“The Roles of Museums in the Writing of Art History”

Doç. Dr. Ayşe Köksal (Özyeğin University)

The significant roles that museums play in the writing of art history and the establishment of the canon are indisputable. As the museums in Turkey have failed to seize this role, they were unable to even establish their presence in the history of art. In this seminar, the museums of painting and sculpture in Turkey, their problems, and the consequences of their absence in the writing of art history will be discussed.

Ayşe Köksal

Ayşe Hazar Köksal works at the Department of Industrial Design of Özyeğin University, Faculty of Architecture and Design. Köksal obtained her bachelor’s degree from the Department of History of Boğaziçi University in 1999, and her master’s degree with a dissertation titled “Reading Museums Through Technology” from The International Master Programme: European Studies of Society, Science and Technology in 2002. She has received a doctoral degree from the Department of Art History of Istanbul Technical University, with a thesis titled “Istanbul Painting and Sculpture Museum in the Process of the Institutionalization of Art”. Köksal, who has published articles on contemporary art, museums, biennials and cultural institutions in several art journals, including Genç Sanat, Artist, and Sanat Dünyamız, is a member of the International Association of Art Critics (AICA), and College Arts Association. Köksal has published chapters in international and national books, and presented papers at international and national conferences and symposia.
