HEXEN 2.0 by Suzanne Treister
Part of the Science Museum Contemporary Art Programme
Hexen 2.0 is a project by British artist Suzanne Treister. It charts the coming together of diverse physical and social sciences in the framework of post-Second-World-War US governmental and military imperatives. The body of art works represent Treister’s research into the development of cybernetics, the history of the Internet, the rise of Web 2.0, mass intelligence gathering and the interconnected histories of the counterculture. Through her work she explores the implications of new systems of societal manipulation and the development of a 'control society' alongside historical and current responses to advances in technology.
