The doomsday scroll is the new vertical roll, visualized by Joan Jonas on a cathode ray tube as a psychological hammering of additively endless repetitions. Half a century later, as we scroll on tiny screens, a flicker fuck of information hypnotizes us in bed, making
us vulnerable to algorithmic targeting. Nets are cast and prey is captured for mind manipulation and false truths. Essentially, a cult-like zeroing out of the individual.

We need to shake shit up.
So to all those anti-vax and toxic mascs, we cast a spell:

You better watch out Oh, what you wish for It better be worth it So much to die for

Hell, Yes! is an attitude, a perspective and a position of aggressive optimism: lipstick, nail color, high femme weirdness and a queering of norms. Cutting through the noise of the attention economy in order to champion heterogenous points of view and resist a leveling out. The machine of pop culture is operable only with the energy its fandom brings as fuel and fire. And at this moment when the digital reigns supreme, bitches and witches and their friends put their handicraft where their witchcraft is. Stitching their spells and sending the rest into the flames.
