Murcia Cultural, cultural no profit association of the Autonomous Community of Murcia Region, presents, with the occasion of the 53rd International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, an international group show of artists who work or have worked on the theme of fear.

The world has changed in the last six months. Many of our convictions have collapsed, and we get hit by a new reality everyday. One thing can be sure: our society is governed by fear.
Fear is an emotional response to threats and danger. The capacity to fear is part of human nature but the experience of fear is affected by historical and cultural influences.
What do people fear most? Change, the other, financial chaos, spiders, death, terrorist attacks, unemployment, being a failure, immigration, being alone, the future…

The fundamental idea of this project is to show an art that could mirror the frightening times we are living in.

The Fear Society – Pabellón de la Urgencia is a project by the Region of Murcia, venue of the 8th edition of Manifesta – European Contemporary Art Biennial, scheduled for fall 2010.

Organization: Región Autonómica de Murcia, Consejería de Cultura y Turismo, Murcia Cultural
