In general, modern art has emphasized that art should be purified from folk, life and functional practices related to life, as well as representation. The idea of purity and universality, which the West nurtured within the scope of modernism, has turned into an imperialist passion over time, and its reflection in art has been a kind of cultural imperialism. Naturally, the separation of art, which is defined through Western aesthetics, from folk, life and craft has also evoked its separation from non-Western aesthetics, non-Western cultures, and traditional and decorative elements specific to these cultures. The distinctions defended by modernism for the sake of the ideals of purity and universality were met with skepticism, especially in the postmodern era. During this period, many approaches emerged that reacted to the taboos and cultural diffusionism of modernism. The Pattern and Decoration movement, which has the characteristic structure of postmodern thought, has been a typical example of revolt against the Western hierarchy. In this research, it is aimed to shed light on the Pattern and Decoration movement, which is perceived as a cultural resistance against the distinctions imposed by the Western hierarchy. As a research method, document analysis was used within the scope of data collection technique and descriptive analysis was used within the scope of data analysis technique. The subject was supported by the artworks of artists representing the Pattern and Decoration movement. In the light of the data obtained in the research, it has been determined that the Pattern and Decoration movement, which focuses on the cultural, racial, social and class distinctions that came with modernism, is an approach to questioning the Western hierarchy. It has been revealed that the artists of the movement resisted the ethnocentric attitudes of the West and Western aesthetics through cultural diversity. At the same time, it was pointed out that the artists sensitively touched on the problem of identity, and concept of the other, which can be read with Western aesthetic hierarchies. It has been determined that the movement, which emphasizes the importance of cultural diversity and social differences in art, and the inseparability of art and life, generally references non-Western cultures and the aesthetics of these cultures. It has been determined that the patterns and decorative elements unique to non Western cultures and the arts of these cultures provided a suitable media for artists to examine all the rejections of the Western aesthetics. Attention was drawn to the difficult nature of the struggle of the Pattern and Decoration movement, which is celebrated as one of the first postmodern examples of resistance to Western aesthetic hierarchies.</p> 2022-08-01T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Holistence Publications Tanbûrî, Composer Zeki Mehmed Ağa and Analysis of Hisârbûselik Saz Semâisi registered as Zeki Mehmed Ağa 2022-07-12T19:50:10+03:00 İsmail Yörükçüoğlu <p>In this study, the life of composer, tanbûrî Zeki Mehmed Ağa and the Collection of Muallim İsmail Hakkı Bey, the Hisârbûselik Saz Semâi, whose composer was determined to be registered as Zeki Mehmed Ağa in the book no 269.

As a result of the classification, it has been determined that Hisârbûselik Saz Semâisi, which is included in the book no. 269 of the Collection of Muallim İsmail Hakkı Bey, is not among the Works of Zeki Mehmed Ağa that survived to the present day.

The comparison was carried out on the three copies accessible together with the Muallim İsmail Hakkı Bey Collection copy, the Cüneyd Kosal Copy and the notation in the TRT repertoire. Before the examination, the Hamparsum notation system was introduced. The accessible copies were examined in terms of whether there were differences in terms of tone, tune, transition, pitch and weighing on the created template.
