Cultural Policies and Art

Seminar
Cultural Policies and Art

Speaker: Besim F. Dellaloğlu
About the Seminar:  Whether or not the state should have a “cultural policy” has always been a subject of debate. However, the fact that the modern institution which we call nation-state, has emerged as a result of at least a certain cultural background in European experience has not been discussed at the same intensity. In European history, the nation-state has actually been formed within the cultural public sphere that has developed since the Renaissance. In this sense, it may be more meaningful to speak of a kind of “cultural state” rather than cultural policies of the state.
In countries of modernization like Turkey, because of sensitivities of "underdevelopment", "retardation", especially the reality of culture and the arts as a mark of modernity have been ignored. Culture and art are perceived as a “luxury” that can only come to the agenda when it comes to a certain level of political economy. However, a very strong and profound political culture lies behind the development of modernity in Europe.
About Besim F. Dellaloğlu: He was born in Istanbul in 1965. He graduated from the Galatasaray High School in 1984 and from the Bosphorus University with a major in Political Science and International Relations in 1990.  He completed his Masters and Doctorate Degrees at the Mimar Sinan University in the field of Sociology under the supervision of Ömer Naci Soykan.  During his undergraduate and graduate studies, he worked as a French tourist guide for a long time. He toured most of the country. He conducted postdoctoral researches and teaches at Frankfurt Goethe University (1998), Paris VIII University (2002), Lisbon University (2014), Strasbourg University (2017-2018), Mainz Gutenberg University (2018-2019). Thanks to these occasions, he lived from time to time in Frankfurt, Paris, Lisbon, Strasbourg and Mainz. In Turkey he worked and teached at Mimar Sinan, Marmara, Istanbul Bilgi, Yıldız Technical, Galatasaray, Kırklareli, Istanbul and Sakarya University. He retired from university in 2019. He continues to be literate. Some of his books are: Art and Society at Frankfurt School (Say), Romantic Enigma (Ayrıntı), Benjamin (Edited-Say), Benjaminia: Language, History and Geography (Ayrıntı), The Mindset World of Modernization: A Tanpınar Fetishism (Kadim), Through Time Out of Time (Heretik).
