Assoc. Prof. Dr. Erdoğan Ergün: "We can see those who work in the field of art as mediators of social improvement"
Referring to the ongoing discussions about whether art is realized for sake of society or for sake of art, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Erdoğan Ergün says that the words of the artist Ayla Algan "Art is actually for hard times" are the winners of this discussion. Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ergün says, "With the start of the normalization process, life is revived, we can see those who work in the art fields as mediators of social improvement."
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Erdoğan Ergün, regarding the exhibition exclusively prepared for the Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts, said: “Considering the necessity of the healing and transformative power of the art and art environment, which already has a fragile structure, we have made preparations for our exhibition for February in order to be visible and reach the masses, by realizing our artistic productions under the psychology of uncertainty and constraint created by the pandemic.”
