Learning outcomes
The subject deals with forming a theoretical background in order to be able to express implementation of meanings within visual arts. Therefore, it is focused on interdisciplinary overlaps within the visual arts as well. A piece of art and its meaning are negotiated in every social act. Thus the two are formed as a part of a specific cultural region. Although in laic conceptions culture usually means a specific, independent and sole field, we feel that culture is rather a variable social construction, a non-hierarchic and complex "hypertext", whose typical features are instability and openness, which follows from the variable context derived from its social and communication functions. It is a system of characters that is being actively reformed, and it is incorporated in a determination process in which function and interactive connections between specific symbolic systems are included.
The gained capabilities constitute an encompassment and an aquirement of knowledge and experience in the given field of study, they result from a concrete annotation of the subject and are aimed at a profile´s fulfilment of the graduate of the given field of study.
