My Website (without http://):
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I like communication, art, paper, painting and concepts. The ideal combination for doing Mail-Art. Worked with rubberstamps as a child and started sending out letters as soon as I could write. Discovered that it was called mail-art in 1980. Have been discovering ever since and in the last years also promoting this free cultural exchange.

Hello Ruud,

I hope you are well and have survived all the Covid waves.

I have been sent information about the 'Mail Art Wave 2022', and am unsure what to do about it, and so would like to hear your views on it.

It seems to be some sort of rival network to IUOMA -- to which my first loyalty lies.

I could join in the 'wave', but not if it is jeapordises the position of IUOMA in the Mail Art world.

With that, I wave, and say, goodbye;

Regards, Val

Hi Ruud, sorry to come again with my problems to you but I worry that you may be paying for a certificate that does not work anymore.
Since last week nearly all the illustrations are gone again and I tried to open IUOMA in my phone it told me the site was 'unsecure'
In My Photos Album 'Heeeeelp!are the screens I got on the phone.
This is the only way I managed to contact you. The symbol to attach graphics to messages has gone too so I could not attach the photos here. It worked two days ago even if the photos did not.Is it only for me?

Hi Ruud, I tried to use other devices. Same problem on phone but on another laptop it can't connect to the site. Says IUOMA ning is taking too long to respond. All other websites are working fine so I don't think it's my internet either.

The money will be used to keep the IUOMA-platform alive. Current donations keep platform online till 1-feb-2024. If you want to donate to get IUOMA-publications into archives and museums please mention this with your donation. It will then be used to send some hardcopy books into museums and archives. You can order books yourself too at the IUOMA-Bookshop. That will sponsor the IUOMA as well.
