Dissertation thesis named Towards Creative Possibilities of Theatre Management deals with various possibilities and ways enabling the development of creative potential. First of all, it focuses on individuals, next it speaks about the role of creative manager, leading people in creative teams and finally it analyses a creation and stabilization of creative organization. These four topics create a core of first four chapters of dissertation thesis. The basic method of research is a synthesis of knowledge gained from various authors in the field of creative management, culturology, economy, psychology and psychiatry, neurology, from dramaturges, directors and managers. At the same time, the work is based on author´s teaching experience at The Theatre Faculty of The Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (Production Department). Author also summarises her own experience with discussed phenomenon during her work as a manager. This dissertation thesis does not aim at exhausting above mentioned topic. On the contrary, it puts facts into new relations, it makes new connections and above all it speaks about new sources of creativity and creative ways of problem solutions especially in connection to manager´s job. The thesis also focuses on the professional role of theatre dramaturge (fifth, closing chapter is devoted to this topic). The goal of this work is to prove the usefulness and purposefulness of creative approach in the theatre management, which has positive effect on people and the whole teams and organizations. Author believes that it is effective on qualitative as well as on quantitative level. This approach could be found in a management literature but rarely it is analysed in art management sources. The basic hypothesis of authors’ doctoral research is that the awareness and usage of methods of creative approaches leads to more successful organizations, it also leads to transition from creating new thoughts towards their articulation, realisation and evaluation. This can bring the inflow of new motivated people who enjoy their jobs first of all. This way, organisation can multiply the number and the quality of submitted projects and other outputs, broaden the web of co-operators, spectators and raise the level of financial stability and good media partners response.

Petrlová, Simona ; LEDVINA, Josef (advisor) ; JANOŠČÍK, Václav (referee)
Cuteness as an affect contains a group of visual and behavioral features which are capable of producing physical or emotional reactions in the body of a subject.  Speaking of cuteness as an aesthetic category this kind of response is manipulated for commercial purposes, in the context of artistic creation or as means of self-expression.  In my thesis I will be concetrating on the concept of cuteness and its use in the field of contemporary art. First I will focus on the origin of the notion of cuteness from psychobiological, sociological and culturological point of view. I will describe briefly the origin of the english term ''cute'' and japanese term ''kawaii'' and its evolvement. Than I will concentrate on the aspects of cuteness in today's society, where it has become a tool for advancement of commercial and even political interests, which will be desrcibed on the  specific examples.   Subsequently I will concentrate on the aesthetic aspects of cuteness in the context of contemporary artistic statements including sociological and lorenzian (biological) viewpoints. I will also describe these aesthetics and its usage in the field of hi-tech technologies. Cuteness can be differentiated into many subcategories (e.g. ''creepy-cute'', ''torturer-cute'', ''sexy-cute'', etc.) when speaking of its aesthetics. These will be briefly described and showed in both the theoretical and exemplary sections of the thesis. As a whole the thesis will also lead to the discussion of the artistic positions of particular artists working with cuteness aesthetics in their art production.

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...

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?
