Triumph of Culture and Politics

triumph of culture

In the United States today, culture and politics are at a fever pitch. Democrats are sticking to political issues, and Republicans are clamoring about culture. Both sides have their strengths. They have a general urge to know and professional willingness to accept new information.

The ‘culture war’ sounds like a fun idea, especially since it involves two parties that will both be fighting each other. But if you look at the history of the United States, you will find that there are many examples of less successful episodes of US history.

Culture is not only a discipline, it is also a commodity. It can be purchased, exhibited, or even performed. So the question is, what does culture do for us? This article explores a number of ideas.

As the leading example, Triumph of the Will was an important piece of propaganda created by the Nazis. Although it is now shown in Germany only as part of an educational program, its power has been demonstrated. And its effects can be experienced, both visually and psychologically.

Triumph of the Will is a film that shows us how far we have come from the “worst of the worst” of the past, but it is also a piece of propaganda. It was made to fuel the nationalist fires of the era. At the same time, it has a health warning.

Triumph of the Will is an effective demonstration of the art of cinematic propaganda. It includes a series of powerful silhouette images. One scene depicts a stone eagle and swastika fading into the view of Hitler. Another is a panoramic view of a large crowd. Using a combination of close-ups and panoramas, the film portrays a complex range of events.

Similarly, the Museum as Celebrity is a clever use of spectacle, spectacle that demonstrates the importance of a certain concept in culture. This structure aims to present Modernity as a subversive strategy that satisfies a need.

Another cleverly disguised example of the Museum as Celebrity is Big Brother. Combined with the success of the Museum as Celebrity, this is one of the structural defining characteristics of the 21st Century.

Another novel application of the Museum as Celebrity is the Celebrity Museum. A type of cultural ruins, this institution benefits a depressed local economy by increasing property values in the area. It is also a vehicle for socially conscious policies. Unlike a conventional museum, these institutions are funded by investors who invest in founders who share a social purpose.

For example, a community outreach program called Wings allows Triumph Group employees to directly benefit local charities. Many other companies are engaged in similar activities. Despite the fact that the Museum as Celebrity has a social and economic function, it is also a very mainstream institution.

Clearly, the “triumph of the culture” has been a long time in the making. Its role in adversity and in politics is getting more attention during lockdowns. However, if we can identify “projects of culture,” we will be able to navigate this challenging territory.
