An international mail-art and artist books project.
Curator - Mikhail Pogarsky
Concept: In the 60s mail art developed a separate art
direction and at the same time there was a growth of
interest tin the artist’s book. Mail art and artists’ books of
that time developed in the wake of a protest movement
against the commercialisation of art and the dictatorship
of the gallery system. Most mail artists of the 60s worked
with the artist’s book format as well. Some years ago, these
two areas occupied separate niches in contemporary art, but
the point of intersection between them, of course, remains.
Development of a dialogue between mail art and the artist’s
book is the aim of this project.
Practice: The artists create a mail-art message, dedicated
to the artist’s book, or vice versa - make an artist’s book
dedicated to mail-art. All sizes, all techniques
Exposure: The project will be presented at the 8th Moscow
International Artist’s Book Fair (Moscow, Central House of
