Zeena Schreck is more than just the prettier face of her DNA-spliced twin Taylor Swift, she is possibly the most powerful and renowned magical practitioner alive today. She is also an artist, musician and a published author whose book, The Zaum of Zeena, will be available in real life from the publisher at the eleventh annual NY Art Book Fair, from September 16 to 18, 2016, at MoMA PS1, Long Island City, Queens. Go to the HEINZFELLER NILEISIST booth in the zine tent, A21, just to the left upon entering. The fair is free and open to the public.
“The Zaum of Zeena: A Collection of Interviews, Essays, Quotes and Images” was written by Zeena Schreck, edited by Frank Haines and published by Heinzfeller Nileisist. Zeena also also co-wrote “Demons of the Flesh: The Complete Guide to Left Hand Path Sex Magic,” with Nikolas Schreck.
A few years ago, a 19-year-old fan who felt a deep “spiritual connection” with singer Lana Del Rey broke into her home to steal an old edition of the book The Satanic Witch, written by Church of Satan founder Anton LaVey with an introduction written by his daughter Zeena.
Zeena was three years old when she rose to national prominence for receiving the first public Satanic baptism in history on May 23, 1967. Zeena held the highest possible leadership positions in three of the most notorious occult orders of modern times as the High Priestess of the Church of Satan and the Temple of Set and was the Female Alpha of The Werewolf Order. Zeena rejected western occultism in 1990 and focused on the mystical practices of Gnostic Sethianism and the original eastern left-hald pat of Vedic Tantra (Shaktism) and Buddhist Tantra (Tibetan Buddhism). She is an initiated Tantric Buddhist in the lineages of Nyingma, Karma Kagyu and Drikung Kagyu.
The 11th annual NY Art Book Fair is being presented by Printed Matter. The NY Art Book Fair is the world’s premier event for artists’ books, catalogs, monographs, periodicals, and zines. Last year, the fair featured over 370 booksellers, antiquarians, artists, institutions and independent publishers from twenty-eight countries. The 2015 NY Art Book Fair was attended by more than 35,000 people.
