Critical Magic (2016)

Critical Magic is a concept developed by artist Nahum Mantra that consists of using magical effects to address critical issues. This ongoing project and research explores the possibilities of creating new, and impossible, imaginaries where social, political and economical models are challenged by the power of false perspectives.

The strategies used for creating such events include traditional trickery such as hypnotism, vanishings, mentalism, levitation, and apparitions amongst others. For No Such Thing As Gravity, Mantra will deliver an evening of hypnotism performance. Documentation of performances are available as installation works.
