- After the emergence of the concept of nudity as an approach describing the divine beauty with Ancient Greece in Western art, its evolution to another dimension with the effect of different social and historical changes over the centuries has been given through the arts of painting and sculpture, from the gradually changing art movements to the postmodern art understanding, today's concept of nudity is examined within the scope of video art. The evolution of the concept of nudity has been taken as the point to focus on, and the reasons affecting the change of the concept have been tried to be examined through art movements and social changes. From medieval ages to postmodernism, this study focuses on the concept of nudity in human forms. In postmodernist era, it focuses on video art and questions the approach of this art to the nudity. As a result, it is possible to say that video art, a psychological medium in which internal and external dialectics can be conveyed, embraced the concept of nudity with its changing perception and helped to shape this perception, which is reduced to the body as an object of consumption, within the concept of art.
