This little booklet I made in the eighties for Ulises Carrion when I worked in his gallery Other Books And So. It was sent by mail and stamped by the postal system.
Great to have 8 pages; interview and work in this beautiful international magazine: Sentimental Journal from Linda Loenen and Helma Bongenaar. Lots of mail art from my archive! Correspondence nr. 5
Linda Loenen and Helma Bongenaar, the founders of Sentimental Journey came over to make photos of my Mail-Art, my studio, my Graphic Scores and me. A lot of work but excellent choices where made!
For research for the interview the editors Linda Loenen and Helma Bongenaar visited my studio. It is about communication, Mail-Art and my Graphic Scores 25 th of November
F.l.t.r. Helma, Linda and me with Mail-Art
For the new magazine Sentimental Journey the founders Linda Loenen and Helma Bongenaar came over to my studio for some research. I showed them my Mail-Art archive and my graphic scores. Both art forms started in the 50 tees and still have my interest.
It’s been quit a while since I was an active mail-art artist. I worked in Other Books And So with Ulises Carrión (his picture on the wall of my studio) and had my share of books, stamps, exhibitions etc.
These questions came in my mind: what is the meaning of mail art nowadays. Esp. in relation to all the communication we already have?
What does it do to for you?
Are there big players?
How does it work today?
How does mail art relate to other artforms?
I worked in the gallery:archive Other Books And So from Ulises. He had put this Stamp on my typed interview with him. Miss him..
