"Deconstruction"concept was introduced in the 1960s by Jacques Derrida. In simple terms, Derrida criticizes “Structuralism” theory and understanding of this theory’s text or language with this concept.
According to Derrida, structuralism that reducing everything a structure like language, ignores what is unconscious in textual discourse and eliminates the difference. In this sense, structuralism is closely related to transcendent approach of western thought system to human, history and the culture. This thought system that reduces multidimensionality of existence to singularity is based on numerous binary oppositions like mind/emotions, nature/culture, male/female etc. The first concept has usually dominated to the second concept and the difference has been organized from over the logic of the hierarchy with pairs of this concept.
Even if indirectly, Derrida's this thoughts has effected the feminist thought. Taking into account this relationship and interaction, firstly, in this study has been looked for an answer to this question "what is deconstruction". Feminist theory and the effect and importance of this theory on art has been explained with related images.
