Master's State Examination seminar 2

FaVU-CPZZ-IIAcad. year: 2020/2021

The second of three seminars serving as a support for students in preparation for the theoretical part of the master's state final exam. The basis for work in this semester is the canon of 100 selected works of art and exhibitions related to the themes of the state exam. During the semester, students will choose which work of art (or exhibition) they want to focus on. The output is a seminar paper, in which at least one of the recommended texts for state exam circles must be used for a closer presentation and interpretation of the selected art work (exhibition). After the introductory joint lessons, the work in the semester is individual and is based on consultations with teachers.
