BIANCA CASADY OF COCOROSIE RECLAIMS THE WITCH IN SECOND ISSUE OF GIRLS AGAINST GOD

Feminist arts magazine, Girls Against God (GAG), founded by multi-disciplinary artist Bianca Casady and co-edited with artist Anne Sherwood Pundyk, launches its second issue—a pocket sized book of practical magic—to be made first available at the New York Art Book Fair this September.

Following the success of GAG’s first issue, which sold out to an international readership and proclaimed a “collectors’s item,” the second issue investigates and celebrates spiritual healing, instinctually tying together the earth and women’s bodies.

Through essays, fiction, poetry, interviews and spells GAG Issue #2 delves into the roots of occult earth wisdom passed through generations of women against persecution and patriarchy. Texts are accompanied by rich black and white images ranging from pen and ink illustrations to enigmatic photography. The issue gathers around a collaborative photographic exploration between Casady and performance artist Melanie Bonajo entitled “Witchunt,” and also includes interviews with notable artists Carollee Schneemann and Suzanne Lacy.

GAG Issue 2 contributors include Eve Bradford, Trinie Dalton, Karolina Daria Flora, Mary Hanlon, Julie Higonnet, H, J.ZarA, Emely Neu, Kara L. Rooney, Jean Marc Ruellan, Minka Sicklinger, and Macho Mel Shimkovitz
