Special Event | May 12 | 6 p.m. | Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive
Country Women was a magazine published in the 1970s by women living in communes in the Albion Nation of Mendocino County. Back-to-the-land women banded together to create a resource for living outside the mainstream. A new collective working out of artist Fritz Haegs Salmon Creek Farm project in Albion has been studying the old issues of the magazine and responding with an update for contemporary women still looking for community to create sustainable, fulfilling, autonomous lifestyles. At this release party for the new publication, printed in the BAMPFA Art Lab, members of the collective read their contributions to spark discussion.
