metamodernism, Science-Art, visual culture, cultural trend, media reality


The purpose of the article is to reveal the development features of the modern movement Science-Art through the prism of metamodernism trends. Research methodology. The method of theoretical research, analytical, historical and cultural, systematic and structural, typological method, as well as the method of culturological and comparative analysis, are applied, which allowed us to identify the main trends of metamodernism and study the development of modern movement Science-Art. Scientific novelty. Based on culturological analysis, the concept of metamodernism is considered in the context of a new artistic sensuality characteristic of modern art trends that do not correspond to the aesthetics of postmodernism. The Science-Art movement is studied on the example of E. Kac (Genesis, 1999, GFP Bunny, 2000, Eighth Day projects, 2001) and M. de Menezes (The Nature? project), and special features of its development are revealed. Conclusions. Current trends in the development of visual culture demonstrate the desire to create irrational experiences, new contemplative or bodily experience in the process of direct immersion in the atmosphere as an emotional state that corresponds to the concept of metamodernism. The characteristic trends of metamodernism are the appeal of artists to unpopular materials and at the same time — the transformation of reality into media reality. Such tendencies are especially acute in Science-Art, which is characterised by an organic combination of traditional expressive methods with scientific and research ones; an artistic way of presenting scientific data, and inventions that acquire aesthetic value in the process of representation; the development in many areas of modern science. The study revealed that Science-Art is a current cultural trend of the active interpenetration of scientific research and artistic practices, characterised by a new aesthetics that is directly related to the philosophy of contemporary art.
