new military-occult technologies for psychological warfare
a Rosalind Brodsky research programme


In 1995 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.

Consisting of drawings, interventions, a film, a website, a book and an event, HEXEN2039 charts Brodsky's para-scientific research towards the development of new mind control technologies for the British Military.

HEXEN 2039 uncovers/constructs 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), in light of alarming new research in contemporary neuroscience.


HEXEN 2039 was originally shown across 5 London venues in 2006 including Chelsea Space, the Science Museum, the Warburg Institute, the British Museum, the Goethe Institute and Ognisko Polskie.

HEXEN 2039 was later shown around the UK and internationally in different forms.
