Statement

The uncanny is something fearful and frightening, and as such it has been neglected in art history . But Modernism marks a turn in a general toward a fascination with the ugly, the grotesque: a kind of “negative” aesthetics. Freud’s essay The Uncanny makes a contribution to this, by examining what we might call the aesthetics of the “fearful,” the aesthetics of anxiety.
