ID - IDENTITY (UN) KNOWN (time specific in-cognito in-stant id - entity)
Janečková, Zuzana ; Babák, Petr (referee) ; Rozbořil, Blahoslav (referee) ; Chamonikolasová, Kaliopi (referee) ; Ruller, Tomáš (advisor)
This dissertation focuses on va-rious strategies of presenting identity in contemporary art and the current trend of forming its mutations and mystifications. It deals with approaches such as when the name of an artist is absent from his performance, various forms of concealment, and the subsequent detection of an artist. The term “anonymity” is not examined as its mere literal definition, but it subsequently forks into other related meanings. The introduction points at our daily meetings with anonymity, the condensation of information stemming from all spheres including the sphere of visual arts. The subject of the dissertation is explored though the influence of media operating at a given time (time-specific) and a given place (site-specific): here and now. The text primarily deals with the phenomenon of being “anonymous”. While examining this topic, the period starting with the 1990s is discussed and supplemented by examples from the history of Slovak, Czech, and international visual art with extensions to literature, music and film. It closely focuses on the following four bi-polar forms of anonymity: celebrity / anonymous artist, art groups / collective exhibitions, street art / net art, signature art / untitled art. These terms are defined and organized into dictionary entries (containing both names of artists and definitions of terms). Comprising of over two hundred words, a hybrid thematic dictionary has been produced. It consists of already existing definitions taken from the Slovak and Czech mutations of Wikipedia which are quoted with consistence with each entry. The collaboration with Wikipedia is based on subsequent addition of the author’s definitions and thus supplements it with missing information from the sphere of visual arts. The text also deals with a current trend of renaming as a symbol of a hegemonic tool of power. The terms a.k.a., name, monogram, nick, and pseudonym are explored.

(Now what?)
Šťastná, Kateřina ; Chamonikolasová, Kaliopi (referee) ; Gabriel, Michal (advisor)
The topic of the bachelor thesis is touch. The work builds on the fascination with touch, analyzes how different contents can be associated with a gesture that symbolizes something very subtle, fleeting and even fleeting, but at the same time can elicit a very intense and calmly long-lasting response. The output of the bachelor's thesis is a figural sculpture, the prototype of which is the author herself at the age of ten. By depicting a girl's body at an age when it is physically beginning to transform into a woman's body, I ephasizis the touch in its inconsistency, perhaps subtly uncertain the audience and raise questions focused on what the touch means to us.

The doctoral thesis deals with the topic of exihibiting empty gallery space. The purpose is to clarify the specifics that accompany the exhibited empty gallery and to define the essence of more general patterns of exposition in the gallery space. Doctoral thesis also presents the special simple void that generates art itself. Finally, the text reopens a polemic within the institutional theory of art. Doctoral thesis criticizes the established terminology related with exposition of the empty gallery.

Visual Art in the Housing Estates of Brno (1945–1989)
Kořínková, Jana ; Bartlová, Milena (referee) ; Hrůša, Petr (referee) ; Chamonikolasová, Kaliopi (advisor)
With special attention being paid to the development in the city of Brno, the dissertation focuses on the issue of applying artworks in Czechoslovak architecture after World War II. The main research questions – Why were in Czechoslovakia after 1945 artworks again integrated in architecture and what strategies were applied in the case of the newly built housing estates in the city of Brno? – are answered in two successive sections. First, the institutional background for application of art in architecture in the light of the events in Brno (1945–1993) is examined; the closing part is devoted to three case studies that illustrate local development in the period of socialist realism, creative release of the1960s and political normalization. The aim is to highlight the complexity of the examined subject and refute a popularly handed down conviction that integration of artworks into architecture in the period of socialism was motivated exclusively by the communist propaganda, and to show that the attempts to create a synthesis of art and architecture were also based both on earlier theoretical considerations about the educational function of art and its effect on humans and the need to improve poor economic situation of artists after World War II.
Performance Art as a Border Form of Artistic Expression
Vatulíková, Andrea ; Daněk, Josef (referee) ; Havlík, Vladimír (referee) ; Chamonikolasová, Kaliopi (advisor)
While taking into account the field of study of performing arts, I assume that the category called „performing arts“ underwent many reforms in the 20th century, making it almost impossible to set clear boundaries between theatre, dance and performance art. Therefore I deal with their common ground that I call the zero point and that allows me to explore means of expression of human body and also time – space dimension of live action. The zero point is located in the pelvic region of the body and it is the center of stability, balance and life enegry. In my dissertation I focus on the analysis of physical trainings that work with the zero point in theater, dance and performance arts. Primary output of this work is then analysis of physicality as culturally encoded construct and the practical part of disseration is focused on the realisation of the point zero symposium.
