Through an understanding of cultural communication in the worldwide mediascape, this book opens up the problematic area of identity and community construction, representation and participation across and beyond boundaries. It discusses the idea of a democratisation of multicultural societies, focusing particularly on the central question of the mobilisation of ethnic minorities in public space. Based on various empirical case studies, it aims to show both the various forms of resistance but also the adherence of ethnic minority media to hegemonic ideology. This book is therefore interested in the forms of rupture and continuity with the hegemonic discourses and representations which circulate in the media space, in the political field, and more generally, in public space. It particularly aims to contribute to theories about the transformation of public space in a global context of material and immaterial flows.

We are living through a time when old identities - nation, culture and gender are melting down. Spaces of Identity examines the ways in which collective cultural identities are being reshaped under conditions of a post-modern geography and a communications environment of cable and satellite broadcasting. To address current problems of identity, the authors look at contemporary politics between Europe and its most significant others: America; Islam and the Orient. They show that it's against these places that Europe's own identity has been and is now being defined. A stimulating account of the complex and contradictory nature of contemporary cultural identities.

How can art act as an intercultural mediator for dialogue? In order to scrutinize this question, relevant theoretical ideas are discussed and artistic intervention projects examined so as to highlight its cultural, political, economic, social, and transformational impacts. This thought-provoking work reveals why art is needed to help multicultural neighbourhoods and societies be sustainable, as well as united by diversity. This edited collection underlines the significance of arts and media as a tool of understanding, mediation, and communication across and beyond cultures. The chapters with a variety of conceptual and methodological approaches from particular contexts demonstrate the complexity in the dynamics of (inter)cultural communication, culture, identity, arts, and media. Overall, the collection encourages readers to consider themselves as agents of the communication process promoting dialogue.
