The course is based on introspection of one's own creative process, finding sources of inspiration, their analysis, the creation of a conceptual framework for the approach to the topic being portrayed, analysis of the issues and context in which the project is created, research of the historical and contemporary context, awareness of the connection or negation of important works related to the topic, the choice of media and the scope of the project, the idea of the necessary collaboration or the acquisition of new skills, especially in the field of technical support for the presentation and the actual implementation of the project in the exhibition space. Throughout the creative process, the listener works with the accompanying text

Assessment methods and criteria

Evaluation - examination before the committee. The student defends the result of his/her own semester work, which has a coherent form and meets the requirements for public presentation in the exhibition space. In specific cases, it may be a work in a public space. An essential part of the exhibition project is an explication of two to three standard pages, which includes the author's intention, conveyance of the creative process, justification of the means used, sources of inspiration, inclusion in the context of contemporary art and critical reflection.
