Abstract. The aim of the work is to explore alternative ways of communication between poets and audience and methods for reproducing poetry through topical practices at the beginning of the XXI century. Accordingly, it aims to consider cultural and artistic experiments of the second decade of the 21st century developed on the basis of language as a symbolic sign and sound system; to identify the main directions of intermedial interaction, the degree of socio-cultural differentiation and variability of communicative agents. The author applies the method of intermedial analysis formed on the basis of post-structural and postmodern methodology as well as the systematic approach of the theory of communication. The synthesis procedure involves considering of the integral properties of synthetic practices that are not inherent to the constituent components. The study determines the intermedial ties in topical poetic practices of the 21st century.

Plenty of communicative forms of presentation of poetic texts of the beginning of the 21st century reflect continuity with poetic practices of the 1990s but in the conditions of the screen culture of the hypermodern. New formations indicate the transition of literature from autonomy to mediality and intermediality, from authenticity to reproductivity, demonstrating transgression of borders between various spaces (real, virtual), artistic environments. Synthetic forms of topical practices such as performance, installation, flash mob, street art, show different directions of intermedial interaction in modern reproduction, attract a wide audience to cultural puncture, democratizing urban spaces.
