‘Claustrophobia/Agoraphobia’ (2008) by Damien Hirst is a continuing search through the blank spaces of human experience in preparation for a global cataclysm that hangs over humanity. In such conditions, each of us, on the one hand, is afraid of being isolated in a confined space (claustrophobia), and on the other hand, feels a threat from the outside world, trying to avoid a contact with society (agoraphobia).
