Rosalind Brodsky: The delusional time-traveler

The other day in a comment to the article Rituals, Pop Stars and Conspiracy Theory, someone called Freeman a conspiracy poet.

Today brings us a conspiracy artist.

From The Prague Post (of the Czech Republic):
Suzanne Treister's "Hexen 2039" is a fantastical and perpetually expanding art project involving the artist’s alter ego, Rosalind Brodsky — a para-scientific researcher of the future who is occupied with new military-occult technologies being developed for use in psychological warfare. Like some character out of a novel by Thomas Pynchon or Umberto Eco, Brodsky is a delusional time traveler who works for IMATI (Institute of Militronics and Advanced Time Interventionality) in the year 2039, investigating ancient and contemporary systems, especially occult and military histories.

Through drawings, diagrams, videos, a Web site and site-specific interventions (or “performances” in art lingo), Brodsky mines the complex and seemingly endless links between conspiracy theories about behavior-control experiments by the U.S. government, Soviet brainwashing experiments, British intelligence agencies, occult groups, Hollywood, Disney, witchcraft in Eastern Europe and neuroscientific research connected to the U.S. military's Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations (PSYOP) program.
If that's not enough, she also ties in Aleister Crowley and the occult group Ordo Templi Orientis, Disney's Fantasia, MGM's Stargate and The Wizard of Oz, Russian biophysicists, the composer Mussorgsky (made re-famous by Emerson, Lake and Palmer's 1971 Pictures at an Exhibition), Chernobyl, the British spy group MI5, John Dee's crystal ball, Pavlov's dogs, the Illuminati, and, of course, those dastardly Freemasons.

Her show is now winding down in Prague, after a tour of San Francisco, Philadelphia, Brazil, Great Britain, and Germany.

  1. That's retarded. I can cut and paste any organization's name into that pyramid and post it on the Internet. Does that make laptop batteries it true? I guess to you it proves everything. You're obviously NOT a free-thinker.
