I have need to react on two points published here around term “cultural diversity”, one in contribution of Ingrid Commandeur in “Globalization of the Art System” (although I realize it is meant as a provocation) on the "the whole idea of a spontaneous cultural diversity" and the other, there is a poll set at the n.e.w.s. web site asking visitors and contributors to vote for: How should we try to define “cultural diversity”?: 1) each contributor should write a definition, 2) visitors to the site can be given access to the “book on cultural diversity” to add their definition.
