Climate catastrophe, information overload, piling debts, screen time sleeplessness, and all the loneliness in between. Welcome to the age of anxiety.
BA (Hons) exhibition "S(he) had to wait in the waiting room for 15 minutes" is a one-to-one guided experience through five interpretations of anxiety. Five artists will present their works grappling with the problem of anxiety in the modern age. With artworks ranging from sculpture, performance, to installations, Prague College’s Fine Art Experimental Media students aim to create an open space to creatively approach and rethink anxiety.
The last hours of the exhibition on Jan, 30th are dedicated to a performative curator’s walk led by curator Sasha and the launch of the publication "Word Therapy".
The publication consists of a mix of creative and academic writings on the topic of anxiety, such as its relation to climate breakdown or the link between digital communication and anxiety disorders.
The contributors are as following: Andrea Průchová Hrůzová, Karel Veselý, Theo Carnegy-Tan, Ian Morell, and Sasha. The publication is a supplement to the exhibition.
WAITING TIME: MAX. 15 MINUTES
