Magazine. Art. Literary Nonfiction. Poetry. Secretary Press is pleased to announce the second issue of APRICOTA, a new journal of modern and contemporary art history and criticism. APRICOTA issue 2 focuses on cults, communes, and collectives and it tackles the primary question: Why do individuals choose to seclude themselves into utopian enclaves? From the editors: "Amid the calls for solidarity and engagement that sounded in the public sphere this past year, we sought, instead, to examine the fray, offered alternatives to mainstream governance. In cults, communes, and collectives, we reasoned, were models of living that could offer strategies in the face of our present political crisis." Contributors include Marina Adams, Lita Barrie, Kris Cohen, Norma Cole, Akina Cox, Jeff Dolven, Megan Driscoll, Robert Hult, Cat Kron, Jennifer Nelson, Julia Ramirez Blanco, Gemma Sharpe, Rebecca Solnit, Phil Taylor, Carmen Winant, and Chloe Wyma.
