The project analyses how globalising forces may stimulate or hamper creative forms of cultural production in concrete interlinked social spheres in Europe, India, Africa Australia and the Caribbean. It provides new understandings of the practices/conditions of visual production in an era of increasing global interconnectedness. Central assumption is that creativity should not be measured by assessing the relative novelty of end products, a rather particular Modernist construct of creativity, but rather by exploring: practices of dynamic improvisation as part of ongoing processes of cultural production, appropriation, consumption and (re)contextualisation.
