The personal need for belonging to any circle and its approval has been an inherent feature of human nature throughout the history of Earth civilization.

Along with real historical events or phenomena that could be interpreted as cases of mass obsession or hysteria, the curators of the exhibition are trying to answer the question - is there such a thing in the field of art?

Plots of witch hunts and examples of personal cults, urban legends and the consequences of molismophobia, methods of constructing an image of a common enemy, as well as intense discussions around scientific and technological progress are among the plots covered in this project.

The meanings and objectives of the exposition are to acquaint museum visitors with the range of subjects related to the phenomenon of social sensuality, and the design of the exposition itself is a search, a game, a specific action, in other words, an exciting quest.
