Semiotics of Crisis 
Abstract: The article conceptualizes the signs of birth of a new culture with new characteristics through the example of degradation of many phenomena of classical culture, which are being substituted with remakes, upgrades and simulacra. The crisis of preceding culture is considered as the genesis of a new one with yet unknown characteristics.
Key words: culture, art, crisis, simulacrum, renewal.
