After the industrial revolution, many "industrial cities" have been quickly begun to form in many parts of the world, especially in Britain and continental Europe with increased production volume and due to the emerging work force needs,. These newly-formed industrial cities have, over time, with increasing labor requirements, it began to take on a large scale migration from rural areas and has become a giant metropolis. Parallel to this, the immigrant population that started to be form in big cities, whereas "individuals" are far from the adoption of new life of city which it is resulted to feeling themselves as alone in society. The philosophical movements such as "individualism" and "existentialism" have emerged in order to find a solution to this loneliness of the person who has begun to disappear in the masses. Subsequently the concept of mass culture was existed at the result of the "extraordinary groups" formed within the society, As a consequence of social deconstruction and separation from dominant culture, the mass culture or popular culture is existed. In this sense, it would be appropriate to look for the basic dynamics of the Arabesque culture, which emerged as a popular culture in Turkey, for the first time in the Tulip Age.
