CONCEPTUAL MODELS OF PUBLIC SPACE IN 19TH AND 20TH CENTURY MUSIC


The term "public space" was entered by the American anthropologist E. Hall, who understood it as a communication area of exclusive persons of the president or figures of policy and art with people. The goal of research is to reveal conceptual models of public space, their indicators and means of marking.
Research methods include hermeneutics, musicological analysis.
We distinguish three models of conceptual space reflecting images of public, the people and the crowd. For instance, consolidation of people as spiritual community in church service is perceived as the people united by the common aspiration of national consciousness. In some cases the people turns into the mocking spontaneous crowd. Models of the people’s image reflection in music represent the unconscious aspirations existing in society at that historical period to a certain form of the statehood which is disclosed in the form of Utopia, anti-Utopia, liberalism, etc.
