Dvizhenie (1962 - 1976): Experimental art of the group and its presentation outside the USSR
Slavíková, Kateřina ; Pech, Milan (advisor) ; Czumalo, Vladimír (referee)
Dvizhenie (1962-1976) Experimental formation of the group and its presentation outside the USSR Abstract The bachelor's thesis focuses on the Moscow art group Dvizhenie, which was formed mainly thanks to the founding member, Lev Nusberg, at the beginning of the 1960s. The group was active until 1976 and during that time the group became one of the most comprehensive and distinguished formations in Soviet art at the time, mainly due to its experimental work. The first part of the thesis is dedicated to the artistic development of the group. At the beginning, Dvizhenie drew from the Russian avant-garde of the 1920s, which shaped the first wave of kinetic art in Europe. The group's geometric works on paper gradually transfer into space. Eventually, Dvizhenie evolved in its work towards a kinetic sculpture which was experiencing a renaissance throughout and beyond Europe in the 1950s. Movement as an artistic expression led the group to experiment with cybernetics - its members combined this new technology with modern psychology focused on the perception of artworks and scenography. The group's peak was cyber theatre, which primarily wanted to engage all the audience's senses. The second part of the thesis focuses on the relationship of Dvizhenie with the totalitarian policy of the USSR. Surprisingly, the...

The topic of this diploma thesis is the Settlement of Karlovy Vary after the expulsion of the Germans. The work examines the period after the Second World War, when the German population was expelled in Czechoslovakia and subsequently settled by new inhabitants. The first part of the thesis examines the post-war situation and problems related to the settlement of the Czechoslovak border. Emphasis is placed on agricultural and industrial settlement with issued decrees. The second part of this thesis is devoted to the settlement of Karlovy Vary, which, despite all efforts, had serious problems with the lack of people interested in resettlement. The arrival of re-emigrants and minorities from foreign or neighboring states with Czechoslovakia is closely related to this issue, so this thesis will also address this topic.

Polonyiová, Veronika ; Pech, Milan (advisor) ; Czumalo, Vladimír (referee)
Illustration of Czech popular music sheet covers in the first half of the 20th century Abstract This diploma thesis focuses on the visual form of popular music sheet covers published in selected publishers in the first half of the 20th century, especially on small formats of the twenties to forties. Many Czech as well as several foreign artists influenced by various artistic tendencies took part in the artistic processing of the covers. The creation of a large part of them is closely connected with illustration, poster creation and advertising activities. Some artists have been creating covers systematically and we can find their work in several publishers, but for some this activity was only a short episode in their work. The resulting prints of music sheet covers obtained in the institutions that collect them are documented and evaluated here - especially the Music Department of the National Library and the Czech Museum of Music belonging to the National Museum in Prague. In some cases, this section also records the original illustrations stored in the Museum of Applied Arts in Prague, which were very helpful in identifying the artistic practices. It is clear from this diploma thesis that the illustrations of these sheet music, which have not been given space in the literature so far, are an important...
