How should we analyze artistic applications and artistic projects with social contents generated in different spaces based on a process, involving collectivism in collaboration with numerous social layers and fractions? To what extent is it possible to comprehend artistic applications shaped by different geographical-political conditions, institutional backgrounds, social structure properties and different urban dynamics 'externally'? The 'Public Sphere and Contemporary Art' project which originated from these questions brought together numerous artists, critics and thinkers from different geographies and tried to investigate common concerns, methodologies and pursuits in these kinds of public art works that are popular nowadays.
