Cultural Revolution June 27th – August 8th, 2015
Cultural Revolution The term cultural revolution has multiple meanings within the context of history and relates to themes of nationalism, intellectualism, sexuality, spirituality and various forms of political, economic and social ideology. Throughout the world, societies are shaped through a range of progressive movements, which are often artistic in scope and sometimes violent in means.
In contemporary times, technological advancements have directed cultural progression in modes ranging from scientific breakthroughs to advancing global consumerism. China, for example, etched out a status as a closed Communist society though a violent class struggle, referred to as the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, but has within the last generation become one of the new engines of Capitalism, in a display of the dynamic momentum of history and culture.
