Heresies: A Feminist Publication on Art and Politics ran independently from 1977 to 1993. Each issue focused on a different topic such as food, theater, or ecology. Between the covers you’ll find photography, film stills, sculptures, paintings, poems, prose, memoirs, collage, and documentations of performance art. Contributors included Harmony Hammond, Ida Applebroog, May Stevens, Mary Beth Edelson, Sally Webster, and Amy Sillman.
Here is the homepage for the 2009 documentary on Heresies called “The Heretics”, directed by Joan Braderman. The site includes an index to the articles.
We have 24 of the 27 issues of Heresies in our back stacks. Come explore them.

Sports – Wrestling +++
Wrestling is an ancient art, and a glorious, however cheap hoax. Whether it be sumo, Olympic, or professional, all varieties take skill, athleticism, dedication, and in the case of the latter, bravado and character personification. The sport certainly attracts eccentric competitors. In the picture collection you’ll find 70 wildly gestural pictures (and lots of eyeliner).
