Albert Speer as an utopian urbanist? The Plan for the Rebuilding of Berlin in Comparison with The Radiant City by Le Corbusier
Rambousek, Filip ; Mikulová, Soňa (advisor) ; Pelánová, Anita (referee)
During the first half of the 20th century several urban concepts, based on criticism of the cities of that time, had been formulated. Their purpose was to carry out a social change by the means of the change of the physical environment. The plans for the rebuilding of Berlin were produced at the same time as The Radiant City by Le Corbusier, which serves as a model of the above-mentioned concepts. The author is using a comparative method to find out whether it is even possible in general, and if yes, then also to what extent, to consider Speer's plans for the rebuilding of Berlin one of the urban utopias represented here by The Radiant City. The thesis itself is based on thorough analysis of both projects from the perspective of functionality, as well as their ideological roots and political and other goals. To include all possible factors that could have influenced the development of the plans, there is also space dedicated to the biographies of the two men and to the circumstances under which the plans were developed given the social and political situation.

Mojžíš, Radek ; Pelánová, Anita (advisor) ; Šafařík, Petr (referee)
This bachelor thesis examines a role of a cultural policy during 1933 and 1937 and its influence on Fine arts. It describes a link between a political power and culture. The thesis itself focuses not only on indiviual acts, but also presumptions creating National socialist cultural politics. The thesis consists of two main parts. The first introduces changes in society and art scene of Weimar Republik. The crucial moment was the Great Depression in 1929 and subsequent radicalization influencing both a society and culture. The rising influence later peaked in nazi's participation in Thuringian governemnt which enabled first attempts to regulate culture. The second part decribes the period after Hitler was appointed Reich Chancellor. First bills affecting culture were passed and process of Gleichschaltung started. It also focuses on a role of institutions, associations and Hitler himself as cultural policy makers. Their main target was to eliminate modern art, which manifested in organizing a defamatory exhibition Entartete Kunst in 1937. At the same time Great German Art exhibition was held. Its main goal was to introduce artists of a new regime. In spite of these efforts, an attempt of creating new national socialist art failed.
Degenerate Art" and the Reflexion of the Great War in Works of Otto Dix and George Grosz
Procházková, Veronika ; Zelená, Alena (advisor) ; Pelánová, Anita (referee)
The most dominant features of the last century are without a doubt the two world wars, which became a subject for creations of many artists. The First World War also known as the Great War is a theme of many works of literature, which are up to now ranked as bestsellers. In contrast, the war-terrors on the canvases of German modernists are not as popular. "Degenerate Art" or "Entartete Kunst" is an important period in the history of art and the Degenerate Art Exhibition 1937 in Munich became one of the landmarks and also one of the most visited and also controversial exhibitions of all time. The boom of expressionisms at the beginning of the century and altogether the evolution of modern art presents an interesting antipole to the political transformation in Germany. On the one side, there is a new and for many misunderstood way of painting, which strongly criticized war, society, religion etc.; on the other hand, there is the Nazi ideology about the invincible nation and the vision of the classical art. War horrors were used as a matter in the works of many artists, but the most brutal and the most realistic are the works of Otto Dix and George Grosz. Otto Dix became famous for his fanatical representation of suffering and war terror. Dix was a front machine-gunner and maybe because of that, devoted his...

Kordová, Magdalena ; Pešek, Jiří (advisor) ; Pelánová, Anita (referee)
Doctoral thesis "Escape of persecuted Jews from Vienna in 1942. Interpretative analysis of a diary" deals with an escape of a man and a woman across the Alps to Italy. The research aimed at studying two levels of the problém, the phenomenon of refuge as such, and a diary as an autobiographical resource, and provides its analysis. Considering the variety of the environments in which the escape happened, the authorhad to examine all possibilities to access the resources, and also the methods of verification. Thus archive documents were ušed along side with printed resources and artifacts. The diary is to be regarded as a resource, which first of all, records the event as such, and also as a document, which reflects the writeťs experience. The commentary through interpretation presents not only the so far unknown routě of an illegal passage of Austro-Italian border, but also discusses the relationship of the refugees, a man and a woman, in extreme conditions. Consequently it is shown that the term "emigration" is too complex and generál to be ušed precisely, especially in čase of an illegal escape. Powered by TCPDF (
