Mail Art Archives

Some Mail-Artists have been doing Mail-Art for a longer time and have saved all they get in, documented what they sent out, collected books, magazines and documentations, and before they knew it were the owner of a Mail Art Archive. Tell us more...

In case you haven't seen this, Jon Foster has obtained a box containing the material used in a mail-art show held in North Carolina in 1979. He has, so far, documented the contributors and continues to reconstruct the show. I think it's a fascinating project and a historical snapshot. Have a look!

Here is a scan of the catalog of the 2014 Phoenix Art Museum mail art exhibition. John Held, Jr. was one of the curators. Thx to Mudhead (Chris Reynolds) and Alyssum (Alyssa Moinet) for sending me a copy.

Just wondered if more mail-artists have photos available of their mail-art collections, their ARCHIVES ?

An interview w/ Michael And in "Huffington Post." He goes back to the m-a network, copy art, etc.

Susanna Lakner (Germany) has an excellent online archive of her assembling zines. Many IUOMA members contributed to those zines. They are a real snapshot of a historical era, and the archive is extremely well done. Nice work, IMHO

Generator was a great zine, especially in terms of vispo. As the contents page for this issue shows, Byrum brought together several generations of networkers, concrete-visual poets, Langpo, etc. etc.
