Opening: 1 PM, Sunday, December 4, 201

Angst Hat Grosse Augen : May - October 2011 May - October 2010
Werkleitz Festival 2010 in cooperation with KUNSTrePUBLIK
Halle, Germany

Seven site-specific projects at various locations in and around Halle, in Saxony, neighboring federal states and the Czech Republic.

Public space plays a particular role in people's fears. They are unprotected and vulnerable, to road accidents, criminality, political demonstrations, terrorism, and state violence and surveillance. Under the subcategory, Fear in Form, the impact of fear is to be addressed, mobilized and staged as a means to deconstruct mechanisms for generating fear. Secondly, fear as a sympton is to be investigated vis-à-vis its causes in order to develop an understanding of its correlations in public space.

Artists include:
Critical Art Ensemble, Stephan Apicella-Hitchcock, Leopold Kessler, Folke Köbberling & Martin Kaltwasser, Steve Rowell, Henrik Schrat, Antje Schiffers & Thomas Sprenger and KUNSTrePUBLIK (Matthias Einhoff, Philip Horst, Markus Lohmann, Harry Sachs, Daniel Seiple)

Angst in Form (Fear as Form)
is curated by Joseph Del Pesco, Sophie Hope, Frank Motz, Edit Molnar and Annette Maechtel with KUNSTrePUBLIK/Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum.
