In 2017 I got these catalogs of Mail-Art project in the mail. Above a project done by the Stickerdude (Joel Cohen) in NY – USA, and below two catalogs that Uli Grohmann (Germany) did. Although a lot goes digital thee days, the hardcopies are still my favorites. You can go through the pages, and digitize them, but the booklet will survive the times for sure whuile the digital images go into the websiotes and social media and somehow are difficult to find after some time…..
The spirit of Dada continues to thrive in this stunning annual collection of provocative and disruptive Dada-inspired art and writing culled from a plethora of top international contributors, with more than 100 color images. MAINTENANT 11: A JOURNAL OF CONTEMPORARY DADA WRITING AND ART is the latest edition of an annual collection of contemporary Dada work inspired by Dada instigator and Three Rooms Press spiritual advisor Arthur Cravan. This year’s theme, “An Eye for a Lie,” offers artists’ responses to the increasing madness of the world, punctuated by politically-charged art and writing. The journal is a full journey into the most imaginative minds in the world, showcasing work of artists and writers from more thirty countries on six of the seven continents. MAINTENANT is archived in museums worldwide.
As you can see,one of my recent drawings is included and I am in good company.
A large enveloppe arrived yesterday from Mr. Colori (Chaam, Netherlands). In is was a splendit catalog from the exhibition and project he did called : Van Bosch naar Bruegel, Bruegel after Bosch.
A full colour catalog with reprints of all the works sent in, and also a complete participant list. One of thos catalogs that remembers you from the past when these things were produced. Nowadays most mail-artists can’t find sponsors for such a very fine production. So I am very glad to have received this masterpiece. Will fit wonderful in the archive. And please don’t forget that the exhibition can still be visited in Den Bosch, Netherlands. Have a look at the website for details:
