The History of Scissors
Scissors cut hair or leather, fine silk fabrics or metal sheets, paper or branches. They are simple, everyday cutting tools, specialised handicraft tools, artfully created design objects or even cherished utensils that accompany people throughout their lives. The exhibition shows the diverse contexts of use, the manifold shapes and sizes and does not ignore the cultural and historical aspects. A series of interactive hands-on stations invite visitors to playfully engage with the everyday object of use, scissors.
