Gender Identity in the Work of Claude Cahun
Hapková, Tereza ; Magidová, Markéta (advisor) ; Kitzbergerová, Leonora (referee)
The bachelor thesis deals with the question of gender identity in the artistic production of French artist Claude Cahun. The theoretical part of the thesis focuses on the concept of sex, gender and identity in the context of Claude Cahun's life. Furthermore, her multiple selves, which she presents in her work through encrypted messages, is an important topic. She hides in her constructed world full of masks, masquerades, mirrors, doubles and stagings, behind the curtain of which she only let her partner, Suzanne Malherbe. The didactic part of the bachelor's thesis is focused on the proposal of the use of the photomontage technique in art education and its connection with other disciplines. The initial inspiration comes from the photomontages contained in the book Aveux non avenus, complementing the mostly autobiographical text by Claude Cahun. The main theme of the book is the search for oneself and one's own identity through text and illustrative images. In the book, Cahun has created her own world by rearranging her photographs and forming new wholes, which she has achieved through photomontage. The practical part of the bachelor thesis is focused on the photographic work of Claude Cahun. I first discuss the principles in her photographic work and their more general analysis. I then analyse three...

Surrealist "game" and its use in the work of Richard Weiner Hra doopravdy
Vitouš, Ladislav ; Heczková, Libuše (advisor) ; Málek, Petr (referee)
The presented thesis seeks to clarify Weiner's concept of the game as a specific experience of the world. The concept of the game is correlated to several related concepts, primarily to the artistic conception of the Le Grand Jeu and wider philosophical context, especially the Surrealist project. The aim of the work is not to assign Weiner's works to existing literary creations, orientations and tendencies (even its fragmented parts), but rather to define its uniqueness in contrast to them. It is not limited to one plane in the text, but takes into account all the poetic devices to reveal the author's concept of the game and the world in general. The subject of investigation is the author's last work Hra doopravdy. Keywords Richard Weiner Hra doopravdy Le Grand Jeu surrealism surrealist game
Parallelism in the Poetics of Juan Rulfo and María Luisa Bombal
Norocká, Monika ; Poláková, Dora (advisor) ; Housková, Anna (referee)
The aim of this Diploma Thesis is to bring attention to the resemblance between the work of one of the most important Hispanic American authors of 20th century, the Mexican Juan Rulfo, and his less well-known Chilean colleague, María Luisa Bombal. Even though the work of these writers has often been associated with the beginnings of the so-called Magical Realism, so far literary critics have not studied the parallelism in their poetics in detail. This work observes the deviation of these authors from the type of literature dominant in their time, and their effort to renovate it. Furthermore, it concerns the similarity in the approach to death in their work; it pays attention to the influence of the Nordic literature on their literary production. Another part of this work is dedicated to the parallels between the character of Susana San Juan from Rulfoˈs Pedro Páramo and Bombalˈs female characters. In addition to that, the work reflects the personal relationship between the authors in question.
Concept of woman in André Breton's works written between 1928 and 1937
Veverková, Martina ; Voldřichová - Beránková, Eva (advisor) ; Pohorský, Aleš (referee)
This paper explores the concept of women in prosaic writings of André Breton, a key figure of French surrealism. The writings included are Nadja (1928), The Communicating Vessels (1932), Mad Love (1937) and Arcane 17 (1944). To Breton women were those who enable a poet to reach freedom and surreal and he wanted to love and celebrate them. However, many critics see the notion of women in his (and surrealist in general) work as isolated from a real woman, expressing only desires and ideas of a man and giving women only a passive role. In the analytical part of this paper the specific women in Breton's work are examined to evaluate the above mentioned criticism. The aim is to assess how accurate this criticism is. Also, coherence of the Breton's actual portrayal of women and his theoretical concepts is reviewed. Keywords French literature, surrealism, André Breton, woman
The Employ of the Gothic Novel in Czech Prose of the First Half of the 20th Century: analogies and variations of the genre.
Petrová, Zuzana ; Činátlová, Blanka (advisor) ; Mravcová, Marie (referee)
The aim of this bachelor thesis is to define the genre of the English gothic novel, a historically-conditioned phenomenon, which is revived whenever a specific cultural and social situation occurs. The presence of the genre in the Czech prose of the first half of the twentieth century is traced and discovered in the works of Vítězslav Nezval and Jiří Karásek ze Lvovic. Along with the inspiration drawn from the gothic novel goes the literary background particular for each author - surrealism (Nezval) and decadence (Karásek). Despite the gothic novel balancing on the edge of the trivial, its position in the literary tradition has been stable for several hundreds of years. It has affected many other genres which have carried on its tradition until today.
Separeted librarries - Library of Karel Teige
Kulová, Sára ; Petruželková, Alena (advisor) ; Vorlíčková, Blanka (referee)
The main goal of this thesis titled Separated libraries - Library of Karel Teige is based on Teige's important life events to pursue his creative activity and to connect it with his personal library. This topic will form the first part of the thesis - split into period of Devetsil and Surrealist group. In the second part, I deal with the issue of Teige's separated library and its further destiny after 1951. I focus primarily on Teige's estate in the Museum of Czech Literature and on its composition. An important item of this second part are letters between the Ministry of National Security - Headquarters of State Security and the National Security Secretary, which describe an event between the intervention of the State Security into the apartment of Karel Teige and depositing Teige's estate to the National Museum Library. This thesis should help to clarify how Teige's library was separated and where it was deposited.
The Cobra Movement in the Context of Art of the 40s and early 50s.
Strasserová, Anna ; Klimešová, Marie (advisor) ; Rakušanová, Marie (referee)
This work deals with the experimental art group Cobra which united artists of three countries - Denmark, Belgium and the Netherlands, after the World War II. Although this movement was active only between the years 1948 and 1951, the beginning of this group can be traced in the pre-war period when the future members of the group were influenced by the mainstream art movements. Similarly, we cannot see the year 1951 as the end of the importance of this international art formation. Despite the short duration, the group united number of artists from different countries who then influenced many of future artists and art movements. This work therefore mentions the activity of Cobra members before the actual establishment of the group, attempts to describe in detail its work during its existence, and lastly, it indicates its further heading. A special chapter is dedicated to the connection of the group Cobra to the Czech art. The artists of Cobra drew their main inspiration from the work of arts of specific groups, such as that of children, mentally ill, so called primitive nations, or from the folk art. Alongside that, the artists created their own unique style based on collective and spontaneous work and liberal art expression. The plurality of their art expression and their relationship to other art...
