Understanding the Culture system

This paper intends to understand how the essence of art is in the cultural context of a society. Understanding of the nature of art in the cultural context is absolutely necessary, so that researchers can correctly address the arts that will later become objects in their research. For this reason the issues to be discussed are the notions of: culture, art and the nature of art in society.


In everyday terms we often hear people talking about culture, but what they mean by culture is art. There are some people who admire certain dances, certain traditional clothes, traditional architecture, performing arts; or there are also people who are fascinated by oil paintings, poetry readings or regional songs. Then they immediately assessed: “What a great cultural society.” Of course the use of cultural terms there is not wrong, it only needs to be completed; because otherwise culture will only be interpreted narrowly and simply.
