Artists Anonymous, a group of collaborative artists from London and Berlin,presents Virus, the final instalment of their multi-sensory anti-superhero epoch, Apocalyptic Warriors, a series of shows executed and exhibited over the past three years in New York, London, Berlin and now Zürich.

Each exhibition in the Apocalyptic Warriors' series is devoted to a single 'Warrior', of which there are six: War, Drugs, Hunger, Pollution and Overpopulation, Death and finally Virus. Artists Anonymous aim to personify the intangible concepts of each of these themes, interpreting and appropriating them through a series of interactive installations, encompassing the Zeitgeist of modern life.

Aspects of Greco-Roman mythology, pagan gods, the Anti-Christ and other familiar icons of both ancient and modern spiritual philosophies converge to create the Apocalyptic Warriors, ironic champions of society's vices, phobias and self-inflicted suffering.
