Kathleen,
It may be interesting to read this: http://iuoma-network.ning.com/group/askanything/forum/topics/what-i...
"The Mail Art philosophy of openness and inclusion can be summed up in a few “considerations” of networking etiquette that are usually explicitly stated in the invitations (calls) to postal projects: a Mail Art show has no jury, no entry fee, there is no censorship, and all works are exhibited. The original contributions are not to be returned and remain the property of the organizers, but a catalogue or documentation is sent free to all the participants in exchange for their works. Although these “unwritten” rules are sometimes stretched, they have generally held up for four decades, with only minor dissimilarities and adjustments, like the occasional requests to avoid works of explicit sexual nature, calls for projects with specific participants, or the recent trend to display digital documentation on blogs and websites instead of personally sending printed paper to contributors".

I speak up for the interest of mail art and mail artists. I don't have established it for myself....And no, I don't feel robbed:)

It's an good idea that you've changed the conditions.

And yes I'm dutch.....!

Cheers!

Cheers!
