Abstract [en]

With the expansion of the European Union eastwards,nations have adopted various strategies for being included in the Europeancommunity. This article discusses examples of cultural technologies used bypost-communist countries in aligning with Western Europe. It is argued that thephenomenon is in fact not new, as the marketing of nations has occurred since atleast the World’s Fairs of the 19th century. However, while the World’s Fairsaddressed the nation-states of high industrialism, cultural technologies are thefeatures used in a post-industrialized context, where it is more important toimpress with abilities of symbolic production rather than with traditionalindustrial production. In terms of modernization processes, it can be argued thatthe increased emphasis on symbolic production indicates a shift fromtechno-industrial modernization to techno-cultural modernization.
