In art we were given an art project on a social / political issue.
This is such a cliched theme but I decided to go very subtle and choose a social issue that I can identify with - Angst.
This seems to be a very insignificant issue compared to rape, abortion etc etc but for the people who experience it know how significant it really is.

Anxiety: a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome

Angst can also be linked with existentialism: the term was first attributed to Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard. Kierkegaard used the word Angst to describe a profound and deep-seated condition of insecurity and fear
in the free human being. Where the animal is a slave to its instincts but always conscious in its own actions. [wikipedia]
