Good life differs across cultures.

My motives:

I believe that cultural sensitivity is the key to a harmonious future. In the emerging multi-polar world, various worldviews, various ways of living a good life, and various values may flourish. 

As of the 2020s, the bi-polar world is already the fact. To avoid potential tensions, we need to acknowledge and respect the cultural diversity. Being a good human has various meanings across cultures.

In my work, to let us better understand „outgroups”, I cross the boundaries the culture imposed on us.
