Living History
Bradáčová, Iveta ; Edith, Jeřábková (referee) ; Kvíčala, Petr (advisor)
In my thesis I deal with the topic Living history. The term “living history” is a technical term used by sociologists, it names a group of people who stylized themselves in the past. The theme of living history is very interesting to me in the terms of time blending the past with the present - at the same place at the same time happens something that commemorates the event that took place many years ago. However, these could not be an exact reenactment of copies and reconstructions of ancient events. It is always about the present moment and the personal experience of participants. Therefore we can not say that they play only the fighters because they really live it, and they mean it serious. People who attend these gatherings, basically revive non-existent or dead people. They stopped themselves in the time and they relive again in sentimental and romantic way the ancient event. For my thesis I have chosen the Battle of Lipan, that did take place in the Gothic period in the year 1434. I did not choose the real battle of Lipan, but photos of his reenactment of 2014. On the Internet ( I have found an album with photos of this event from 31.5.2014. Photos were taken probably by someone who was a member of this community because they seems to be personal ones. For example some of them were taken during a dinner with other participants. For this reason, I did not use my own photos because like a spectator I would not get so close to them. After viewing photos of the reenactment of the battle and after the visit of Marold´s panorama I was excited for the painting of the battle itself. I did many of paintings on the wall and on the papers, but later after some time I have lost the interest in repainting the picture of the battle by the photographs. I realized that in fact I paint meaningless characters in costumes and that I focus myself more on anatomical accuracy of their bodies instead of focusing on their expressions. After discovering this I knew, that I cannot continue in painting this way and that I need to change my approach. So I did return to a more detailed check of the photos and I have researched what I'm really most interested in on the photos. Already during painting, I gradually realized that I enjoy very much the ,,warriors" faces painting and catching the psychology that is hidden in their faces. While I examined the photos, I have noticed that the persons on the pictures have sympathetic expressions resembling expressions of people from the old Gothic paintings. These people are usually dressed in a simple, contemporary clothes, that is produced themselves, they eat a modest meal and they looks like a martyrs. Leaving the painting by photograph was very liberating for me, because I finally began to paint something what was not visible on the photos, but what I feel that it is hidden there. I realized that for me most interesting on my work are the today people with their lives, their actions and long-suffering expressions, they made present real dead warriors who fell in the battle of Lipan in 1434. It is the past captured in the faces of those present. And I find it incredibly interesting. After this realization, I am convinced that the best way to get closer to my fascination, I can just draw a face with present eyes and distinctive expression. There is no more need for me of painting the whole scenes from the battle.

The subject of the bachelor's thesis is a series of paintings called "Oppression", which is executed on canvas using the tempera technique. Perhaps surprisingly, realized paintings are not aimed to any depiction of oppression, but are a possible way out of the oppressive impressions and compositions present in my previous paintings. The dominant motive in the paintings is the horse and the central theme of the works is contact with horses and its sensitive and emotional impact on humans. The purpose of the work is to capture my own feelings related to spending time with horses and transfer them reliably on the painter's canvas.
The phenomenon of empty gallery
Brožka, Petr ; Rozbořil, Blahoslav (referee) ; Ingerle, Petr (referee) ; Bartlová,, Milena (referee) ; Kvíčala, Petr (advisor)
The doctoral thesis deals with the topic of exihibiting of an empty gallery. The problem of the emptiness is presented by using a prism of theory of art, semiotics and phenomenology, more precisely hermeneutics. The matter is in a relation with some remote domains, it tries to give a definition of substance and general rules by exihibiting of the emptiness in a gallery. According to one of the presented propositions the plain emptiness itself comes to be an artwork. By semantics of logic method the text is tryiing to form another proposition about specific emptiness in a gallery that generates artwork naturally. The text tries to reopen the theme of some crucial problems in conceptual art. It presents an explanation of the aplication of conceptual method to general public.

Safe places
Šavarová, Veronika ; Pospiszyl, Tomáš (referee) ; Kvíčala, Petr (advisor)
The topic of this bachelor‘s thesis is the relationship between a person and one’s space, which is interwoven with feelings of nostalgia and the need to return to the period of the author's early childhood. The work identifies with a number of approaches of several art movements in the first half of the 20th century, such as surrealism, expressionism, symbolism etc. These approaches collide in the author's work, forming a mixture of influences demonstrated together on a personal level in the resulting work. The most honest and credible manifestation of the place is deemed to be the aim of the bachelor‘s thesis. The finished work is intended to inspire viewer‘s intense and conflicting feelings. The autor finds the medium of painting to be most suitable to conveying the topic.
Back from the Future
Langová, Michaela ; Pospiszyl, Tomáš (referee) ; Kvíčala, Petr (advisor)
The cornerstone is a general view of the future as a world that is markedly different from ours. This vision of the future cannot be done due to the influence of presence. Inner inspiration is objects with unclear functions occurring in science fiction (stories Space Odyssey and AC Clark and iconic roadside picnic). Formally, the objects are inspired by different things from the world of science fiction (kryptonite, traffic alien machines from a newer version of War of the Worlds, Star Trek series and their transporters, etc.). Against this background, I am creating minimal objects with small signs of function as a testimony of traveler to the future. The basic material is a transparent silicone and LEDs.
