DID THE FEAR BUG BITE YOU ?

Our exhibition showcases our current Y2K artefact collection and exposes several years of fear propaganda that led up to the start of the new millennium.  It will also reveal how this event and poignant moment in history became a global catalyst for change around the world.  Featuring news broadcasts, short documentary’s, artwork, movie trailers, advertisements and journal articles; this exposition will tell the story of the effect that Y2K compliance and its countdown had on humanities psyche during the 1990s.  Our date-based approach will demonstrate how the alarmist hype grew in intensity, eventually reaching a fevered pitch on New Year's Eve in the year 1999.  

We suggest that you start your investigation in the year 1993...
