“The Canon and Representation in Contemporary Art”

Dr. Osman Erden (MSGSÜ, Department of Art History)

The word canon, which means ‘rule’ in Ancient Greek, is known to have entered the terminology of art history in the 20th century. The formation of the canon and the oppositions against the canon could be considered to be among the most important issues that play a principal role in the establishment of the history of Western art. However, the concept of the canon has been in circulation in Turkey only very recently. This seminar will be focusing on the emergence of the concept of the canon in Turkey, its place in contemporary art, and the issue of representation in contemporary art.

Osman Erden

He was born in 1974 in Istanbul. He studied Art History at Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University, and completed his master’s thesis, titled “Reflections of National Socialism in German Art” in the programme of Western and Contemporary Art at the Institute of Social Sciences of the same university. He received his doctoral degree with a thesis titled “Elements Shaping the Realm of Contemporary Art in Turkey”. He continues to serve as a faculty member at the Department of Art History of Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University. He has served as a board member of the International Association of Art Critics (AICA), Turkey, affiliated with UNESCO, in 2008-2011, and acted as president of the association in 2011-2014. In 2016, his book titled Modern Sanatın Kısa Tarihi (A Brief History of Modern Art) was published.
