Learning outcomes
The seminar represents a discussion forum reflecting the position of the photography in contemporary visual art, events on Czech artistic scene, as well as the local social-cultural context. Generally, the seminar covers the period between the 1990's and 2010's, which is characteristic for entrance of so-called new media, transdisciplinarity, and multiculturalism connected with the ongoing globalization and deepening civilization and religious divergences often leading to a disharmonic social-political situation. Reflection of these trends is concurrently examined and documented on development of a) Western culture (decomposition of the sovereign position of the Euro-American cultural frame) b) Visual culture of Central and Eastern Europe, including examination of the Czech context c) The coming generation of Asian, African, and Latin American artists
The student can perform a deeper analysis of the Czech contemporary visual art in the context of visual culture in Central and Eastern Europe after 1980. The student is able to understand individual artistic forms. They are able to interpret their work in the context of other works on similar topics. The student has a notion of the transformations on the art scene with an emphasis on photography and new media, and can write a scholarly text on a given topic. They are also able to compile an assigned topic in the form of an oral presentation.
