“Dialogue of Arts” is a magazine for those who love art and are curious about it.
However, it is not restricted to fine arts. We are trying to keep track of the most current
events from cinema, theater, music, fashion, psychology, and philosophy. But, above all,
we focus on the phenomena in modern cultural process characterized by interaction and
convergence of different art forms, science, and everyday life.
One of the main features of contemporary world is division of culture into numerous
clusters. Our magazine is willing to overcome this singularity and to create a “unified
space” of culture.
