Prophets of Deceit examines messianic and apocalyptic cults, predictions, and prophecies as systems of restraining social behavior and how those systems ultimately influence the outcome of history. The exhibition considers the degree in which prophetic guidelines--set either by powerful individuals, extreme religions or unexpected events--play in shaping modern economic, cultural, political, and social frameworks.
