The Quiet Omnipresence
Bodlák, Ondřej ; Dvořák, Vojtěch (referee) ; Mikyta, Svätopluk (advisor)
The work, entitled The Quiet Omnipresence, themes the metaphor of grid and line as representing the source elements necessary for the growth of whole forms. It relies on a study of landscape and urban scenery, its quiet ubiquitous mechanisms and processes. The jumble of lines creates a sensorially elusive monochromatic surface that the observer can encounter when looking at organic structures for longer periods, as well as industrially tuned urban compositions. It explores the relationship of order and chaos in its opposite but paradoxically mutually inexorable connotations. The work mostly relies on a specific and not uncommon type of space often right in the middle of cities – vague terrains, places forgotten and deliberately overlooked, in which banal biological processes slowly take the helm determining the direction of a seemingly random development.

Gorbušinová, Anna ; Gajdošíková, Pavla (advisor) ; Tsikoliya, Lenka (referee)

Fragments of Landscape
Nováková, Kateřina ; Gajdošíková, Pavla (advisor) ; Sedlák, Michal (referee)
The master thesis Fragments of Landscape explores the meaning of landscape in contemporary Czech art, using an a/r/tographic approach focused on exploring artistic and pedagogical practice through artistic production. Emphasis is placed on the importance of connecting the roles of artist, researcher and teacher. The first part of the thesis introduces the method of a/r/tography, explores the definition of landscape and the characteristics associated with its value, and the contemporary artistic view of landscape within the contemporary Czech art scene. It analyses artistic approaches to landscape and classifies them into nine categories, reflecting the diverse artistic approaches, the author's view of landscape and their influence on the creation and understanding of landscape. The author's own artistic work focuses on the authorial process of landscape transformation and interpretation, based on art field research of the Jizera Mountains and the resulting creation of a network of landscape fragments. The categorization of artistic approaches is the key to understanding the complexity of the creative process. The categorisation implies that the landscape cannot be clearly framed and categorised. The thesis concludes by evaluating the importance of didactic tasks in the process of art education,...
Analysis of land use development in selected localities of the former Austro-Hungarian monarchy
The aim of this thesis was to analyse the development of land use in two selected cadastral areas: the cadastral area of Holubov and Nová Ves u Brloha. The analysis was defined by three historical milestones. The monitored period started in 1827, followed by 1947 and ended in 2023. The underlying data were stable cadastre maps available as a full-area map layer from the Geoportal of the South Bohemian Region, a historical orthophoto map from the 1950s from the National Geoportal INSPIRE and then an orthophoto map from 2023 available as a WMS viewer service from the Czech Office of Surveying and Cadastre. The map output and vectorisation was created in ArcGIS Pro. The processing of data on the area of each type of land use and the creation of tables and graphs was carried out in Microsoft Excel. The basic types of land use were defined and described in detail in the practical part. Subsequently, the development in both areas was compared with each other. It was found that, with the exception of arable land, the trend in the development of the individual land use types in both areas was almost identical (with the exception of minor deviations). Thus, in both areas, forest is currently the most represented area, followed by permanent grassland and arable land.

Black.(Selected cases of phenomena in visual arts, culture and their possibilities in education)
Pfeiffer, Jan ; Fulková, Marie (advisor) ; Havlík, Vladimír (referee) ; Vartecká, Anna (referee)
Univerzita Karlova Pedagogická fakulta DISERTAČNÍ PRÁCE Černá. (Vybrané případy fenoménu ve výtvarném umění, kultuře a jejich možnosti v edukaci) MgA. Jan Pfeiffer 2023 Charles University, Faculty of Education DISSERTATION Black. (Selected cases of phenomena in visual arts, culture and their possibilities in education) MgA. Jan Pfeiffer 2023 Abstract The subject of this work is black, or the designation for color. But it is also an artistic concept and means of expression. The subject of my interest are selected cases of the black phenomenon in visual arts, culture, and their possibilities in education. I understand black as a phenomenon that I explore through my own creative work. In the course of it, I ask myself questions, such as: what stimuli, for example, black gives us and how it is connected with our socio-cultural background and its perception. I also ask contemporary artists working consciously or unconsciously with black, what black enables them in their work, and how it supports them, whether it is crucial for them. My intention is to open new perspectives on the subject of black and its connection with daily life, the ability to treat this phenomenon as a conscious gesture, an opinion - distinguishing different uses of black context. I also examine the possibilities of reasoning verified in...
Zoos as socially constructed institutions in changing social and territorial contexts
Nekolný, Lukáš ; Fialová, Dana (advisor) ; Šantrůčková, Markéta (referee) ; Boltižiar, Martin (referee)
This dissertation deals with research of the zoo as a social construct, which in its history and form represents the development of the relationship between society and nature, or man and animals. At the same time, it is a specific cultural landscape reflecting other changes in paradigms and needs in society. The current form of zoos has always reflected various economic, political, environmental and cultural aspects, or opinion and spatial changes of society. This work is a contribution to the discussion of the application of thematization typical of contemporary experience-oriented society. The aim of the thesis is to characterize the development of zoos and their current form in Europe, where this concept originated at the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries, and to discuss regional differences regarding the different geographical context of the post-socialist space. From the geographical point of view, this is a topic rarely addressed so far, both from a theoretical (the zoo as an example of the specific landscape) as well as a regional approach. The first part provides a theoretical framework by means of a discussion of scientific literature and formulating the starting points of the research based on selected concepts and paradigms (social constructivism, the relationship between man and...
