The End of Fear
The End of Fear is a film by Barbara Visser about the waning influence of modern art. Based on a controversial painting from the 1960s, the documentary examines how art is affected by society and whether or not it still inspires awe and visceral protest. It’s a compelling exploration of the role of art in our lives. While there are many aspects of the film that might seem cliche, the movie will leave you feeling inspired by the film’s powerful themes.
The End of Fear was once a permanent exhibition in the Hall of Honors at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but is now only on loan and is not permitted to travel abroad. The film explores the relationship between art and contemporary culture, tackling the questions of what makes art “authentic” and what we attribute value to art in both artistic and economic terms. For those prone to fear, the book can help you break the bonds of fear and achieve your dreams.
The End of Fear explores the questions that were raised during the painting’s lifetime, as well as the relationship of people to art today. It asks what makes art authentic and what is the role of artists in a society. It asks whether art is worth anything, both artistically and economically. In the process, you will realize that fear can prevent you from living the life that you want to live. The movie is highly recommended.
