What are you afraid of? Fear in our everyday life
Fear is a basic human emotion. The mind and body, reason and thought, spirit and heart connect. Love, happiness, sadness, hatred, envy, desire… generate energy and influence various mechanisms in our social lives. The nature of emotions is biological, psycho-physiological, cultural-social and environmental: emotions emerge from the relationships of living beings and the environment, the world that surrounds us.
To speak about fear means to speak about our culture of living, about society and community, about tradition, about the relationship of the local and global, about the past, the present and about the view to the future. Fear alerts us to the relationship with the other, about the interpretation and understanding of ourselves in the context of the wider community. To confront the subject of fear from a museological and ethnographical perspective means primarily to explore the cultural and social specificities of the community in which we live through one separate system. It is primarily driven by emotions, psychological and physical conditions conditioned by the most varied life circumstances.
