HEXEN 2.0 Tarot by Suzanne Treister

I wrote about the Hexen 2.0 Tarot by Suzanne Treister back when it was still in the making. I’ve had an actual copy of the deck for a few months now and have to say that I just love it.

It’s certainly not a standard deck, and I wouldn’t suggest it for anyone trying to learn traditional Tarot imagery and structure. But for those people already familiar with Tarot and interested in politics, you might want to check it out.

Its focus is on the history of the internet, the Macy Conferences, technology, the military, and concepts of utopia.

And though it has a conspiratorial feel about it, you don’t have to share the deck’s world view to find it useful.

I’ve been using it to ask questions about the political, social, and economic situations we’re facing today and have come up with some truly remarkable readings.

For those of you who happen to be in Dortmund, Germany over the next month and a half, you can see the original Hexen 2.0 images in person. HMKV in the Dortmund University is showing the series through July 22nd.

Go see it if you can. And if you can’t, consider getting yourself a copy of the deck. It’s one of the more interesting I’ve come across in a while.
