Goblins explores the beasts we’ve loved, hated, and longed to be.
In a searing exploration of her personal obsessions and preoccupations—from disturbing 80s fantasy films and uncanny puppets in modern art, to sexual predators in music scenes and her longing to ‘become a goblin’ like her icons and fellow performers in DIY punk—British writer and musician Jen Calleja shows us the ways she has lived in relation to these base, hungry, selfish and carefree creatures.
Part of a collaborative series of publications between the UK's Rough Trade Books and the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic in Cornwall. The book series seeks dialogue with the culture and folklore of magical practice—artists were asked to create new work and collaborate on new projects that take their shape through a fascinating alternative history.
