The lord of the postmodernity: Plagiarism

Today's art, which is dominated by postmodernism, evolves into a completely different sense of art that reverses the system over its own weapon and changes all the known values of art. Postmodern art, which focuses on questions about what is the thing that is art, canalises itself into citations and compilations which turn into imitation, appropriation, pastiche or plagiarism. While postmodernism turns into a kind of citation and compilation aesthetics; imitation, which is at the centre of the questions related to what is the thing that is art, becomes the strategy of postmodernism. The article titled ‘The Lord of the Postmodernity: Plagiarism’ is about the transformation of an art object into an art material or the re-presentation of it in today's sense of art which extends from imitation, appropriation and pastiche to plagiarism.

THE Lord of The Postmodernity Plagiarism, Postmodernitenin efendisi İntihal
Işıtman, Ödül (2017-06-29)
Today’s art, which is dominated by postmodernism, evolves into a completely different sense of art that reverses the system over its own weapon and changes all the known values of art. While the limits of perception are pushed in a timeless and spaceless language, answers are sought to the questions which are posed in almost all areas of real and virtual.

Autonomy of artistic field : the case study of İstanbul
Aydın, Ceren Can; Mücen, Barış; Department of Sociology (2013)
This thesis critically analyzes the dynamics wherein the artistic field- the art world per se possessing both 'glocal' and 'universal' attributes- has been constructed as an autonomous field within the discourses produced about art. The research focuses on some of the moments during which the field, as becoming an 'institution' inside the framework of modern state paradigm, has been imbricated and freed from social history by designating some of the fundamental arguments about its epistemological, historica...
Eğitimin Estetik Süreç Olarak Yorumu Ve Mimarlık Eğitimi

Studies in perception, anthropology, and the arts of the primitive people, have destroyed the old surrogate theories about art and aesthetics, and have helped to break the boundaries between daily life, education and art in the 20th Century. Jean Piaget's studies in child perception, Geştalt psychology, philosophers like Bergson and Whitehead, John Dewey with his revolutionary ideas on education, and Eric Havelock, scholar in preliterate Greek societies, are just a few among the many sources that prove the ...
The digitally reconstructed architectural object in the age of post-orthography
Beril, Önalan; Gürsel Dino, İpek; Yoncacı Arslan, Pelin; Department of Architecture (2020-8)
In his much-quoted essay The Work of Art In The Age of Mechanical Reproduction, Walter Benjamin discusses that original artworks have an inherent aura and emphasizes the importance of material authenticity, arguing that mechanical reproduction leads to the loss of that auratic and iconic qualities. Within this context of the materiality argument that fails to consider the values that might emerge as a result of the digital technology of reproduction, it is difficult to redefine the digitally reconstructed o...
