It is known as one of the worst crimes in contemporary art history: the murder of artwork ‘Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue’. Barnett Newman’s massive abstract work was slashed by a visitor to Amsterdam's Stedelijk Museum in 1986. With a highly inventive approach, filmmaker Barbara Visser revisits not only the shocking crime but the equally sensational calamities that followed, namely a botched restoration and a contentious fraud trial. The End of Fear doesn’t point the finger, but it makes us ask ourselves: when does a work of art – an object or an idea – cease to exist?
