COMA projects

COMA represents a new artistic collective with its operation base in Portugal, having Mail Art as “background”.

  One of the reasons for its creation, due to the fact that the Mail Art movement is still very murky in portuguese territory, its participants and assets represent a very small niche of players.
  COMA aims to be a cultural emancipatory diffuser on the portuguese Mail Art scene, clarifying and approaching artists, curious and laymen to this art that has its origins in the 60s.
  As a collective, COMA's main functions, in addition to raising awareness of this artistic expression, are:

1 - Promote the artistic practice regardless of age, education, area, philosophical, religious and ethnicity of each individual.

2 - Organizing cultural events and exhibitions, thus underpinning national and international projects.

3 - Maintain an Universal network of contacts  between Mail Artists,providing their postal addresses and artistic virtual spaces, if authorized by them.

4 - Decoding the historical background and chronology of Mail Art in Portugal, establishing a database for future members reference and general public.

5 - Connect with different International Mail Art platforms, and creating cultural partnerships with the same.
 
 Briefly, COMA will be the place of present and future portuguese Mail Artists, that will establish a cordial, friendly and uninhibited dialogue among all mail art "lovers".

i would like to clarify some questions that arise about  COMA .

COMA website/blog will be in Portuguese and also in English?

- Is probably what will happen, but the official language will be ALWAYS the  Portuguese, becouse COMA is first of all to Portuguese artists and to other portuguese that join the Mail Art scene, but off course its for ALL MAil Artists over the world, COMA its the portuguese Plataform of MAil Art, like the italian DODODADA and others, and all are connected to IUOMA.

Jenny, like it said on the COMA statement, "COMA will be the place of present and future portuguese Mail Artists" but its also "Organizing cultural events and exhibitions, thus underpinning national and international projects." and "Connect with different International Mail Art platforms, and creating cultural partnerships with the same." its particulary to promote Mail Art in Portugal but ALL COMA projects are for the international MAil Artists like you, and "Take1 - Film and Mail Art?" Is the 1st international MAil Art project proposed and published by the portuguese COMA, and its for EVERY one. If you could be a member of COMA? yes you can !

"Take1 - Film and Mail Art?" Is the 1st Mail Art project proposed and published by the portuguese COMA collective and corresponds to a New Mail Art Call:

Calls to all creators, regardless of age, ethnicity, gender, philosophy and religion, to submit a ORIGINAL work, subject to the following idea:
THEME: TAKE1 - FILM AND MAIL ART ?
 " Film, being designated as the 7th Art, translates into the technique and ability to record and reproduce images with sense of movement, the works created called Movies, are produced by recording images of the world around us, with cameras, or using animation techniques and visual effects. Mail Art has no official number that designates it, but are many who adopted it in the past and present, as a manifestation of artistic expression, like in cinema, images, concepts, or other expressions, whether visual, tactile, sound or that explore other senses are developed and shared for a specific audience.
Both Mail Art and Film share a certain longevity, being different in form but not in essence, since both are means of communication and creativity that man has at his disposal. It is this tenuous link that is purported to be explored in this Mail Art Call.
"
