Anxious Places: Angst, environments and affective contamination
Commentators claim that contemporary culture is dominated by anxiety. From individual uncertainties to global economic, social and political insecurities, anxiety pervades our lives and affects our interactions with people and places. Anxious Places examines the ways in which anxiety ‘contaminates’ urban, social, and natural environments and asks how histories are implicated in making it a cultural script. Artists and scholars
discuss contemporary angst from a range of cross-disciplinary perspectives and artistic mediums.
