What is the purpose of culture?

"Culture" is a concept with multiple definitions that is difficult to grasp in its complexity. In response to the question posed in the title, the programme traces a route from the conception of culture as a set of tools for relating to the world to the political dimension of culture as a space of conflict and an instrument for social change, via the problem of the commoditization of culture in the consumer society and the twofold function of culture as an individual experience and as a shared heritage.
