highbrowlowlife · Trapartisan Radio – Episode 3, with Carl Abrahamsson & Steven Cline

Carl Abrahamsson talks to American surrealist Steven Cline about his new book “AMOK!”, collage-making, mail art, playing games with Atlanta’s surrealist group, sources of inspiration and much more…

On “AMOK!”: In this collection of recent texts, American surrealist artist Steven Cline has opened the floodgates to his inner worlds, demanding that we take a look. When we do, we are irrevocably drawn in further by a force that resembles our very own curiosity. Is this a mirror or a windowpane? Are these mesmerising thoughts and short essays catapulted from an overarching Zeitgeist or from a very talented writer who desires to express himself? Or both? No matter what, once you have begun reading, you are in it for a thrill ride. Steven Cline is a compelling author, weaving surreal and sensual spells until all resistance is futile… You might as well step right in!

In this first episode of Trapartisan Radio, Carl Abrahamsson talks to his wife, psychoanalyst and artist Vanessa Sinclair, about their recent book “It’s Magic Monday Every Day of the Week.” The focus on personal experience, ancestor veneration, intimate honesty, and avoiding possibly toxic group dynamics in magical practice, has made their ideas and formulations popular on many platforms, including Patreon. The “Magic Monday” book anthologises the first year’s essays, texts, and artworks from Patreon, and as such is a unique hotbed of radical esoteric thoughts and ideas.
