Decentralized Congress (1986-2016)

Nel trentennale dei Congressi Decentralizzati (1986-2016), per rimettere in circolo un patrimonio occultato di materiali ed esperienze “concrete” senza accontentarsi del grande emporio virtuale della cultura reso accessibile da Internet, ti invitiamo a rivisitare e animare il tuo archivio, mettendolo a disposizione di altri e ricercando inedite forme di incontro e sinergia con le più diverse raccolte e collezioni, al fine di promuovere un anno di archivi in movimento.

My only remaining archive after several moves one to and from Japan and other places consists of a couple of probably out of print books on mail art and artist stamps.  It is my intent to post photos/scans of some of the contents to make them available to the current and future generations of believers.  Two of the books are 1. Networking Currents by Chuck Welch and 2. Lettrisme: Into the Present by Stephen Foster.  The artist stamp book I am unable to type the name of because it uses a character set I'm unfamiliar with, it was from a show in Budapest in 1987.
