Migrations Of Fear is a multidisciplinary project, cooperation between artists and art institutions in Leipzig (Germany) – Future of Europe Society for Contemporary Art/Kunstverein Leipzig, Graz (Austria) – Forum Stadtpark, Plovdiv (Bulgaria) – Art Today Association for Contemporary Art, and Slovenj Gradec (Slovenia) – Koroška galerija likovnih umetnosti (KGLU).
The project is a reaction to the actual political and social reality in Europe. It evolves around the real, phantom, individual or common fears in general, which have recently surfaced especially in relation to the refugee wave of the last two years. Those fears, and above all the ways the contemporary society could find in order to defeat them, are the spheres, which the exhibitions' series in the four cooperating countries intends to explore.
