The geography of art

Is there such a thing as geography of art? Such phrases as “fascination with Asian culture”, or “the nature of Scandinavian culture” are widespread in the mass media, so the notion “geography of culture” should not surprise anyone; it seems to be clear and indisputable. What is more, TV shows have been recently dominated by such topics as dance, cuisine, and broadly understood “lifestyle”. It seems that exactly these topics: dance, cuisine, fashion, or various ideas of wellness and healthy lifestyle are now considered the main components of culture. What is sometimes forgotten, at least in the popular culture, is the important component of culture: art.
