Review of Hexen2039,
This review is from: Hexen 2039: New Military-Occult Technologies for Psychological Warfare, a Rosalind Brodsky Research Programme (Paperback)
This is the best book yet on Rosalind Brodsky (aka artist Suzanne Treister)'s obsessive and bizarre researches into some truly arcane practices and beliefs that link the work of the Elizabethan magus John Dee to the 20th-century satanist Aleister Crowley, and the creative minds at MGM, the CIA, MI5 & MI6, with some bizarre experiments in mind control practiced by the US army. Which only goes to show where all that bogus research can take you in this post-holocaust, post cold-war era, with an emphasis on mystic tendencies and witchcraft (Walpurgisnacht meets Karnevale) opened up by the internet. The drawings are great too. Some are rough psychic maps, others so intensely detailed that they are too impossible to follow are like great family trees that link everyone and anything. One series worked up in heavy lead pencil from photographs are apparently intended to act as semi-conductors for hidden codes. (Scanner not supplied). Don't get me wrong though, this is not meant to be the real things, although it does make you wonder at times.
