The general purpose of this study, based on the argument that methods are a means of cultural transmission as well as providing playing skills, is the examination of national factors in the basic level methods of flute education in Poland, Hungary and Turkey, three countries influenced by the nationalist movement, which were mentioned in Eugeniusz Towarnicki's "Szkola Na Flet", Zoltán Jeney's "Fuvolaiskola-l" and Mustafa Arı's "Yan Flüt Metodu" books. In this study, which has a descriptive research pattern, the data were obtained through content analysis and digitized and interpreted. As a result of the study, it was seen that unlike other commonly used methods, Polish, Hungarian and Turkish methods were affected by nationalist movement and they also serve as a means of cultural transmission by including folk music, national composers, scale/mode/maqam and musical meters. In the light of the determined findings, suggestions were made about which elements should be included in the methods to be created in the future.</p> 2022-05-01T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Holistence Publications https://journals.gen.tr/arts/article/view/1728 Metaphor of flesh colored object in contemporary art 2022-02-10T17:22:44+00:00 N. Fulya Asyalı Büyükerman magrititi@gmail.com <p>In contemporary art, the works, which use skin color as a surface effect that surrounds the object to produce anthropomorphic metaphors suppressing all other physical features of the body that offer a clue to identity, offers a wide-angle view of human situations by anonymizing the subject, and thus creating a transcendent expression of gender, race, ethnicity and class categories.This approach, which eliminates the distance between bodies and creates experiences such as self-reflexivity, empathy and relationality, has gained momentum since the 1980s with the widespread use of materials whose natural structure gives skin effect. In the 1990s the studies of feminist thinkers such as Judith Butler, Susan Bordo, Elizabeth Grosz, Moira Gatens, and Gail Weiss on body images and experiences in the cultural context, and anti-patriarchal and post-structuralist approaches to gender and identity issues have also enriched the thougts on the skin. Skin representations, as a product of science and medicine in the modern period in art history, take place in our time as an independent subgenre of contemporary portraits and an object of popular visual culture.In this text, which suggests that this approach creates a sub-genre that can be defined as ‘Skin Portrait’, the works of artists that visualize skin color connotations and psychological metaphors of different human situations are examined.</p> 2022-05-01T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Holistence Publications https://journals.gen.tr/arts/article/view/1755 Different experiences of migration, an interpretation on common desperation: Under the Table 2022-04-08T15:32:18+00:00 Sibel Erdenk sibelerdenk@gmail.com Özlem Belkis ozlem.belkis@deu.edu.tr <p>This study examines a play that makes the universal characteristics of the phenomenon of migration visible through the art of theater and its interpretation in another culture twenty-two years after it was written. Written by French cartoonist, screenwriter, novelist and story writer, poster and stage designer Roland Topor in 1994, Under the Table bears the traces of the immigration experience that the author did not personally experience, but that his family was exposed to. In this play, selfish Parisian bourgeois who have negative prejudices against immigrants, a poor intellectual who is devoted to universal values and has high empathy skills, and the immigrants who are compassionate, honest and good-hearted are discussed. This play, which was written in 1994, maintains its currency in 2016 and in 2022, when this study was written, because of the universal characteristics of migration. Topor's text, which was written in 14 episodes, has been transformed into 7 parts, in addition to the 5 characters in the original text, 8 parts with a choir of 11 people and songs and dances have been added. In this study, the interpretation of the text in 2016, which criticizes the image of migration and the fact that immigrants have to live in inhumane conditions, with bitter sarcasm, is presented in detail.</p> 2022-05-01T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Holistence Publications https://journals.gen.tr/arts/article/view/1769 A creation experience from theme to choreography: The process of expressing the theme of ‘Being on Journey’ in ‘Selam Olsun’ project through choreography 2022-04-21T11:55:09+00:00 Şebnem Yüksel sebyuksel@gmail.com <p>Selam Olsun is an theatre project prepared by the academicians and students of the theater department of a state university. The project was created by intertwining storytelling, poetry, dance and music composition in the light of the 13-episode text adapted from S. Eyüboğlu’s book, called Yunus Emre. Selam Olsun’s dramaturgy is based on the theme of being on a spiritual journey, which is the basis of Yunus Emre’s understanding of Sufism. This idea is expressed with a choreography that interacts with other disciplines. The choreography was created by simultaneously reflecting prominent themes of the text on both bodies and space. Improvisation, Skinner Releasing Technique and Laban Movement Analysis methods were used to ensure that the themes are internalized, developed and physically applied by the actors. It has been observed that the theme of being on a spiritual journey, which is an implicit motif in the narrative plane of the text, eventually turned into an active sensory experience within the process of choreography. This article has been written to present a roadmap to those working in this field by examining the elements of choreography in the process of revealing the main theme of the text, together with the relevant literature reviews. As a result of the study, while emphasizing the importance of using choreography in a subtle way in order to transform the theater play into a complete sensory experience, it is suggested that dance, movement and body awareness classes should be handled in a more comprehensive way both in theater plays and in acting education.</p> 2022-05-01T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Holistence Publications
