#Studio202X 4: Unsafe Mind – Anxiety, Isolation, Authority

Part 4 of #Studio202X, moderated by journalist Daisuke Tsuda, examines the impact of drastic limitation of social life due to the corona crisis on the mental state of individuals and society as a whole. Which groups in society are especially affected by the measures of `Social Distancing’? How can we maintain a social network that protects people in crisis situations from losing their ground, despite the minimization of personal contacts? What is the effect of the reduction of our spatial and social scope of activities on our mental condition, and how does the current situation change our relationship to authorities? Can the Corona crisis at best become a catalyst for new forms of solidarity that will unite our society?
