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