HEXEN 2.0 is a project by British artist Suzanne Treister that was on show at the Science Museum, London. HEXEN 2.0 charts the coming together of diverse physical and social sciences in the framework of post-Second-World-War US governmental and military imperatives. It investigates the development of cybernetics, the history of the internet, the rise of ‘Web 2.0’ and mass intelligence gathering and the interconnected histories of the counterculture, and 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.
