Mail-Art Statements

Beginning 2009 I published the book "Mail-Art Statements Collection" in which I collected all my writings and statements connected to this topic in one book. Roland started a group to circulate a booklet. Here you can directly publish your statements

"Mail art is just the residue of secretarial labor from the hand

of a good neighbor a thousand miles away

or a thoughtful angel

or some impish clown..." profound! (from richard c.)

1959 - Fluxmanifeste - "Il faut que l'artiste établisse son statut non professionnel non parasitique et non élitique dans la société.

Pour cela, il doit démontrer sa propre disponibilité. Il doit démontrer que le public peut se divertir tout seul. Il doit démontrer que n'importe quoi peut se substituer à l'art et que n'importe qui peut le faire. Donc que cet art doit être simple, amusant, et concerné avec des gens sans importance (culturelles) et ne doit pas avoir obligatoirement des valeurs institutionnelles. Que cet art est illimité, que tout le monde peut en avoir et que tout le monde peut en faire.

Tout cela est en contradiction avec l'artiste professionnel d'aujourd'hui qui, pour justifier de son revenu, doit démontrer que seul lui peut faire de l'art. Et qui essaiera donc de prouver que l'art est une chose complexe, intellectuelle, exclusive. Il essaiera de le rendre rare pour lui faire augmenter sa valeur commerciale et ainsi ne plus le rendre accessible aux masses mais seulement à une Elite Sociale." George Maciunas.

some samples of the millenium statements which I made in 1999. Some are still very interesting today
