Julius von Bismarck
ANGST – Krisenindikator oder Überlebenstrieb?
Künstlerverein Walkmühle
Mar 31 – Jun 25, 2023
Opening: Mar 31, 6pm

Climate, epidemics, war and catastrophes: The mood of the end times is rampant. Fear is the sometimes subliminal, sometimes dominant feeling of the present. Fear of the future, fear of loss of control, fear of the disintegration of our society. Fear of dictators and dictatorship. Fear of populists and hatred. Fear of war and violence, fear of climate change and the loss of our habitats. Fear is the subject of psychological research and part of all religious revelations.

Fear is a complex phenomenon. It is an emotion and a basic human instinct. But how do we ourselves and our society deal with the phenomenon of fear? Are fears currently on the rise? Do they drive us to act, or do they paralyze us?
