Contemporary aesthetic cosmopolitanism studies have focused on the comprehension of the consumption both of exotic and ordinary products, and are sometimes connected to a possible consciousness of the individuals regarding the Other. Considering that the aesthetic cosmopolitanism is ambivalent and does not necessarily produce an ethical, moral or political consciousness of living together, we propose the discussion around the new figure of a cosmopolitan amateur. Our aim is to develop a discussion on the emergence of cosmopolitan consciousness, practices, as well as imagination, from the perspective of cultural participation and consumption, as examples of the so-called “ordinary cosmopolitanism” that complete the approach in terms of omnivorousness.
