Štuksová, Natálie ; Zelená, Alena (advisor) ; Kunštát, Miroslav (referee)
Bakalářská práce Téma: Fenomén ilegálního stahování - porovnání českého a německého přístupu Anglicky: The phenomenon of illegal downloading - a comparison of Czech and German approaches Autor: Natálie Štuksová Studijní program: Česko-německá studia Vedoucí práce: PhDr. Alena Zelená, PhD. Abstract This bachelor thesis is dedicated to the topic of illegal downloading. It compares two different approaches to this issue, namely from the Czech Republic and Germany. In Germany, illegal downloading is punished much more severely than in the Czech Republic. Also, the legal framework that determines what is considered an illegal download is much stricter in Germany. The aim of this paper is to identify the reasons that cause the different approach to illegal downloading in these countries, which otherwise share a number of similarities. The thesis also seeks to provide a professional analysis of a phenomenon that almost every Internet user encounters in everyday life. The thesis concludes that the most fundamental cause is a different modern historical experience. Germany, unlike the Czech Republic, has a more than 70-year tradition with a democratic system, while the Czech Republic had a socialist unfree regime until 1989. Other reasons, such as society's attitude to the issue or the legal framework, stem...

The issue of gentrification in selected parts of Prague and Berlin
Moravová, Darja ; Kunštát, Miroslav (advisor) ; Zelená, Alena (referee)
This thesis, a comparative case study, deals with the issue of gentrification in selected parts of Prague and Berlin, the selected parts being Holešovice in Prague and Friedrichshain- Kreuzberg in Berlin. Gentrification is the process of replacing the original population with a more affluent population, and it involves things like physical transformation of a neighborhood, rent increases, or changes in the shops and services offered in a neighborhood. The aim of the thesis was to provide a comparison of the gentrification process in Holešovice and Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg based on three basic factors: the development and structure of the population, changes in shops and services in the district, and physical transformation. Furthermore, the reactions of residents and politicians to changes in neighborhoods were also investigated. From the comparison, it became clear that the gentrification process in Holešovice and Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg is carried out in a similar way, but that in Berlin residents and politicians are much more active in terms of interest in their neighborhood. Keywords Gentrification, urban transformation, redevelopment, housing crisis
Museums as Memory Places and "Ostalgy: Reflexions of Socialism in Czechoslovakia and in GDR
Dohnalová, Kristýna ; Zelená, Alena (advisor) ; Emler, David (referee)
The diploma thesis deals with the image of socialism and everyday life in the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic and the German Democratic Republic in museums thematically focused on the past regime. The aim of the research, which was based on the method of content analysis of two museum exhibitions (the Museum of Communism in Prague and the DDR Museum in Berlin were analysed), was to compare what image of socialism and everyday life under the socialist dictatorship museums create and what differences can be found. Attention was directed to exhibitions devoted to everyday life, which were examined, among other things, in terms of the reflection of ostalgie within the museum exhibition. The resulting comparison showed a different view of the era in the GDR and the Czechoslovakia within museum exhibitions, and confirmed the hypothesis that in the German case the ostalgie phenomenon would be manifested more prominently. While in the Berlin museum the focus is mainly on the everyday life of the citizens, which is portrayed here in a positive light and which in some thematic modules evokes almost ostalgic echoes, in the Prague museum the past regime is perceived more as a time of repression, as evidenced by the critical stand of the authors of the exhibition towards the omnipresent propaganda, which is...

Trojanová, Šárka ; Zelená, Alena (advisor) ; Emler, David (referee)
This bachelor's thesis deals with the topic of the termination of the Bauhaus school in Germany in connection with its political culture and the rise of right-wing forces in Germany during the 1920s and 1930s. The Bauhaus was a state school for most of its existence and as such had to correspond to the political culture of the time and place. The first two chapters deal with the circumstances that led to the establishment of the school, and with the very beginnings of Bauhaus in Weimar. The next chapters deal with Dessau and Berlin, where the school gradually moved, which are set in the context of the post-war political situation in Germany. The personalities of all three principals who worked at the school, as well as other pedagogues and the students themselves, played a significant role in the development of the school's situation. Two separate chapters are devoted to the emergence of Nazism, Nazi art and the Nazis' view of the avant-garde as a depraved art. The conclusion of the thesis deals with the end of the school in Berlin and the reflection of the Bauhaus after the Second World War in both parts of divided Germany.

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...

Furthermore, there are different campaigns and initiatives that should make the gaining of German language knowledge among pupils more popular. In conclusion the thesis compares the state of the support of German language in Poland and the Czech Republic.
