FK 15 Umění autorské knihy a výtvarná výchova
Title in English: FK 15. Art of author’s book and visual art education
FK 15 is the abbreviation for the 15 volumes of Phenomenon: The Book, the international student competition organised by the Department of Art Education of the Faculty of Education at Masaryk University, Brno and memorialized in this publication. Apart from reflecting on the student competition, the book also deals with the art of author’s book represented in the collections of the Moravian Gallery in Brno and in the art works produced by students and teachers in Ústí nad Labem and Prague. The case study on author’s books created by children, which explores literary and creative expressions of children of the early school age, significantly transcends the topic of author’s books. The study documents the common roots of drawing and writing in children’s spontaneous creative expressions. By analysing particular works, it defines common characteristics of this children’s specific creative output. The part dealing with the relationship between the new media and the book also corresponds with the broader approach to the book.
