Zeena's friend and frequent art collaborator, Frank Haines, releases his new book, Sandy Smiles, a memoir of his sound art tour through Europe last year. Within the pages, cryptic accounts of his meetings with Zeena are interspersed: "I mention wanting to visit Externsteine. Zeena speaks fondly of it, but feels the energy has become depleted, as people go there and absorb yet leave little in regards to offerings. As an alternative, she suggests I visit Heidentor outside of Vienna, the site of her 1990 Summer Solstice ceremony that she wrote a song about...[excerpt continues below in screenshot]" -FH
Sandy Smiles can be found at the HEINZFELLER NILEISIST* booth this weekend.
*Among the HEINZFELLER NILEISIST collaborative projects with Zeena, he compiled and presented The Zaum of Zeena for the 2015 NY Art Book Fair and created the Hemet-neter tepi Seth t-shirt for the 2016 LA Art Book Fair.
NOW BACK IN STOCK: Designed by HEINZFELLER NILEISIST as a companion piece to the 84 page book-zine The Zaum of Zeena, by the same publisher, this t-shirt was first presented at the LA Art Book Fair last year and can be purchased on our site HERE!!! Sizes in S, M, L & XL.
FRANK HAINES: “I designed this shirt of Zeena as The High Priestess of Seth (which she is).
This is the first authorized Zeena shirt to exist (there have been a bunch of bootlegs) with proceeds actually going to her.
A more detailed description of the shirt as follows:
'It's a magical talisman combining all the symbolism necessary to foster blissful union of the initiate's inner male-female erotic-war deity energies represented by Seth And His secret consort Inanna and presided over by their High Priestess in this era, Zeena.
The human mind is always at war with itself because the inner masculine-feminine polarities are not united but divided. As a result, the inner conflicts translate to outer destructive behavior and actions. Donning this article of clothing should be regarded as a ritual homage to the wearer's yet-to-be indestructible, non-dual state of perfect peace and spiritual completion
(Š-L-M ). A reminder that Liberation and Enlightenment comes when opposing forces become one.
For those not well versed in tantric practices, Gnosticism, ancient mythology and Magical Theurgy, it's also just a damn cool design to have in your collection!'

An Excerpt from a 1992 film by Zeena Schreck originally titled "GERMANIA: The Theory of Ruins". Filmed 25 years ago today at crossover from Walpurgisnacht to May Day, at the top of the Harz Mountains in Germany, home of the original Walpurgisnacht.
In this clip, the personification of the May Queen ushers in Springtime with a speech of rejuvenation for the Pagan New Year, the day after Walpurgisnacht.
The raw footage of "GERMANIA: The Theory of Ruins" is being digitally rescued from old VHS master tapes for re-release in a series of theme-oriented short films and sound art recordings by Zeena Schreck.
The subject matter will focus on the history of German music, cinema, art, pagan lore, natural landscapes and architecture.

KPOPSTARZ reports: "Need a little extra special magic for a romantic Valentine's Day? A new fashion art T-shirt may seem like it is coming out of left field but, coming from a magical icon, it is really only coming from a left hand path.
Zeena Schreck, announced that she will launch the new 'Zeena: High Priestess Of Seth' fashion-art t-shirt at the LA Art Book Fair, which runs from February 11 through 14, 2016.
The launch is being presented by Heinzfeller Nileisist, the same artist who presented "The Zaum of Zeena: A Collection of Interviews, Essays, Quotes and Images" at last year's NY Art Book Fair.
The special T-shirt was esigned by Frank Haines in cooperation with Zeena as a companion piece to The Zaum of Zeena art-zine."
"Zeena also announced she will be doing a live performance of ritual sound art at Kantine am Berghain Berlin on Feb 28, 2016. Zeena was asked to perform by King Dude and Greyzone Concerts & Promotion.
"Actually this happened on special request from the main act that night, King Dude," said Sabrina Debora Boller of GreyZone Concerts & Promotion told KpopStarz exclusively.
"I think Zeena as a person stands for many things, for spiritual enlightenment as well as for a strong cultural background. We are very honored that she will be performing.
Zeena is the Hemet-neter Tepi Seth of the Sethian Liberation Movement. She is possibly the most powerful and renowned magical practitioner alive today. Her tone art is inspired by her experience within the "esoteric, shamanistic and magical traditions of which she's practiced and taught," reads a statement on her website."

Launching the NEW 'ZEENA: HIGH PRIESTESS OF SETH' fashion-art T-SHIRT @ LA Art Book Fair Feb 11-14, 2016
Brought to you by HEINZFELLER NILEISIST, the same artist who presented The Zaum of Zeena at last year's NY Art Book Fair. Designed by Frank Haines in cooperation with Zeena, this fashion-art t-shirt is a companion piece to The Zaum of Zeena art-zine.
Launched in time for Valentine's Day and Lupercalia, this garment is no ordinary t-shirt.
It's a magical talisman combining all the symbolism necessary to foster blissful union of the initiate's inner male-female erotic-war deity energies represented by Seth and His secret consort Inanna and presided over by their High Priestess in this era, Zeena.
The human mind is always at war with itself because the inner masculine-feminine polarities are not united but divided. As a result, the inner conflicts translate to outer destructive behavior and actions.
Donning this article of clothing should be regarded as a ritual homage to the wearer's yet-to-be indestructible, non-dual state of perfect peace and spiritual completion (Š-L-M ). A reminder that Liberation and Enlightenment comes when opposing forces become one.
For those not well versed in tantric practices, Gnosticism, ancient mythology and Magical Theurgy, it's also just a damn cool design to have in your collection!

New Review of The Zaum of Zeena
by Luca Piccolo:
[La versione in lingua italiana di questa recensione si trova sotto il testo in inglese.]
The Zaum of Zeena, published by Frank Haines in 2015, is presented as a "collection of Interview, Essay, Quotes and Images" of the artist Zeena Schreck. Interviews closely analyze the most interesting aspects of the life, the thought and the philosophy that always accompanies Zeena. As is written in the first pages of this volume, "her art, like her music, is best understood as a non-verbal trans-rational branch of her spiritual teaching"; the best way to understand this is to read this text. In fact, Zeena's art is the main issue covered in the first interview presented in this volume, which happens to be my own interview with Zeena originally published in WSF (online art journal).
This is followed by excerpts from the interview with the author Konstantinos that focuses on exploring spirituality and the magical path of this artist. A theme which is then expanded upon in a different way in the wonderful interview with Che Chetty (for the School of Religion, Philosophy and Classics, University of Kwazulu Natal, South Africa), where certain aspects of Tantra are analyzed and investigated. In this series of questions and answers we see two alternating fronts: the accademic vs. the practical knowledge.
The interview by Maxime Lachaud, drops us completely into the musical dimension of the artist, and investigates mainly the work that Zeena made with recordings for Radio Werewolf. Also relevant to her work during Radio Werewolf is an extract from "Mythos Wewelsburg: Fakten und Legenden" by Daniele Siepe, in which the artist explaines the reason for a particular position/asana she takes in a scene from her Video Werewolf film "Germany: The Theory of Ruins" (1992). Both of these interviews make us reflect on the meticulousness that the artist uses for the realization of every single opera. With this in mind, it spontaneously came to me how the composition of this volume was not at all left to chance.
Also included in this collection are two writings by Zeena originally published in the Beatdom Magazine # 11 (referring to "Liberation under the Snow Moon," the story of a salvific mission to free captive wolves from a fur farm) and Vice Magazine ("A Tale of Two Birds and Tantric Meditation ").
All the interviews are linked together through a series of quotes and images, which greatly augment the value of the text and make for a most pleasant and smooth reading experience. Between the lines we also see beauty and clarity: perhaps the two most emotionally engaging effects of this pubblication.
This is a text that gives to the general public the opportunity to open up to the understanding of Zeena Schreck and her art. It is certainly a must read by anyone interested in the spiritual and artistic aspects of Zeena. But also for those who have only a marginal interest in these topics, it is still a treat.
2015 Naples, Italy
The Zaum of Zeena, editato da Frank Haines nel 2015, si presenta come una “collection of Interview, Essay, Quotes and Images” dell’artista Zeena Schreck. Le interviste analizzano da vicino gli aspetti più interessanti della vita, del pensiero e della filosofia che accompagna Zeena da sempre.
Come appare scritto nelle prime pagine di questo volume “her art, like her music, is best understood as a non-verbal trans-rational branch of her spiritual teaching”; il miglior modo per comprenderlo è leggere questo testo. È infatti l’arte di Zeena la tematica principalmente trattata nella prima intervista, quella di Luca Piccolo.
Seguono poi alcuni estratti dall’intervista con l’autore Konstantinos che fa convergere le proprie domande su questioni che indagano la spiritualità e il percorso magico dell’artista. Tematica che poi verrà sviluppata in un altro modo nella stupenda intervista con Che Chetty (for the School of Religion, Philosophy and Classics, University of Kwazulu Natal, South Africa), dove sono invece analizzati e indagati alcuni aspetti del Tantra, in questa serie di domande e risposte vediamo alternarsi due fronti: quello accademico e quello della conoscenza pratica.
L’intervista di Maxime Lachaud, ci cala completamente nella dimensione musicale dell’artista, e indaga principalmente il lavoro che Zeena ha compiuto con le registrazioni di Radio Werewolf; così come nell’estratto da “Mythos Wewelsburg: Fakten und Legenden” di Daniele Siepe, viene spiegata una posizione/asana che l’artista assume in una scena di “Germania: The theory of Ruins” (1992), from Video Werewolf film. Entrambe le interviste ci fanno riflettere sulla meticolosità che l’artista utilizza per la realizzazione di ogni sua singola Opera. Tenendo presente ciò, sorge spontaneo il pensiero che anche la composizione di questo volume non sia affatto stata affidata al caso.
Sono inoltre inclusi in questa raccolta due scritti della stessa Zeena già pubblicati su Beatdom Magazine # 11 (parliamo di “Liberation under the Snow Moon”, racconto di un’azione salvifica per liberare alcuni lupi) e su Vice Magazine (“A Tale of Two Birds and Tantric Meditation”).
Le citazioni e le immagini che compongono quest’opera fanno da anello di congiunzione tra tutte le interviste, e aumentano notevolmente il valore del testo, oltre a renderlo ancora più piacevole e scorrevole. Tra le pagine vediamo quindi affiancarsi la bellezza e la chiarezza: forse i due elementi emotivamente più coinvolgenti dell’opera.
È questo un testo che dà al grande pubblico la possibilità di aprirsi alla comprensione di Zeena Schreck e della sua Arte. Va indubbiamente letto da chiunque abbia interesse per il percorso spirituale e artistico di Zeena, ma anche, da chi ha solo un interesse marginale per le tematiche trattate.
