In this lecture we will be exploring the possibilities of occult aesthetics, what they are, where they’re found and how their presence in a resurgent visual feminist movement is fusing the political sphere with a new kind of girl power. One forged in the fires of ancient feminine energies and dark crone goddesses but finding its bare-footing in the lyrics and visuals of music videos, on social media and fashion houses. The occult is trending, the spiritual and the political fuse as one and teens across the world are steeped in ancient mysticism whilst fighting for social justice. Join us as we explore the uncharted realms of occult aesthetics and their increasing presence in today’s feminist movement.
