Art's historical progress developed parallelly with human beings'. This progress composition that has moved in equality or with a slight of distance has exhibited behaviours inequality by far. Art which is human creation has reached its present state in accordance with arguments that has come from past to present and criticizements as a subjective perspective reflection. Art which has the common memory quality of cognitive and affective world, has taken an important part in shaping the features of the periods it has lived in so far particularly in sociological, psychological and economical aspects. Art's perception creating quality in general on society and proprietarily on individuals, has steered art to associate with potency and potency with art. Potency's nature to propagate it's effectiveness on any layers on society is in quality that supports this association of art and potency paradoxically. Art and potency relation which is an association type, beside the obligatory harmony seems as the arena that hosts the oppositions in which mutual tensions are experienced too. The conceptional content of potency phenomenon, beside it's not to be limited on one perspective line and at the same time potency's forms's, as traditional qualities such as power, authority; the necessity to be completed, it's reaching a state that produces itself too has caused potency and it's forms to variate the association style too. Power of modern world to shape concepts and using them, it's ability to direct the social building progreses, also it's "legitimacy" to collapse what does not meet the era's necessity has put on a new dimenson to the contradictory historical association of potency and art.
