Course objectives
The seminar focuses on the theoretical and practical acquaintance with the medium of the art event and its position in the context of history and art theory. The seminar provides students with a place for practical verification of the possibilities of art action as a means of artistic expression and indicates the potential of using this medium in future pedagogical practice. Students realize an art project both in the classroom and individually in lessons. Both of these forms include an initial idea, a tutorial with the teacher, the realization of an art event and its documentation and presentation. Learning outcomes of the course unit The aim of the course is to acquire basic theoretical knowledge about the art of the event and to acquire elementary experience with the realization of group and individual art events, including its documentation and presentation.
