Course objectives
The lectures will focus on study of influential Czech social, cultural and artistic magazines from the period between 1880 and 1938.

The students will become acquainted not only with the main artistic currents but also with the changes of lifestyle and mentality in the Czech society of that period.
Learning outcomes
The student is able to explain the phenomenon of Czech artistic and social magazine, politics, culture and art in the 20th century.
