The History of Images after the History of Art:
Culturological Aspect
(Part 3)

Abstract. The article focuses on impoverishment of communication with artistic values and analysis of its interrelation with the period of formation of industrial society. Such a process is classified by the author as regress of culture, which makes expedient the point to be discussed in a culturological aspect. A breakdown of the hierarchy of culture in transitional periods contributes to shifting of marginal aesthetic formations to the center of artistic culture. A specific organizing mosaic principle starts to work. Discussing the history of new visuality, the author marks that to some extent it appears as the history of birth, formation and change of different systems of vision.

Key words. Aesthetic experience, new visuality, mosaic principle, civilization progress, artistic values, contemplation, transformation of perception, oversimplification of culture.
