Ask Anything

There are a lot of basic questions on Mail Art that are often asked and answered. This group might be the first place to look for answers. I will do my best to answer, but hope that other members can help out as well.

yes,yes,yes we know this, but what can be done? send a letter to the mayor,

bomb the post office, make a demonstration, or just go to sleep.

Io dico che dovremmo insistere per far comprendere l'importanza di un movimento comela MAIL ART! Non sono molti gli artisti, critici e galleristi che la apprezzano.

I say that we should insist on understanding the importance of a movement like MAIL ART! There are not many artists, critics and gallery owners who appreciate it.

yes, thank u, nadia, the main page changed again after i posted them, and i know, i agree with you on the friends section, what??????

By the way, sorting the friends in chronological order doesn't work properly.

Comment by Nadia Aroca on February 2, 2018 at 10:50pm

In the main page is 2-1-3, so more strange yet. 3-2-1 is the order they appear in the photos page.

La mia visione della Mail Art, si modifica continuamente. Oggi penso che vada vista, pensata e vissuta come una grande Opera, un grande movimento in continua metamorfosi, nel quale noi siamo piccole gocce in un grande mare, in un "MARE MAGNUM"... E sia anche giusto operare nella Mail Art, ma anche ai bordi della Mail Art : con video arte, performance art, e web art. io oggi lavoro volentieri come webartista.

My vision of Mail Art is constantly changing. Today I think it should be seen, thought and experienced as a great Opera, a great movement in continuous metamorphosis, in which we are small drops in a big sea, in a "MARE MAGNUM" ... And it is also right to work in Mail Art, but also at the edges of Mail Art: with video art, performance art, and web art. today I work willingly as a web artist.

Digital communication is just a new addition to the ways we already had.

Comment by Bruno Cassaglia on December 15, 2017 at 9:59pm

Io, fino a poco tempo fa pensavo che la Mail Art potesse diventare completamente digitale, ma forse mi sbagliavo, noi mailartisti, grazie a siti come IUOMA  o Dodo Dada, possiamo tenerci in contatto e divulgare opere digitali senza abbandonare la carta che spediamo per posta... siamo io ctredo,  dei networker completi. siamo storici ma anche attuali.

I, until recently, I thought that Mail Art could become completely digital, but maybe I was wrong, we mailartists, thanks to sites like IUOMA or Dodo Dada, we can keep in touch and divulge digital works without leaving the paper we send by mail ... we are ctredo, of complete networkers. we are historical but also current
