Postmodernism, a concept created after 1970, refers to the category of artistic production. Postmodernism has emerged with new art forms such as deconstruction. Computer-based artistic productions, new media and conceptual art studies can be given as examples of these production categories. Conceptual art wanted to demolish many things and come to terms with the past. Conceptual art The artist, who made a wholesale criticism of Western culture and rebelled against all kinds of artistic authority and monopoly understanding, started to make art with a thought that he adopted with his heart. In this study, Mehmet Kavukcu, who created his works in the context of conceptual art, and Füsun Onur, one of Turkey's first female sculptors, are discussed. Kavukcu reflects the waste generation, environmental pollution issues that negatively affect natural life, issues such as waste, extravagance, violence, terrorism, death and eternity, nature and the city, historical architecture, climate, refugee problem, city structuring in his works. We see that he buys from the problems he encounters in daily life and from the objects around him to solve these problems. This study aims to give information about the dynamic points and movement capabilities of today's Turkish art. In the research, six works of Mehmet Kavukcu's five Füsun Onur were examined with a critical approach and the thought, essence and form that formed the background of the works were examined.
