Culture penetrates into all spheres of people’s activity, and through it humankind is basically renewed. Therefore, culture is at the centre of all global transformations. Cultural standards play a vital part in the specificity of any community, reflected in the cultural experience of any country as “a local civilization” as well as in the subcultures. Therefore, the analysis of a community generates a need to understand its cultural standards. Understanding culture makes up the kernel of both present and future cultural paradigms. Postmodernism is the concept connected with culture. One of the important specifications of the postmodern is the fact that everything has acquired the cultural character in the present time. Postmodernism conditions the coexistence of various cultural fragments expressing the specificity of thinking about contemporaneity.
