We are at war. At least that is what it said in the newspaper one sunny day. Terror, refugees, social relegation – what are people afraid of in a country that has been at peace for more than 70 years? For their “Atlas of Angst”, photographer Armin Smailovic and author Dirk Gieselmann set out on a journey through Germany. In interviews, photos and videos, they underwent a quest for “German Angst” and a feeling, medially conveyed, of insecurity and powerlessness. The results of their research are, among other things, a book and a play for the Thalia Theatre in Hamburg.
