Anxiety is the disease of the 21st Century – if you haven’t got any there’s probably something wrong with you.

Have you observed any of these symptoms in yourself or others whilst visiting a gallery, museum, or theatre recently?

  • Increased speed of movement combined with an inability to concentrate
  • Outbursts of quasi-meaningful commentary followed by lingering feelings of inadequacy
  • Floppy limbs
  • Greater than usual interest in fellow patrons
  • Slightly misplaced assumptions about yours and others manual and cognitive capacity
  • Gross overcompensation
  • Aimless gift shop meandering combined with uncharacteristic purchases.

You may be suffering from Art Anxiety otherwise known as

kunst angst

Kunst Angst is indicated by a range of signs. These signs (or symptoms) are typically divided into two basic categories: somatic (body related) and psychological (mentally related). Mild bodily symptoms include lethargy, general irritation and repeated sighing. More serious cases present as muscular weaknesses ranging from a barely perceptible slackening of the facial muscles to the dropping of the jaw or head and weakness at the knees. Some commonly reported psychological signs include a complete lack of attention to cultural discourse and an overall dissatisfaction with representative tropes such as metaphor, analogy and allegory. The best-known psychological signs of Kunst Angst are tedium, boredom and general disinterest.

In most cases it is triggered by sensory emotional responses (experiencing Art or that which is presented as Art)

KUST ANGST is serious.
