The upcoming book is an attempt to answer one of the most important problems of contemporary art; Being away from the principle of society, being caught in the trap of fancy language and complex vocabulary; The endless expansion of the realm of what is considered art and the formation of the phenomenon of "us and them" between art lovers and those unfamiliar with it.
Who is really afraid of contemporary art? The answer is a large part of the people, and this is a bitter truth that shows the failure of art to connect with society. Contemporary art and the industry surrounding it with philosophizing, museums in inhuman dimensions, specialized and difficult language, dealing with astronomical figures and expanding what is called art, have become more frightening day by day for those who are far from this story.

"Who is afraid of contemporary art?" It's a joke on the name of Edward Albee's well-known play Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? , which itself is a play on the song "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?" One of the most famous and successful animated songs is "The Three Little Pigs" by Walt Disney. The heroes of this animation are three pigs, two of them optimistically think that their straw house will protect them from the bad wolf.
The story of the play and movie "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" This is also an illusion and turning away from the reality of life; The story of an enlightened and academic couple who took refuge in fantasy and insane melancholy to escape the bitterness of their lives.
