    • Synopsis
    • "The End of Fear" is a cinematographic essay on a crucial and controversial work of art from the 1960’s, the painting Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue III by Barnett Newman.
      "The End of Fear" takes multiple perspectives on important and fascinating questions that were raised during the painting’s lifetime and raises the question of whether they are still present in our current relationship to contemporary art.
      What is the possible value of art: what makes something a work of art; who decides this; what does it mean; what is the value of art in economic, artistic, and social terms?
