Mail art by Klaus Pinter (Vienna, Austria)
April 2, 2019 - Klaus Pinter in Austria sent me – by chance or design I know not which – an incredible example of “Old School” Trashpo that has been such an Eternal Network fave for approaching a decade.
I do not know Klaus Pinter from anywhere along “the long & dusty trail” that I can recollect. It is a great pleasure to make his acquaintance now. And as I used to say back in the movie-making days, Klaus came with an impressive calling card. In other words, I adore this mail art.
Of course I am still chided by a small but noisy minority in the peanut gallery when I present anything that is or might be considered Trashpo. The clarity, materiality & brilliant minimalism of this piece by Klaus Pinter should dispel lingering concerns about Trashpo that is rooted in Fluxus & Correspondence Art.
Deepest thanks to Klaus Pinter.

Empty! Nada. This, indeed, is Trashpo! And the reverse:
