Protektorama—The World Healing Witch

Apr 23, 2014

Protektorama–The World Healing Witch organizes an ‘Organic Light Emitting Processiorama’ (OLEP) into New York’s spheres of lights, signs, and signals. Equipped with a folky-futurist world healing carpet and her cheat-sheet walking-sticks, the spiritual materialist WorldWideWitch leads the attending congregation through a public preaching of her central thesis: humankind is possessed by the abstract principles of capital, and thereby has rendered itself to be a prosthesis of its own digital devices. Protektorama’s first pop-up ‘neo-akhara’ is part of a new age of attacks against the ghostly empire of the capitalist relations of production and their mega-info commodity streams.

Please note: It is essential that parishioners bring their own headphones to participate in Protektorama’s world healing ritual.
