Tělo v pohybu
Title in English: The Moving Body. Performativity within the Sokol Movement in the Period of the Formation of the Modern Czech Nation
This monograph deals with the cultural performances of the Sokol movement, which directly influenced the construction of the Czech national identity in the second half of the 19th century. Cultural performances helped to create a shared subjective reality of both actors and audiences and the aesthetic value of the cultural performances contributed to the succesful interpretation of performances by the audiences. National identity was created essentially by the moving bodies of the Sokol trainees. This monograph devotes particular attention to the phenomenal and semiotic aspects of the Sokol bodies and their preparations and performances in the process of national identity construction.
