Biefer/Zgraggen enumerate future doom in 105 numbered prophecies. In its disguise as a religious tract, it is a conscious fiction aiming at the present. What at first looks like glimpses of an apocalyptic world to come, has already come to pass. Photographs of objects excavated after a future catastrophe reflect the deeply catastrophic nature of archeological gestures. A disorienting reflection on the present as it is refracted by the rhetoric of apocalypse and archeology.
