Blog: Culture Matters

We think culture matters. It is important and meaningful, of course. It can have material effects. Culture is built out of materials and matter (natural and man-made materials) and that matters too. We also often ask in our Centre what's the matter with culture? What's wrong or what's right with it and how can we make it matter more.
