I stamped a cat stamp on Mac Donald paper bag and cut and pasted on postcard.

info IUOMA

Somehow people always think that if a group of artists work together that then there must automatically be some kind of organisation that coordinates it all. Well, in mail art there are many groups working together. These groups themselves also work together, but there is NO organisation that arranges all the things that go on in the mail art network. The I.U.O.M.A. is the Union that mail artists can become a member of. The Union has no rules. Everybody who is active in mail art and hears about the Union can become a member just by saying so.

In 1988 the idea of the IUOMA was born. I invented this name and made forms for people to become a member of this (fictive) union. About 300 mail artists reacted in a year, and official membership cards were made, even a official Union Magazine was published. Anybody who was a member of the Union could also claim a special function within the Union.

Even today, people still join the Union. And somehow it gives power, to say that YOU are a member of the International Union too. The Main address of the Union is at the TAM-address, P.O.Box 1055, 4801 BB - Breda - Netherlands. It is just the center for archiving all the things that are going on. But I am not in control of the Union. I just invented it. And to make it official, I made myself General-President of this Union. Sure was impressive when I travelled to the USSR in 1991 and went to visit some friends there who were also members of this Union........

Today online on Ning there are almost 4000 members....

SEMIOTICAMENTE/ Marcello Diotallevi a Villa Carlotta

SEMIOTICAMENTE/ Marcello Diotallevi a Villa Carlotta L'esposizione prende lo spunto dai lavori di Marcello Diotallevi, uno dei più noti mail-artisti Italiani. Attraverso l’esposizione di libri, documenti, opere d’arte e reperti naturali, si mettono a colloquio i semi quali elementi primari, principio di vita, fondamento di tutto ciò che esiste in natura, non da ultimo, dell’espressione artistica. Nella splendida cornice di Villa Carlotta, a Tremezzo, antica dimora,  diventa cabinet de curiosités. Libri antichi e incisioni, documenti e memorabilia, volumi e cataloghi botanici dialogano e si confrontano con l’arte di Marcello Diotallevi in un suggestivo percorso espositivo a contatto con alcune sculture del Canova e l’Ultimo bacio di Hayez, il quadro più famoso del romanticismo italiano. La mostra “Semioticamente”, a…See More
