Cultivating Darkness

Under, 18 East Street, Stonehouse, Plymouth

A group of anonymous young occultists from the Italian suburbs remix the Western Magical Tradition into a contemporary theory and practice that offers a subterranean path of resistance to a disappointed generation, caught between the Left and the Right, the traditional and the modern, the physical and the digital.

Book launch event for the Gruppo di Nun’s Revolutionary Demonology, including an introduction to the book, a talk by Amy Ireland on the group’s radical transformation of the Western Magical Tradition, and a screening of two short films cited in the book as examples of ‘Italian Southern Gothic’: Magia Lucana [Magic from Lucania] (1958), and La Taranta [Tarantula](1962).
