     HEXEN 2039 charts Brodsky’s para scientific research towards
     the development of new mind control technologies for the
     British Military through a series of drawings and diagrams, a
     video, website and site-specific interventions. This complex
     body of work uncovers links between conspiracy theories,
     occult groups, Chernobyl, witchcraft, the US film industry,
     British Intelligence agencies, Soviet brainwashing, behaviour
     control experiments of the US Army and recent practices of its
     Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations Command (PSYOP) and
     new research in contemporary neuroscience.

     “HEXEN 2039 offers us an inverted, riotous version of a
     sociopolitical history that stands in kaleidoscopic opposition
     to the homogenised, narrow flatland of the capitalist march
     forward. Treister’s constructions belie a deeper mission: to
     explore how we make sense of history and the politics of war.”
     (Jane D. Marsching)

     In 1995 artist Suzanne Treister created the fictional alter
     ego Rosalind Brodsky, a delusional time traveller who believes
     herself to be working at the Institute of Militronics and
     Advanced Time Interventionality (IMATI) in the twenty-first
     century. Through Brodsky, Treister explores issues of history,
     global politics, religion, popular culture, sexuality,
     science, technology, the military and theories of the future.

     The Rosalind Brodsky project has been described by Art in
     America as “One of the most sustained fantasy trips of
     contemporary art”.

     Suzanne Treister studied in London at St Martin’s and Chelsea
     Schools of Art and currently lives and works in London and
     Berlin. Treister has shown internationally since 1981. Recent
     exhibitions include: ‘Operation Swanlake’ at Annely Juda Fine
     Art, London; Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin; Gallery Skuc,
     Ljubljana; Magazin4, Vorarlberger Kunstverein, Bregenz; ‘(The
     World May Be) Fantastic’, 2002 Biennale of Sydney; ‘Don't Call
     it Performance’, Centro de Arte Reina Sofía Madrid and El
     Museo del Barrio, New York, USA.
