The Female Secession
Millbrook
Saturday, Mar. 20, 2:00
Come join Millbrook-based art historian Dr. Megan Brandow-Faller this Women’s History Month for a talk on her recent book The Female Secession about women artist’s in the early 20th century defying the rigid strictures of the day to make innovative art.

About the Book: The artists of interwar Vienna’s ‘female Secession’ created craft-based artworks that rocked the established conventions surrounding ‘feminine’ handcraft, reclaiming women’s connections to devalued handcraft genres. Strongly represented in the well-known ‘Vienna Workshops’ (1903-1932), these ‘female Secessionists’ experimented with similar ideas and movements (expressionism, cubism, primitivism and abstraction) as male artists, overturning women’s unofficial exclusion from the ‘fine’ arts of painting and sculpture. The provocative work of artists like Vally Wieselthier, Emmy Zweybrück, or Fanny Harlfinger in ceramics, toymaking, textiles and interior design disrupted long-established boundaries by working to dislodge fixed oppositions between “art” and “craft,” “decorative” and “profound,” and “masculine” and “feminine” in art. In a very real way, their reclaiming of ‘feminine’ handcraft and matriarchal modes of transmission formed a woman-centered lineage anticipating those of the 1970s feminist art collectives and present-day craftivism. At a time when ‘DIY’ crafts are more popular than ever, The Female Secession could not be more relevant today.

Megan Brandow-Faller is Associate Professor of History at the City University of New York, Kingsborough. Her research focuses on art and design in Secessionist and interwar Vienna, including children’s art and artistic toys of the Vienna Secession; expressionist ceramics of the Wiener Werkstätte; folk art and modernism; and women’s art education. She is the editor of Childhood by Design: Toys and the Material Culture of Childhood, 1700-present (Bloomsbury 2018), the author of The Female Secession: Art and the Decorative at the Viennese Women’s Academy (Penn State University Press, 2020), the co-editor (with Laura Morowitz) of Erasures and Eradications in Viennese Modern Art Architecture and Design (Routledge, Forthcoming) as well as various peer-reviewed articles and book chapters.
