“Reading the 1980s: Relationships between Art and Politics”

Doç.Dr. Esra Aliçavuşoğlu (Marmara University, Faculty of Fine Arts)

The 1980s could be characterized as the years in which the production of art in Turkey has experienced a number of ruptures. Turkey had begun these years with a military coup, and following the coup d'état the country was integrated into neo-liberal economic policies. These years, which probably saw the most daring works of art in terms of artistic language, were also the years when the writing of art history was reassessed alongside the formation of a new market. This seminar aims to present a comprehensive discussion of the production of art and the writing of art history in the 1980s.

Esra Aliçavuşoğlu

She graduated from the Department of Art History at Istanbul University, Faculty of Literature in 1996. She pursued her graduate studies at the same faculty, receiving her master’s degree in 1999 and her doctoral degree in 2005 with a thesis on “Self representation in artists’ works in post-1980s Turkish Art”. In 2000, she participated in courses on “Curatorial Studies” at Central Saint Martins of the University of the Arts, London. Between 1996 and 2002, she worked as an arts and culture reporter at Cumhuriyet newspaper, as an editor for Sanat Dünyamız magazine published by Yapı Kredi Publications, and as Editor in Chief of Tarih Vakfı Istanbul Magazine, respectively. During 2006-2013, she wrote articles and art reviews for Cumhuriyet newspaper and Arredamento Architecture Magazine. Appointed as an associate professor in 2013, she continues serving as a faculty member of Marmara University Faculty of Fine Arts, giving lectures on art history. She is a founding member of AICA, International Association of Art Critics, Turkey and serves as an editor at AIAS – International Association of Independent Art and Design Schools. Aliçavuşoğlu has a number of articles published in various national and international academic publications.
