The fear of place and the manifestation of this in contemporary art is the territory for TOPOPHOBIA. Following an introduction by curators Eggebert-and-Gould, Dr Caterina Albano will opened the afternoon with a discussion on the history and development of this anxiety disorder and its relationship to the modern urban context. Artists Matthias Einhoff, David Ferrando Giraut, Polly Gould, Uta Kogelsberger, Emily Speed and Louise K Wilson, and writer Leslie Forbes, each gave a talk and came together to discuss their work in relation to and in extension of the themes of TOPOPHOBIA. This symposium contributed to current debates on freedom and the culture of fear, and connects us to the existential human question of how each of us finds our place in the world.
The TOPOPHOBIA Symposium was an Art: Public Realm research group event.
