about this item

In twenty-five years, 80% of the world population will live in Asia and Africa. What changes, culturally I particular, should be expected in this century? This is the vast and fascinating question Jean-Louis Roy tries to answer with the help of correspondents from Africa, Asia, the Americas and Europe. The author argues that shifting wealth from the West to Asia, Latin America and Africa causes the reconfiguration of the economic map. This tilting also transforms the global cultural space. The dominant cultural position occupied by the Atlantic area will not disappear overnight. However, it is important to note that emerging countries are working earnestly, well served by the tools of the digital age. For example, China is already the world leader in the art market, and Nigeria, the second in international film production after India. Diversity emerges from all sides. Welcome to the twenty-first century!
