Angst is a specifically German term for which there is no direct equivalent in other languages able to express the diverse meanings that come together in this word. Together with fear, anxiety and disquiet, it is an existential and thoroughly human feeling. Everyone knows what it is but finds it difficult to put into words. The exhibition Salon der Angst engages with those diffuse feelings of insecurity and threat, but also shows that the individual and collective angst-inducing experiences and events are culturally determined.
