The End of Fear by Barbara Visser

End of Fear, The

A film about Barnett Newman's ever-controversial work Who's Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue III - and its vandalization and restoration, which made matters even worse.

THE END OF FEAR takes multiple perspectives on the important and fascinating questions raised during the painting’s lifetime, and asks if these questions are still pertinent to our current relationship with contemporary art. What makes something a work of art? Who decides this? What does it mean? And what is the value of art in economic, artistic, and social terms?
