Event Description


An international mail-art and artist books project.

Curator - Mikhail Pogarsky


Concept: In the 60s mail art developed a separate art

direction and at the same time there was a growth of

interest tin the artist’s book. Mail art and artists’ books of

that time developed in the wake of a protest movement

against the commercialisation of art and the dictatorship

of the gallery system. Most mail artists of the 60s worked

with the artist’s book format as well. Some years ago, these

two areas occupied separate niches in contemporary art, but

the point of intersection between them, of course, remains.

Development of a dialogue between mail art and the artist’s

book is the aim of this project.

Practice: The artists create a mail-art message, dedicated

to the artist’s book, or vice versa - make an artist’s book

dedicated to mail-art. All sizes, all techniques

Exposure: The project will be presented at the 8th Moscow

International Artist’s Book Fair (Moscow, Central House of

Artists, 28/11-02/12/2012)
