Course Objectives The course aims to introduce the history of Turkish visual culture from the earliest days of the Ottoman Empire up to the present; to make students familiar with the most important concepts, objects and figures of this history; to present a critical approach to the study of Turkish culture
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • will be able to develop ideas related to the complex layers of meaning and historical particularity evident in the existing historic artifacts.
  • will be able to evaluate significant artifacts and art movements, even into the contemporary era, that form the cultural heritage of Turkey.
  • will be able to develop their own ideas related to historic Turkish cultural movements within a broader regional and international context.

Course Description The course will focus on three phases of Turkish culture. The Ottoman era - from its beginning, showing various influences such as Persian Selcuk and Byzantine - up to the effective dissolution of the empire including late court artistic expressions. The Modernist period - examining the influence of internationalist styles in the 19th and 20th centuries from the development of a Turkish impressionist movement, through the republican period and up to the late formalism of the 60s and 70s. The contemporary period - examining the advent of conceptual art in Turkey, the development of contemporary art institutions and the manner in which major contemporary issues have influenced current art practice in Turkey.
