Looking at the history of aesthetics and cultural anthropology in relation to art, the following can be said.

  1. Beauty and arts have no essence, so the question is when they are constructed.
  2. The question of what is the system that turns objects into art is closely connected to criticizing the asymmetrical power structures associated with colonial policy.
  3. In this practice of institutional criticism, the boundaries between art and things like art continue to be redefined. In this context, the relationship between the artist, the art, and the viewer (enjoyer) emerges as an issue.

Therefore, by criticizing the system between the artist, the art, and the viewer, the works and exhibitions serve as a device to show the time when beauty and arts are constructed.
