Dear all Mail-Artists,

as a Germany-based cultural anthropologist, I am interested in how Mail-Art emerged, how it reacted to upheavals in the past, and how it deals with current social change movements. I work with postcards and their role in times of social and political upheavals. Therefore, I wanted to engage with Mail-Art as both an art form and a way of commenting on current events. For me, mail-art became one of the most exciting democratizing art forms around the globe.

So, this should be somewhat of an open call to send me your postcards that thematize your experiences with mail-art and social change – be it in the past or today – until June 15th.

I will be trying to set up a on-site mail-art show with the entries or a zine, but at least there will be an online showcasing of it. Furthermore, I'd love to use your pieces for my further research on the topic and if you are eager to speak to me personally about your experiences I am happy to set up a meeting. Also feel free to reach out with any questions you might have.

Please send your pieces to

Es ist ausgezeichnet! Ich bemühe mich.

Hi Flo, I will be sending you some mail art for your project this coming week. I find your research subject very interesting and it’s something that I’ve been thinking about myself as I’ve started with mail art recently. Cheers!
