Hexen 2.0 in New York City

HEXEN 2.0 Tarot by Suzanne Treister

One of the most interesting Tarot decks I got last year was the Hexen 2.0 by artist Suzanne Treister.

It’s a conspiracy laden, politically radical, cybernetic, psychedelic, utopian/dystopian, science- and history-minded set of cards that surprisingly enough, gives really good readings.

I wouldn’t recommend it for romantic questions, but it offers some very astute observations when asked about politics, society and western culture in general.

Last year, original drawings of the deck and other materials in the Hexen 2.0 project were on exhibit at shows in England and Germany.

This year, I’m happy to report (via Phantasmaphile), that they’ve made their way to North America and are on display until February 23rd at P.P.O.W. in New York City.

I don’t think I’ll be able to make the show, but I’d certainly be there if I were in the NYC area. It looks fascinating. I wish it would come to Toronto.

HEXEN 2.0 Tarot

HEXEN 2.0 Tarot by Suzanne Treister

Suzanne Triester is the creator of the HEXEN 2.0 Tarot deck. And from the looks of it, it’s a Tarot reading conspiracy theorists’ dream deck.

Loosely based on the Golden Dawn system, Triester’s HEXEN 2.0 Tarot depicts the interconnected histories of the computer, the internet, counterculture, cybernetics, social engineering, government and military research projects, and the occult.

The deck is part of a larger project called HEXEN 2.0, which is presently on display at London’s Science Museum.

It’s a sequel to HEXEN 2039, and brings together large-scale alchemical diagrams, photo-text works, a film representing a cybernetic séance, and the Tarot deck.

The show runs through May 1st, and it’s free! The deck isn’t available yet, but it will be soon. I’ve got it on my wish list already.
