Learning outcomes
This course systematically deals with both world and Czech visual culture over past for decades. Comprehensive presentation combined with interactive programme of seminars represents a survey of current tendencies and thought streams in visual art, including reflection of the ascending postmodern art (both abroad and at home), as well as the dominance of photography, videoart, and "new media" in the 1990's and at the threshold of the 21st century.
The student is capable of active discussion on history of visual arts from 1945 to the present. They are able to analyze the art trends and movements specific for the period, to interpret their main representatives and key works. The student can write a scholarly text on a given topic using the comparative method. They are able to understand individual artistic forms and to apply them in practice when interpreting their work in the context of other works on similar topics.
