MATHIUS MARVELLOUS SHOP


This roller coaster ride through a retro-futuristic alternate history wonderland, takes as its jumping off point an imagined conspiracy in early 80s Malaga by a team of philosophers and scientists unhappy with the development of the Spanish Transition. Their goal? To wipe out half of humanity in order to build a new society that was more just, caring and predominantly female. This deliciously "bizarre" masterpiece from the Berlin-based artist duo of Paola Álvarez and Manuel Escorihuela, is a visually-captivating, deconstructed narrative brew of satire, surrealism and socio-political fire that uses design, fashion, music and performance art in the creation of a truly psychedelic experience it’ll be hard to shake out of your head.
