Is culture going smaller scale?

New, smaller scale formats seem to be emerging that are easier to produce and might also fit better in our changed and busy lives. Here are some examples I have come across:

Covid has forced a pianist to play at different times and without a break. And he has loved it so much, he doesn’t want to go back.

Under Covid restrictions film director Pedro Almodovar produced a 30 minute film with actress Tilda Swinton. While smaller-scale it seems, however, he spared no expense.

The visual arts are experimenting with smaller pop-up locations and partnerships with outside organisations. As a case in point, Auckland Art Gallery just opened a satellite exhibition – in addition to its current blockbuster though, not instead.
