Seminar
Contemporary Art and Art Theory

Speaker: Seda Yavuz
About the Seminar: The social structure and artistic production will be examined starting from the 19th Century and Modernism will be discussed with the selected examples. In particular, we will look at the propositions and analysis methods of the 20th Century art theorists about this new ‘reconstruction process’ and the latter will be illustrated and further explained by studying examples of trends and movements. We will also observe the foundation basis of the 20th Century art productions and we will examine art produced in our days based on aesthetical and ethical values.
