Learning outcomes
The seminar studies the developing relation of the photography medium to other forms of visual art and their coexistence since "fine art photography" originated (with emphasis on the trends in the 1990's and the beginning of the 21st century). The course also reflects the coming of digital technologies in the last quarter of the 20th century and on the threshold of the 21st century, both in their static and dynamic forms. The seminars anatomize the takeup of disputable dominance of all forms of artistic expression connected with them. This development is declared based on an analysis of important international exhibition events, as well as significant author's approaches. The seminar as well deals with social, political and economic patterns at the turn of the millennium determining the contentual component of artworks of this period; special attention is given to development of Czech and Central European art and the Czech artistic scene.
