This long-awaited reprint reintroduces the popular companion tarot deck to Suzanne Treister's HEXEN 2.0.
HEXEN 2.0 Tarot features 78 alchemical drawings depicting interconnected histories of the computer and the internet, cybernetics and counterculture, science-fiction and scientific projections of the future, government and military research programmes, social engineering and ideas of the control society. Alongside these appear diverse philosophical, literary and political responses to technological advances, including the claims of anarcho-primitivism, technogaianism and transhumanism.
By re-examining these subjects and histories through the lens of occult belief systems and ideas of the supernatural, HEXEN 2.0 Tarot takes us into a mesmerising space in which we may imagine and construct possible alternative futures.
Acknowledging precedents such as the traditional tarot deck, the Rider-Waite tarot deck and Aleister Crowley’s Thoth tarot deck, Suzanne Treister has here produced a new tarot that allows the reader, or collaborative group of readers, to use the cards to reconfigure history and/or map out hypothetical future narratives.
