Course detail

Studio Follow-up I - Video - summer

FaVU-M1VI-LAcad. year: 2019/2020

Students work independently (selection and structure of the team is in their hands) in both semesters of the 1st year of master's degree. Research results in their own work is an alternative to studio program. Art currently is largely built on a theoretical (semantic) background (the process of) creation and therefore Master years atelier ensure - within individual programs - theoretical (parallel) talks, "courses", consultations and workshops - Conceptual (verbal) theoretical - procedures can be an integral part of the practical work. Interesting may be the benefits of scientific disciplines, such as psychology, philosophy, ecology, sociology, etc.

Course curriculum

Artistic communication - creative process in media environment. Students creativly respond to the relevant offer of the studio - on the grounds of already elaborated projects for their master studies. Complex structure of creative process, as well as wider (philosophical, moral, sociological etc.) contexts with the reference of the created "work" modify the teaching process. During master studies students work independently (the choice and structure of the team is in their hands). Results of examination of their creation are alternatives of the studio programme.
So called "modern" - at present "post-modern" - art is mainly built on the theoretic background of creation and therefore the studio provides MA students - within their individual programmes - with theoretic lectures, courses, consultations and workshops. Conceptual and theoretic procedures can be an inseparable part of practical work (post-modern Gesamtkunstwerk). Presence of (quasi) "non-related" scientific disciplines like psychology, philosophy, ecology, sociology etc., which is an interesting phenomenon.


Independent realisation of the tasks coming out of the students´creative nature.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences
