Teacher: Mgr. Zuzana Štefková, Ph.D.
Class Time: Tuesday 12:30 – 14:00

The course seeks to introduce students to the richness and diversity of feminist and queer theory in relation to a vast array of examples of contemporary art produced in Central and Eastern Europe. The course will combine lecture format with reading and interpretation of selected texts dealing with a broad variety of topics ranging from identity, embodiment, race, sexuality, authorship, institutional critique, to spectacle and gaze, among others. Students will be encouraged to analyse ideological inscriptions and the effects of the sex/gender system and heteronormativity and invited to challenge the related overlapping, and contradictory systems of power that shape our lives and actions.
