In this thesis titled "Artistic expression of conspicuous consumption", the concepts of "consumption and showing off" are examined. In this context, the emergence of the concept of consumption and the relationship between the concept of need and belief systems are discussed in the first chapter. The emergence of mass production with the developing technology in the 21st century has changed the definition of the concept of consumption and revealed the places of consumption. The person who is added to mass consumption experiences problems of belonging and identity together with the individualization of modern people. People, who are becoming copies of each other and whose consumption habits are quite similar to each other, have changed and become alienated from themselves. In the second part of the research, the works of artists who have studies on consumption and conspicuous consumption in contemporary art practices are included. Contrary to modern art being done with an innovative and artistic concern, today's artists are critically approaching the way of life of the society. In the capitalist world surrounded by commodities, the change experienced as conspicuous consumption turns art into a commodity has been examined. In this context, the 3rd chapter is the consumption expressed by personal practices and the conspicuous consumption by dealing with ceramic applications.
