IMA Vol.27: The Community as A Spirit of The Times
Technological developments and the wave of globalization have accelerated social transformations. The values produced by the modernization process have started to face significant challenges in the contemporary era. Environmental destruction has escalated on a global scale; medical technologies have lengthened human lives; AI has resulted in automation; a sharing economy has become popular; SNS and other technologies are changing the relations between individuals and society. Ideas regarding happiness, stability, and other views on life are also shifting.
Unique communities drawing people with similar beliefs in search of new values are increasingly developing globally. The future, as seen in the photographs that capture these communities, offer propositions for our problems and concerns as well as our fantasies and ideals.
