Abstract

The ongoing debate on what should be called art has been consistent throughout history.


The searches for the meaning in ‘Aesthetics’ have been in need of contents which are to be constantly redefined due to the interdisciplinary transition.


Although today  the term  ‘Contemporary Art’ sounds as if a description  clearly comprehended, it has become the subject of the fervent debates about its boundaries, existential questions and even if it being definable.


Unquestionably, the movement that determined the transition to contemporariness in Arts started with Duchamp’s hanging the ‘Urinal Stock’ upside down on the wall. The idea that the object already available can be selected and possessed by the artist, led to the multifaceted debate of the concept and content of  the ‘aesthetics ‘ .  Considering that fact, many disciplines including philosophy and psychology in their content are jointed to art based works.


Recently, many artists declare that their main issues are not the final art works but in fact the artistic processes. Some of the works that have been produced under the term Contemporary Art, although tend to reflect the current cultural and political atmosphere, includes suspicion and irony in terms of its aesthetically studied content.
