Course detail

Studio IV - Video - winter

FaVU-B4VI-ZAcad. year: 2020/2021

Students will learn how to use own artistic potential. Students focus on preparation for the practical part of the bachelor exam search for the most suitable topics and for the shape of its future presentation. They create projects and focus on their practical realization within the context of new media: Unlike previous "horizontal" orientation - where students are mainly looking for their "own" the way, their position – now there is time to try to gain certain "verticality": Dive into the individual authors’ projects. Teachers from the studio will consult with them with special focus on the chosen topic – they will recommend suitable literature or mediate contacts with experts from another studio / school. This model situation serves as a conceptual preparation for bachelor work (in the summer semester of the fourth year).

Course curriculum

Author´s projects and their practical realization within the area of new media. "Vertical" deepining of already found creative issues. Immersion to one´s own single projects. Studio teachers specially focus on the issues chosen by students and deal with them during consultations. They recommend special literature or mediate contacts with other teachers and experts (from another studio or college). This results in team work, where the teacher becomes a kind of co-author, due to his participation in the creative process... This process serves as a condeptual preparation for bachelor work (in the summer semester of the fourth year).


Students focus on the realization part of their BA exam. They search for the most suitable topics and for the way of its creation with respect to its future presentation. At the same time, they submit the project of their MA studies for approval.
