Operation Mind Fuck: the experiment that fucked itself

Authors DAVID BRAMWELL (No9 Bus To Utopia, Odditorium) and  JOHN HIGGS (Stranger Than We Can Imagine, Making Sense Of The 20th Century) take the audience on a rollercoaster ride through the outer edges of 60s counterculture and how an experiment to launch chaos, culture jamming and trickery into the world to ’shake people out of their reality tunnels’ got seriously out of control.


From goddess worship and the Church of the Subgenius to Burning Man and Pepe the Racist Frog, this talk winds its way through some of the strangest corners of counterculture in an attempt to demonstrate that fake news has been around a lot longer than we think!
