In the process of globalization , Orient has followed Occident and works of art has been westernized. Hence modern art only has been commodity estimated by economic value. It is important to look back Oriental thought thinking much of harmony in the materialistic contemporary world. In this thesis, coexistence of 'to be' and 'not to be' esthetics thinking much of harmony of contents and form is investigated in the Oriental thoughts. Coexistence of to be and not to be esthetics is Oriental esthetics thinking much of harmony of contents and form. 'Not to be' is reason, principle of universe, and unlimited power. 'Not to be' is psychological element. Chinese artists want to describe 'not to be, in the works of art and that has raised the values of them. But it is not until we can recognize 'to be' that we can refer 'not to be'. we must not make a mistake of forgetting importance of 'to be' due to overestimating 'not to be'. In fact, problem of modern art is to forget 'to be' by resorting to 'not to be' in the premise of high level psychological world. Because some people has ignored 'to be' by resorting to metaphysical reason, absurd works of arts has been widespread. Hence in this time to look back Chinese coexistence of 'to be' and 'not to be' esthetics will be the clue for recognizing problem of modern art.
