Mail art artists are constantly working on their art. This is driven by the desire to network through the exchange of contemporary art, to place one’s message and to perceive oneself by reflecting on the impact of one’s own actions.
As a mail art artist, I receive works from all over the world. The flow of this contemporary art is a constant one. As an artist, my options are limited. That’s why I’m handing over all (!) preserved works to the Museum of Contemporary Art (MUARCO). As an innovative contemporary participant in the art scene, this museum has chosen a special way to develop its archive. It gives away this art.
In connection with mail art campaigns by contemporary artists, the works are distributed to people who are interested in contemporary art in general and in mail art in particular.
The mail art scene delights in the constant repetition of the mantra: “no curator, no fees, no rules!” – This may be a healthy mechanism to contain the expectations of mail art senders, but it does not have to coincide with the structured handling of the received art and its further use.
With the edition “You are the artist!” As part of the social sculpture “social-dada” I started distributing the works from the MUARCO archive.
Consider yourself lucky if you have a copy of this edition in your collection. Feel free to open it. It will increase in value like a very good wine.
