61 – Fear

Fall 2007

As a psychological phenomenon linked to a perceived threat, be it real or imaginary, fear is a part of our daily lives. Writers and film makers have, for some time now, amused themselves by generating the conditions necessary to the staging of fear in an effort to entertain the public or to find in its production either a form of emotional stimulation or an outlet. Fear of death, dread of the day to day, the difficulty of living in society, the fear of difference or of being rejected for one’s singularity are some of the affects artists explore in this issue.
