Interaction of Entertainment and Visual Forms in Contemporary Culture

Abstract: The article analyzes the problem of prevalence of visual and spectacular components in artistic culture of the last centuries.

Keywords: Culture, literature-centrism, spectacle, visuality, theater, circus, cinema, television, program.
