It's a boy! (Not only) the gender issue of the ways childbirth is shown in film
Černá, Natálie ; Svatoňová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Přádná, Stanislava (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with the depiction of birthing woman in film through the perspective of gender and feminist theories. The first part makes the reader familiar with the history of obstetrics in relation to the issues of gender. It sketches a parallel between the social roots of obstetrics and impulses for the first feminist movement. In the second part the thesis looks closer into the constructive and performative nature of gender and gender roles and most importantly it deals with benefits and pitfalls of motherhood according to feminist theoreticians. For this purpose, it introduces selected concepts of Shulamith Firestone, Adrienne Rich and Julia Kristeva. The third part analyses potential reasons, why the portrayal of childbirth has been historically pushed aside and why, as a consequence, there is no female childbirth narrative, which would equip women with means to express their experience. The fourth part seeks this missing narrative in particular examples among nonfiction as well as fiction works from contemporary cinema as well as from from its history.

Future families in the past tense: strategies of using home movies in documentary films
Rezková, Hana ; Hanáková, Petra (advisor) ; Svatoňová, Kateřina (referee)
Synopsis This thesis aims to define the basic strategies used to tackle and process home movie footage in compilation documentary films by Péter Forgács, Jan Šikl and Marek Šulík. It also aims to outline how these strategies influence and regulate the ways the historical period in question is communicated in these films. The source material of the home movie will first be discussed in its original family context as the product of a specific media memory practice that at the same time determines the rhetoric and aesthetics of this material. In the second part, the thesis will focus on two basic strategies for the use of home movie footage in these films. While the first strategy uses home movies to thematize and problematize the possibilities of historical representation, the second one exploits the mode of authenticity and strong affective potential of the home movie to block out active viewer engagement.
Outwit, Outplay, Outlast: The Cultural Study of the Reality TV Phenomenon Survivor
Součková, Štěpánka ; Hanáková, Petra (advisor) ; Svatoňová, Kateřina (referee)
This bachelor thesis is occupied with the phenomenon of the reality TV show Survivor (CBS, 2000). This cultural essay examines the historical development of the reality TV genre. Further, it studies cultural meanings of the reality TV show Survivor, such as a social darwinism, rituals, a life in a community or a voting drama. The main part deals with possibilities of the representation of masculinity in television. Multiple masculinities are analyzed by using the methodology of men's studies, especially through the perspective of the hierarchy of masculinities and the hegemonic masculinities by Raewyn Connell, and through the concept of the mutilated man by Elisabeth Badinter. The final case study is focused on the representation of nonhegemonic masculinities in reality TV show Survivor.
The Phenomenon of Zombies in Films by George A. Romero
Čada Wernischová, Nelly ; Čeněk, David (advisor) ; Svatoňová, Kateřina (referee)
(in English) This work deals with the phenomenon of zombie in films by George A. Romero. Its objective is to prove that, although the characteristics of the phenomenon underwent significant change within individual films by this director, it still preserved the basic metaphoric function it had already at the time of its origination in Haiti in the 17th century. . The analytical part, in which three selected zombie horrors by George A. Romero (Dawn of the Dead, Land of the Dead and Diary of the Dead) are discussed, is based on the methods of neoformalist analysis. Based on the analysis of individual films, I have proved that the zombie phenomenon in Romero's films works, the same as it does in Haiti, as a metaphor of slavery with this metaphor being varied depending on the issues that become the current topic of each of the films whose actual aim is to criticise the contemporary society.

Chytilová, Kučera, Krumbachová: Daisies and Fruit of Paradise as an experiment of three authors
Křížkovská, Terezie ; Svatoňová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Klimeš, Ivan (referee)
(in English): The following bachelors thesis deals with the creative cooperation of the Czech film director Věra Chytilová with the director of photography Jaroslav Kučera and art director Ester Krumbachová on the films Daisies (1966) and Fruit of Paradise (1969). Its aim is to answer the question if it is possible to distinguish between the contributions of each of the filmmakers or if rather their artwork is a product of three equivalent authors. Both of the films are characteristic for their extreme artistic stylization thanks to the experimental work with plot and film form, and therefore the thesis focuses on this tendency for experimentation as a specific Czechoslovak cultural phenomenon in the sixties and observes it among different art fields at the time. Subsequently it describes the transformation in different artistic approaches and shows their impact on filmmaking. It unravels not only the social and cultural transformations of the time, but also the institutional changes in film production that represent essential conditions for the genesis of the New Wave in Czech cinema and along with it experimental filmmaking. Thereafter it defines the characteristic themes and style of previous works of Věra Chytilová, Jaroslav Kučera and Ester Krumbachová. In the last part it uses these...
Material Fictions: Moving (Between) Images of Contemporary Art
Purkrábková, Noemi ; Svatoňová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Petříček, Miroslav (referee)
7 Abstract This master's thesis engages moving images of contemporary art in order to sketch out certain ontological qualities of the digital image and imaginary, as they increasingly spill out of all fixed frames and fill the spaces between screens, contexts, and human and non-human agents. Following Steven Shaviro's observation that digital media brought about a completely "new regime" of mutable technical imaging often independent of any preceding "real" space, but instead able to produce its own space-time, this text treats moving images as performative world-shaping fictions with tangible traction on reality. Instead of understanding their growing proliferation in terms of the often-mourned disappeared correspondence to some previous reality, depth or truth, it suggests taking their fluidity as an opportunity to rethink the very divide placed between reality and fiction, as it continues to blur throughout our interactions with digital media, and to treat images not as mere representations but as material forces intensively active in the physical matter of the world, as well as in our own cognition. To articulate this irreducible materiality of digital image-fictions, the thesis weaves together on one hand respective philosophical concepts of François Laruelle and Gillese Deleuze and Félix Guattari -...
Posthuman Art Praxis: Restless Boundaries of Planetary Subjects
Sirůček, Jiří ; Svatoňová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Likavčan, Lukáš (referee)
Our impact on the planet's functioning has allegedly become so profound that during the last years the scientific community has been considering assuming a shift from the Holocene - our current geological epoch - to the Anthropocene, the Age of Man. According to philosopher Bernard Stiegler, this "era of Humans" is not only visible in the devastation of natural ecosystems, but also through the destruction of human skills and methods of transmitting knowledge. The Anthropocene, which was initiated by the industrial revolution, thus passed through the industrialization of culture, and has disrupted our understanding of the world. Philosopher Rosi Braidotti proposes that with the advent of this new era, we ought to be aware of not only the ever-present environmental catastrophes, but that we also ought to use it as a tool for reappraising what it means to be Human. According to her, the Western subject was created as a product of the Humanist cultural hegemony which defined it within a logic of binary opposition. In light of these ideas, this Master's thesis attempts to show that art can provide us methods for redefining our relationship to each other, as well as to the wider world, and help us navigate the contours of the ongoing crisis. The work uses Posthumanist thought and its affiliated...
