Henbane : Country Womyn Revisited book release at BAMPFA

Book release of collaborative intersectional feminist and DIY magazine project titled "Henbane" at the Berkeley Art Museum in Berkeley, CA. It is based on the former Country Women magazine printed in the 1970's in Albion, CA. We curated the project at Salmon Creek Farm in Albion, one of the communes that members of the original editorial collective lived during the time of Country Women's heyday. We have redone the magazine, paid homage to the things we liked and done away with the things that needed improvement and came up with our own version.  Some of the original contributors have written for the new magazine. This is a project that has been nine months in the works.
