Summary/Abstract: The article explores the topic of the role of art as a visual media in intercultural communication. It shows how particular works of art depict different relations between the individual and society. The author argues that visual art could successfully participate in the process of intercultural communication, break down various mental barriers, and open up core values different than those of our own cultural context. From prehistoric times, visual media has played an important role in intercultural communication. For various reasons, art itself was more open to such dialogue than philosophy and art theory. After the “visual turn”, the importance of the image in intercultural communication strongly grew. Cybernetic space and various new media art projects meaningfully extend possibilities of interactive communication between various cultures and peoples all over the world.
