OF12: The Armageddon Edition

The Armageddon edition.

Let it be a giant asteroid hitting the earth, the ultimate economical crisis, the third world war, the return of the big reptiles due to the Earth overheating, or a bunch of helicopters dropping napalm accompanied by Wagner’s /The Ride of the Valkyries/: Apocalypse is indeed not just a specialty number of religious fanatism and more or less articulated esoteric discourse.

One or more of its possibile declinations – the end of the human species, the end of the Planet Earth, the end of a small or a big part of the universe as we know it – happen to be options considered and studied by people like astronomers, economists, biologists, historians, visual artists and fiction writers, to name a few. Occultofest invited some of these people to come and tell us about these considerations and studies: where they come from, where they are possibly going, how they are connected to the past or present history and to other fields of study. 

And put together a soundtrack.
