Catriona MacLeod lecture--What’s the matter with Romantic Sculpture?

In her recent research, Catriona MacLeod (University of Pennsylvania) examines the question of why sculpture is both intensively discussed and yet rendered immaterial in German literature. She focuses on three forms of disappearance: sculpture’s vanishing as a legitimate art form at the beginning of the nineteenth century in German aesthetics, statues’ migration from the domain of high art into mass reproduction and popular culture, and sculpture’s dislodging and relocation into literary discourse.
