Displacements: Modern and Contemporary Art and the Domestic
Çetinkaya, Aslı (2003) Displacements: Modern and Contemporary Art and the Domestic. [Thesis]
This thesis investigates and argues for instances in which art and spatial, existential and economic meanings of the domestic can be thought to communicate. In the first part, it introduces and discusses philosophical works which consider and examine implications of the domestic, a historical study of public/private division and certain categorisations of Kantian aesthetics, in order to provide a research context. It focuses on particular works, movements and styles from modern art. The rest of the thesis studies contemporary art works in three groups which are defined according to the disposition of the relationships of art and domestic suggested by those works. This categorization is mainly to propose ways to trace this relationship among the heterogeneity of genres and interests of post-1960s art productions. This thesis attempts to argue that the relationships between art and the domestic is characterised by displacements of the referential frames within which these terms are usually defined and understood.
