  Lecture: The Violent Potency of the Small: Romantic "Scherenschnitte"  
(Academic)

Catriona MacLeod, Frank Curtis Springer and Gertrude Melcher Springer Professor in the Departments of Art History and Germanic Studies at the University of Chicago, will present "The Violent Potency of the Small: Romantic 'Scherenschnitte.'" The association of paper cuts (Scherenschnitte) with mid-19th century Biedermeier domesticity and feminine craft, the art of the small, has contributed to an apolitical reading of their meaning. Are paper cuts around 1800 always reassuring mechanisms of containment, safe from contagion of any kind, including historical time? Do they always teach their creators to create and think small? This talk will seek to re-engage such works with history and monumentality from a feminist perspective.
