In different locations throughout Sachsen-Anhalt and on the border to the Czech Republic.

Public space plays a special role in people’s fears. Here they are unprotected and vulnerable. Under the heading Angst in Form (Fear in Form), the subject of fear and its impact is directly broached, activated and orchestrated in order to deconstruct the mechanisms used to generate it. In addition, the symptom of “fear” is explored in order to discover what triggers it and to develop an understanding of its interaction in public space.

Nine projects reflect on and give form to different concepts of fear in site-specific and process-oriented works. 

Angst in Form is curated by the Berlin Artists Collective KUNSTrePUBLIK
