Overview

One Hundred Thousand Solitudes examines images that have emerged from the Arab revolutions and from different Occupy movements throughout the world.

These images lead to the declaration of the coming of Messianic times – without a Messiah: the dead coming back to life, rivers turning into blood, people speaking in one tongue, the last becoming first, the reversal of historical order, men turning into women and vice versa.
