Kopčil, Tomáš ; Palla, Marian (referee) ; Ruller, Tomáš (advisor)
For the deed I consider an event in the outside world which will depend on human behavior, which may have one or more signs of artistic acts or does not show signs of any artistic act. This event is then act as defined in the relevant Act. Artistic achievement in relation to the act represents a certain structure. The nature of the offense and an act of the artist and the result of this conduct caused, which is relevant to the history of visual culture. Negotiation is a manifestation of the will of the artist in the outside world, consisting of an act or omission, failure to act.
Cluster World
Delong, Marek ; Artamonov, Vasil (referee) ; Šrámek, Jan (advisor)
In my thesis I focus mainly on omnipresence of the internet and technology. Additionally on colapse of physical environment in online culture and infinite reproduction ability and transformability of digital matter. However, I’m also concerned about their feedback application into exhibition areas. The thesis deals with change of authorship – after an art piece gets documented, it becomes a circulating material. Authorship of an artwork is almost impossible to track down, same as the initial context. Artistic outcome switches from auratic object into a file which is a subject to the network architecture. In the last two decades the relationship between image, text, language, meaning, body, space, subject and object changed radically. The task is no longer to create unique and original art but to observe existing supplies of images and spaces as de-subjectivized.

Bílek, Ondřej ; Sobotka, Jiří (referee) ; Gabriel, Michal (advisor)
Realistic modeled sculpture of death animal body free from its fur and accepting color of human body. The issue of moral access to the human superiority over all other kinds.
Mundanity at the End of the City
Dvořák, Jakub ; Nikitinová, Alice (referee) ; Artamonov, Vasil (advisor)
The bachelor's thesis is part of a long-term built and developed cycle of paintings, in which I deal with the environment of the small-town periphery, or the small-town landscape in general. In the paintings I try to create an atmosphere on the aspects of mundaneness, everyday life and civility. I do not avoid a certain descriptiveness to express my message to the audience. In painting, I looked mainly at composition and color. My main goal is show to the viewers the image of a contemporary Czech small town.
Structures and themes of Yusuf Idris' short stories
Provazníková, Adéla ; Ondráš, František (advisor) ; Oliverius, Jaroslav (referee)
This bachelor's thesis deals with the artistic development of the Egyptian writer Yusuf Idris (1927-1991). Based on the study of two short stories collections it describes the changes in his writing from the 1960s to the 1980s. To achieve this goal, the thesis uses the terminology of the theory of fictional worlds developed by Lubomír Doležel, which provides a suitable tool for the characterisation of themes and techniques in Idris' works. Starting from Idris' realistic worlds of the 1950s, the thesis tracks and explains the fundamental change that his writing later underwent. The essential socio-political context is also given. Through detailed textual analysis of selected short stories, the thesis concludes that author's fictional worlds from the 1980s are darker, more self-contained and complicated, despite of some continuity of themes and structural techniques used throughout Idris' work.
Democratic Peace in Theory and Practice
Olejníková, Lenka Barbora ; Karlas, Jan (advisor) ; Rychnovská, Dagmar (referee)
The thesis "Democratic Peace in Theory and Practice" aims to present the Democratic Peace Theory as an international relations theory with a practical significance for the political practice. The Democratic Peace Theory will be first analysed as a part of a broad liberal tradition of International Relations Theory, and then particular ways of how the theory is empirically related to the practices of international politics will be examined. The main objective of the thesis is the analysis of the complex nature of the Democratic Peace Theory with the emphasis on the potentiality of the theory to have larger political impact.
The instrumentalisation and weaponisation of migrants, its impacts, and how the EU responds: the case of Belarus
Škopková, Lucie ; Parízek, Michal (advisor) ; Kazharski, Aliaksei (referee)
This diploma thesis will focus on the weaponisation of migration as a hybrid threat posed to states in an attempt to destabilise their internal systems. The case study of the Poland-Belarus border crisis will be used to examine and illustrate how the European Union can address such hybrid attacks and how this reflects on the notion of the European Union as a 'normative power'. This will be done by conducting a content analysis of relevant news articles from EURACTIV, EUobserver, and POLITICO on the case study and by holding interviews with experts and academics. The notion of the European Union as a normative power will be explored through the lens of realism and neo-realism, focusing on the role of human rights and the European Union's reliance on sanctions. This will help to explore the conclusion that the conceptualisation of the European Union should be more nuanced, making it appear as a civilian power with strong normative foundations in practice rather than a solely normative power.
Selected Art Techniques in Figural Painting
Škábová, Sandra ; Gajdošíková, Pavla (advisor) ; Daniel, Ladislav (referee)
The bachelor thesis deals with selected painting approaches in figurative art. The theoretical part describes the basic principles of traditional and digital painting techniques by placing them in a historical context. It compares key craft qualities while highlighting common difficulties in painting. It showcases contemporary painters working within the selected techniques and the figurative subject matter. It analyzes individual approaches to the human figure, ranging from realist painting to distinctive versions of stylization in modern and contemporary art. The subsequent artistic part presents the author's own figurative work in the form of the painting series Siblings, to which she applies the same framework as the theoretical part of the thesis. The attached reflection of the author is interpreted and visualized using the characteristic features of selected artists' works, which exhibit the same aspects of creation as the Siblings. The narrative component of the author's work already resides in the private world of the artist and explores its imprint in the subjects depicted. The results obtained further inspire the didactic part and build the design of the lesson on the foundations stemming from the experiences gained through the painting series. Through the insights gained from the careful...
