Title: The second life of Zdeněk Nejedlý in Czech historiography and culture Author: Mgr. Václav Nájemník Supervisor: doc. PhDr. Ivana Čornejová, Csc. Department: The History and History Didactics Department Keywords: Zdeněk Nejedlý, second life, methodology, reception, historiography, culture, communism, totalitarianism, literature, art, Bedřich Smetana, Alois Jirásek Abstract: The following dissertation deals with the "second life" of Czech historian, musicologist, reviewer and politician Zdeněk Nejedlý (1878-1962). Its aim is not to elaborate a new biography, but to describe and analyse the influence of this personality on Czech historiography and culture during the communist totalitarian system. His influence is usually perceived as very strong, but seems to have changed over time, and moreover weakened. An important topic will also be the development of the attitude of historians, writers and other cultural personalities to the personality and work of Zdeněk Nejedlý in the context of Czech history in the second half of the twentieth century. The purpose of the work is to show that the personality of Zdeněk Nejedlý is not the only negative factor that worked for society, but that he himself participated actively in the creation of this image. Finally, it also appears that the "second life" of some of...

Cultural Aspects in the development of the new "German Mentality" after the year of 1945
Germany was, after 1945, a defeated, blitzed country occupied by four world powers. Fifty years later, we now know Germany as one of the most economically powerful countries in Europe. Economic and political development is a part of many other theses written on this similar topic. The main concept of my work is the influence of culture and the cultural life of ordinary people in post-war Germany. I was focusing on the arts which citizens encountered daily; for example advertisement, billboards or political campaigns and their influence on the people living in Germany. I also included, which media was used in certain situations and what information was dispersed. A large share of the overall image of Germany certainly has the architecture of individual cities. Many buildings were destroyed and had to be reconstructed or even rebuilt. In the following part, I worked with memoires of witnesses. This included narratives of ordinary men, their feelings, everyday problems, and various ways of solving them - all of these credibly show situations and the state of mind in post-war Germany. In another section, I focused on the tales of people, who lived through their childhood in post-war Germany. In a later segment I dealt mainly with soldiers, who were imprisoned during war in prison camps and their circumstances and lives?

Art and reality
Barabášová, Magda ; Hogenová, Anna (advisor) ; Fleischerová, Andrea (referee)
This bachelor thesis The Art and reality to analyse selected philosophical sources concerning the problem of the artistic reflection of reality, their mutual confrontation and, also, questions related to them which arose after focusing the artwork on the idea, as being stated by the author. Moreover, it tries to clarify the question of the genesis of the artwork as the sensory object and the question of the dialogue between an artwork and a recipient. The initial sources for the analysis were the Plato's Republic, Aristotle's Poetics, Kant's Critique of Judgement, and Hegel's Aesthetics. Although the selected sources come from the former philosophy, they are being reinterpreted, and associated with different artworks throughout the history of art, also concerning the modern art phenomenon. Regarding objectives of the artwork, the highest objective has been ascertained as the good, and the idea of simulating the sensorial world has been refuted. The technical aspect of the artwork seems to be a mere tool of creation. The modern art has already questioned the significance of the technical aspect as the highest value by its conceptual tendencies. From the perspective of recognizing through the artwork, a new possibility of cognition arises - the anamnesis. Rather, it is finding the existing content of...

The bachelor project focuses on the phenomenon of the Burda style magazine, which for more than 50 years has been advertising to its readers about pattern making, along with tips and tricks. This allows the readers to fill the wardrobe of current trends that they should be able to make themselves In this project, I chose one specific issue from 07/17 magazine, which I transferred from patterns provided with the material needed according to the template and workflow. I kept the original sewing method using the orientation map provided by the designers (using a silk screen), which forms the design of the whole collection. The aim is, on the one hand, to test the functionality and the practicality of the offered dresses in the magazine, but at the same time emphasis is put on the quality of craftsmanship. According to the popularity of the magazine, this quality still has its visible place in the fashion industry. How? What is this heading towards? Does the social artefact of this confection still make sense in this era?
Responses of Spanish Civil War in Propaganda Art in Czechoslovakia
Spanish civil war was with no doubt a conflict which affected people around the world , including artists from Czechoslovakia. In my thesis I try to describe the significant influence of the war on some politically interrested Czechoslovak artists, and to present this influence on meaning and visual form of their works. International politics and art context in Europe between the World Wars caused sympathy of many progressive and avantgarde artists of that time towards Spanish antifascist republicans. These artists attemted to actively change or influence the events in Spain via their art and works. Relationships between the most active Czechoslovak artists, and their motivation, was strongly connected to their political beliefs and views (related to the situation in Spain, based on which fraction they supported), more than during any previous time period. In this cause we can find side by side liberal democrat Josef Čapek, 19th century anarchist Stanislav Kostka Neumann or Antonín Pelc, the propaganda star of Czechoslovak communist era after the year 1948. This broad coalition against fascism corresponded to spanish People's front. The main issues of my thesis are political and historical context of civil war, social situation in Europe, Spain and Czechoslovakia, meaning of chosen works and also formal signs, mainly because the form is usually influenced by the unstable 30s and progress of dictatorships in Europe as well.
