The International ILEM Summer School in Turkey 2023 aims to explore the significant challenges faced by the Islamic world. To achieve this objective, the ILEM platform intends to bring together researchers, academics, and artists from around the globe. Individuals from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply for this internationally renowned summer school. The theme of the ILEM summer school revolves around reevaluating art and aesthetics in the Islamic world through conceptual, theoretical, and practical approaches within a socio-political framework. The summer school seeks to portray Islamic art in relation to tradition and mystical experiences within the realms of intellect and artistic expression.
IISM 2023 seeks to shed light on artistic expressions that surpass biased and conditional forms. It aims to explore the possibility of generating aesthetic formulas between the extremes of cultural schizophrenia and acculturation during the Middle Ages. By respecting cultural differences, the summer school aims to construct an aesthetic bridge between the distant past and the future. Participants will gain insight into the connection between aesthetic values and the perception of beauty, which have been passed down through the ages and are manifested in various art forms today. The program analyzes different themes within its conceptual framework, including innovation, tradition, classical art, and perennial wisdom, thereby enriching the theoretical interpretations of Islamic aesthetics from a metaphysical standpoint.
The fully funded summer school offers theoretical discussions on the latest theories surrounding Islamic arts, exploring their origins and content. It also examines Islamic theories in the context of contemporary issues, such as digitalization and the harmonization of traditional values with contemporary interpretations of art, based on aesthetic principles. Furthermore, the program delves into the socio-political implications, examining the treatment of Islamic aesthetics through the lens of social life. It addresses major issues such as propaganda, cultural diplomacy, enculturation, and environmental concerns, among others.
The international summer school in 2023 covers a wide range of topics, including the theoretical framework of Islamic aesthetics, the mystical interpretation and Qur’anic roots of Islamic arts, the perception of beauty, truth, and goodness in Islamic aesthetics, the significance of sacred symbolism and geometry in Islamic art, a critical reevaluation of Ilm-al-Jamal and Ihsan in Islamic art, Islamic aesthetics from a Western perspective, methodologies in Islamic arts, the role of art in knowledge transmission, the essence of Islamic arts, the Islamization of art in the post-colonial world, the dynamics between innovation and conservatism, Islamic arts in the digital realm, art in everyday life, the notions of beauty and pleasure in consumer culture, the relationship between Islamic art and society, cultural and environmental consciousness, Islam and the clash of civilizations, art as a means of cultural diplomacy and political legitimacy, the dissemination of aesthetic propaganda globally, and cultural nationalism through Islamic arts.
