THE DİALECTİC OF POWER AND ART

Abdurrahman GÜNEŞ

Art is not a reflection of the nature, it is the act that complements the incomplete of nature, fills the void in the universe, matures the creation, and achieves its ultimate beauty. Art is not imitation, criticism of imitation. Nature replicates itself continuously through DNA. Art is the idea that breaks this imitation chain. Art; is the last color of the sky, the last shape of the earth, the last leaf of the flower, the last light of the sun, the last wing of the butterfly, the last stone of the mountain, the last drop of the sea, the last point of the human being. Art, has to be distant up to power. Therefor, maybe this is why art and the artist are located far from the main roads. Foucault's concept of subject-power in the context of knowledge raised the need to reinterpret value strings of art. The power created by the subject emerges from an almost impossible equation to break that the subject created by the power is creating each other. Where does art stand in this equation? The relation of art with knowledge, subject and power, art brings to mind a fictional power the possibility of the artist being a fictional subject. If we consider art and artist within their own dynamics, it is seen that every new criticism that language and image evolve to a point imposes its own fiction. In fact, a second, third, fourth highway is raised and even the first carriageway becomes uninhabited compared to others. This study includes an attempt to investigate the dialectic of power in the context of ontology and art.
