Be careful when you send mail art to China. Put the mail art in an envelope, don't work on the envelope. Don't mail too much to the same person. Chinese who have frequent contacts with "foreigners" become suspects and targets of the regime. I say this by experience.

Thank you for this group, Ruud. 'Will be sending mail art in envelopes as I usually do. (it is so less "confusing" for my Greek postal clerks!) But I will try a bit of envelope art. However, I will avoid the word "art" on the outside of the envelope, simply because of customs misinterpretations. Let's hope they go through!

Since mailart is usually a card not in an "explosive" envelope or politically offensive, I would assume it would go through. Was the address right?

I'm with Judy - China has awesome art - and Chinese students I've met at US universities are often really enthusiastic about mail-art and collaborating. It's a great way to keep in touch. Glad this group is here.

Disculpen que no escriba en ingles, pero lejos estoy de poderlo hacer bien.
En cuanto a este tema de China, estuve viendo la dirección de Horst Baur en
la consulta es ¿si yo envio una carta a esa dirección se la estaría enviando a Horst Baur o a un posible mail artista chino?
Por ahora preparare el sobre.
Salud!! a todos.

yes, actually I will go to sleep quite soon.

Setting things up like this isn't that difficult. I have 35+ experience with computers and work all the time with them (actually in day-time I am teamleader at a larger ICT-college).

Step one is to have some addresses of Chinese Mail-Artists we can send mail-art to. Maybe first 'traditional' envelopes to establish contacts, and lateron we can see if the gouverment does set limitations. Getting Mail-Art back is the second goal. We can publish all three elements here. So: Adresses, Mail-Art sent to China, Mail-Art received from China.
