MAIL ART WAVE 2022

 

Every 6 years the international art network goes to Congress to take stock of their state of health. In the tradition of the Decentralized Congress of Mail Art (1986), the Decentralized Worldwide Networker Congress (1992), the Incongrous Meetings (1998), the Obscure Actions (2004), the planetary Art Detox campaign (2010) and M.Y.A. - Move Your Archive (2016), you are all invited to participate in Mail Art Wave 2022, a collective project that takes place whenever two or more networkers meet in the course of 2022 to share new and extraordinary plans to save Mail Art (and planet Earth). We favor fighting hate campaigns, emergence of narrow nationalism, all forms of racism and attacks on democracy. And on the bright side we support eco-sustainable approaches to human life. Now more than ever, it is necessary to create a great, powerful and unstoppable wave of regenerating energy.

We Are Venturous Earthlings

We All Volunteer to save Earth

the least we can do is WAVE to each other

a WAVE to save our future

 

For over half a century, well before the advent of computers and digital technologies, the postal system has been one of the favorite means of communication for the free and direct exchange of materials and experiences between thousands of artists and authors in every corner of the planet. In recent years, smaller post offices have begun to close their doors and postal rates have grown exponentially, also putting the Mail Art circuits in difficulty. The pandemic emergency of the last two years has aggravated the crisis in international postal systems, with blockages, delays and problems in shipments and deliveries. Despite this, in an era of prolonged lockdowns and persistent social distancing, there has been a resurgence in popularity of postal art, a means more than others capable of bridging the gaps between people by creating physical as well as spiritual contact. Riding the wave of this revival of interest in postal activities, we need to promote creative and surprising solutions, ingenious and playful, pragmatic and visionary, to prevent the slow disappearance of Mail Art (and to save our planet).

 

INVITATION

 

WHO: in the inclusive and egalitarian spirit of Mail Art, anyone is invited to participate, without any limit of age or skills.

 

WHEN: at any time during 2022, for any length of time, whenever two or more networkers meet.

 

WHERE: in the homes and studios of artists, poets, musicians, writers, etc., in schools, universities, archives, galleries, museums and other spaces dedicated to art but also in squares, parks, streets or in anomalous and atypical places.

 

WHY: to share new ideas useful to prevent the progressive disappearance of Mail Art (and to save the planet Earth).

 

The Mail Art Wave 2022 Decentralized World Congress is a global non-profit experiment, promoted by DodoDada, E.O.N. Archive and several other independent entities, which intends through meetings, exhibition projects, conferences, workshops and synergies of various kinds to promote the need for a shared and eco-sustainable art, based on free exchange and commitment to the collective good. Collaborate with your own ideas and initiatives and document your contribution to Mail Art Wave 2022 with photos, videos, reports and

in any other way you deem appropriate, then insert the materials in the online group at www.facebook.com/groups/maw22/ ; and/or send them by traditional mail to E.O.N. Archive - Vittore Baroni, Via C. Battisti 339, 55049 Viareggio, LU, Italy or via e-mail to big_orko@yahoo.es and you will be included in the final documentation of the project. Anyone wishing to collaborate in promoting the initiative can ask Claudio Romeo (big_orko@yahoo.es) for the digital kit with coordinated graphics to produce and circulate stamps, postcards, stickers, banners, flags, etc

Please note: the t.a.z. project was CONCLUDED with issue n. 10 in Jan. 2022.

Le Forbici di Manitù - G.P.S./G.A.P.S.

Le Forbici di Manitù - GPS / GaPS - clear vinyl 12” album (BAU 14) - July 2017


The BAU Cultural Association of Viareggio assembles, produces and distributes since 2004 an annual magazine, BAU Container of Contemporary Culture, which collects in a cardboard box numbered and signed artworks of several international artists. Copies of BAU are housed in important libraries, museums, archives and collections, from the Mart of Rovereto to London's Tate Modern. In 14 years of activity, BAU has involved more than 800 authors from all corners of the planet, consolidating a network of contacts that is increasingly becoming a true "global participation system". The theme of issue 14 of the magazine, released in July 2017, is in fact “GPS - Global Participation System”: as a GPS system, BAU takes over the various "position signals" sent by creative satellites in its orbit, then suggests favorable trajectories and useful goals. Among the 70 authors of BAU 14, which has the peculiar shape of a cylindrical box (12 cm in height for 40 cm in diameter), there are historical figures such as Enrico Baj, Giulia Niccolai, Mario Mulas and Gillo Dorfles, young New Media authors like Lino Strangis and Max Serradifalco, starred chefs like Gualtiero Marchesi and Vito Mollica, sound experimenters such as My Cat Is An Alien, Paolo Tarsi, Fauve! Gegen A Rhino and Le Forbici di Manitù (see www.bauprogettop.net).


For BAU 14, Le Forbici di Manitù (Manitù Rossi, Vittore Baroni and Gabriella Marconi) recorded an album with two extensive "audio journeys", GPS - Gigantic Paradigm Shift and GaPS - Global Art Participation Systems, traveling in the direction of utopian goals and revisiting a synoptic history of the international underground art networks of the last century, from Pataphysics to Fluxus, from Mail Art to the Luther Blissett Project. The 12" clear vinyl disc is applied to an original circular cover (diameter 35 cm) by Emanuela Biancuzzi (www.biancuzzi.com), with graphic layout by Elisa Landini and Virna Zampolini. The disc was produced in a limited edition of 300 copies, 180 of which included in BAU 14, the remaining 120 available separately.

Since 1983, the enigmatic Manitù Rossi heads one of the most singular and eclectic ensembles of the Italian music underground. Le Forbici di Manitù recorded a dozen albums for esteemed international labels and are at ease in the most diverse sound idioms, from post-industrial noise to cover versions of pop-rock classics, from electronic minimalism to lounge jazz. Their most recent project is Tinnitus Tales (Sussidiaria, 2016), a triple themed album with the collaboration of some fifty musicians and visual artists. In the GPS and GaPS suites, Le Forbici di Manitù operate a singular mix of post-cageian serialism a la Reich / Glass / Riley and eclectic citationism, from Tomorrow's Sixties psychedelia to the New Wave of the B Sides, from Fluxus conceptualism to Situationist cut-up.

 

The disc can be purchased, either physically or digitally, via the Bandcamp page of the Sussidiaria label: https://sussidiaria.bandcamp.com/.  Alternatively, the 12" clear vinyl album, provided with digital download code, may be requested to Vittore Baroni, paying € 35 (€ 25 + 10 for postal charges) at the PayPal account of vittorebaroni@alice.it.
