PARANOIA - @ The Freud Museum, Curated by Predrag Pajdic

…the proximity of art and life against the backdrop of contemporary politics exploring issues of distrust, suspicion, delusion, fear and terror.

The world is witnessing dramatic and shocking events, which create an atmosphere of uncertainty and unease. The destruction of the World Trade Center and more recently the London Underground attacks sparked the chain reaction of events that are shaping future prospects of the world through horror and terror. Fictional apocalyptic stories are worryingly similar to everyday reality, causing increasing fear and creating a climate of anxiety. When does the mind become paranoid?

Presenting works of international artists exploring the essence of paranoia as one's deluded interpretation of events, not the perception of the events themselves. Artists exhibiting in PARANOIA are from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds, many from the world’s areas of conflict. The exhibition incorporates digital technology, conceptual work, performance, photography, video, installation and drawing.
