Event Description

2013 - International Year of Water Cooperation

The United Nations dedicates the year 2013 to water cooperation. We are launching a global invitation to nations and cultures to express through art specific features using a universal connection: WATER, the symbol of life on Earth.

The "Inter-Art" Foundation Aiud wishes to bring a tribute to the Mail Art phenomenon, which, over the years, has brought an alternative approach to the field of art. Mail Art was the only way to display on an international level works by thousands of artists from different countries of the world.

Along with other organizations and people from over the whole world, the "Inter-Art" Foundation Aiud contributed efficiently to the evolution of the phenomenon, offering 20 different themes and hosting hundreds of participants from over the world.

The 20th anniversary wishes to be a complex exhibition, inviting artists from all member countries of the United Nations to participate. Through this project we hope to include a list of participants from all 193 countries and to prove that, through art, we can bring about a better world - one of freedom and coexistence, of cooperation and understanding, and of unity between people, nations, and cultures.
