I would like to have in this pages old Add and Pass with the Bath Tub with my image. In the beginning of the ninties I received and sent 4-5 BathTubAddandPasses everyday and it would be nice to know if/where they still remain nowadays.

ADD and PASS: loved and hated from a pair of decades at least! Because at the end for all mailartists it is love and hatred. At the end of the eighties and first nineties I received one sheet every day and sometimes also four or five sheets a day: what a job to work on all of them, to duplicate and multi-plicate and to pass! Sometimes I had not freetime for the other projects. But my obsession was the sheet with a bathtub. You had to put inside your image or face between the other one of mailartists. Those bath tubs arrived and arrived again. And the predominant address was always the same: Locust Valley, Ray Johnson. I hated him because he never answered. Only some years after I knew that the idea of ADD and PASS was by Ray; he never answered to those sheets but now they take part to the history of Mailart. He generally did not answer to anybody and he continued to launch some news, but he collected all sheets he received: now they are the history of  Mailart. Fortunately I did not put them in the trash, as many Mailartists did. I added and passed so many times as possibile.

Tiziana, non ancora... appena possibile proverò di nuovo... si tratta di buttare all'aria tutti i pacchi di carte conservati per anni, confusamente ...

Cercando alcuni foglio da postare qui ho trovato una lettera di Robin Crozier...

Il mio archivio è alquanto informale...
