrainean a influenţat tradiţia marionetelor de vicleim, influenţa Karagözului turc este prezentă în teatrul satiric din secolul al XVIII-lea, Punch şi Judy şi Kasperle sunt asemănătoare cu personajul din Romania, Vasilache. Multe dintre aceste tradiţii populare au supravieţuit până la mijlocul secolului al XX-lea. Dar, la începutul secolului al XX-lea, a luat naştere o formă modernă de artă a păpuşilor, ca şi în celelalte ţări din Europa. Acest fenomen s-a produs în special ca urmare a influenţei teatrelor de marionete ceh şi austriac. Atunci au fost înfiinţate câteva teatre de marionete în România, ca teatre de repertoriu şi de artă. Acest articol este despre acel moment important al întemeierii teatrului modern de animaţie.
39 De la mozaic la pixel în Arta Textilă / From Mosaic to Pixel in Textile Art (in Romanian) (DOI 10.47451/art2022-05-04) , Ecaterina Marghidan, Mădălina Vieriu, Raluca Simona Loghin
Datorita tehnologiei şi a felului în care iau naștere suprafeţele textile ţesute sau tricotate, acestea pot fi reduse la o reprezentare grafică de reţele geometrice modulare, pătrate de cele mai multe ori. Gândite astfel, orice compoziţie decorativă se aseamănă cu tehnica mozaicului în care pentru construirea imaginii aceasta e redusa la o structură din unităţi de aceeaşi dimensiune, dar din culori sau texturi diferite.  Patchwork-ul din punct de vedere istoric ilustrează tehnica mozaicului textil şi face tranziţia între tehnicile clasice, manuale sau mecanice şi arta digitală contemporană. Pixel art şi compoziţiile lucrărilor NFT au la baza un concept similar, de creare a lucrării din imagini minuscule independente, corelate modular cromatic.
40 Cyclicity in creation: from drawing to memory, from memory to drawing (DOI 10.47451/art2022-05-05) , Ioana Palamar, Smaranda-Sabina Moldovan
This study provides a wider view over Romanian contemporary painting from the two national poles of art: Iasi, located in the north-east part of the country and Timisoara, representing the west side of Romania. It is focused on fusing painting and drawing, with an array of works on paper such as drawings, watercolor, altered photographs and mixed media by Smaranda Moldovan and mixed media portraits on canvas by Ioana Palamar. Both study cases present a microcosmos of the intangible cultural heritage with roots in memory, not a collective one, but an individual one – a long term memory and an iconic memory of landscapes from Romania and France. The study shows the importance of memory in contemporary art, even if it was nominated as a cliche. The authors believe that memory has still not been sufficiently offered as an empirical art research method and that memory combined with the two genders, painting and drawing, can produce a new and unique repository of imagery.
41 American Choral Music. Historical and Stylistic Aspects (DOI 10.47451/art2022-05-06) , Marta Otilia Burduloi
Speaking about the American choral music, conductor Kathy Romey observed that “our choral inheritance reflects a kaleidoscope of cultural and religious roots which gave birth to an astonishing melting pot” of musical and individual voices. The “American” choral music can be observed from two geographic perspectives – the United States and North America – which include works of composers from Canada, the United States, Puerto Rico, and Mexico. In both contexts, “specific American” choral music is extremely varied, flexible, and in a continuous change. It could take the form of a hymn of Shakers, of a song of Native Americans, a Moravian hymn, a spiritual Negro, of a song from the divine service of Judaic Sabbath, of a lullaby, a civil war marching, a Mexican salsa dance, a gospel hymn, an Asian artistic song, Broadway music, blues, a cowboy ballad or a European folk song. All these and much more are part of our collective culture – a diverse and rich tradition of many peoples, which expresses itself through a multitude of musical styles and genres.”
42 Photography and Sociality. Between Banfi and the Selfie (DOI 10.47451/art2022-05-07) , Amalia Gaiţă, Luca Mixich
The main purpose of this article is to analyse the relationship between photography and sociality. Since its beginnings, the photographical language was in close proximity to society and therefore was able to depict significant aspects of the everyday life through images. In contemporary times, the photographical image developed new variables and nuances that will be analysed in this article. The relationship with social issues changed in the last decades, especially considering the advent of the social media. Because of it, the photographical image went through different transformations and it obtained new socio-psychological nuances. In the first section of the article, the analysis is broader and more philosophical, aiming to capture the nature of photography and its relation to contemporary society but also to solitude. The works of Antonio Banfi are quite relevant here and especially his concept of “sociality” related to aesthetics. Afterwards, in the second section of this article, the author will focus on a narrower analysis, applied to the selfie and to how this type of image constructs the virtual identity of its users. The focus will be placed both on the psychological and sociological aspects
