Statement written in 1986 by Ruud Janssen The Mail-Art network always is looking for new ways to communicate in a creative way. From sender to received in whatever medium there is. The Internet and Facebook haven’t changed that.
The times are changing, and in 2013 I wrote a new set of Statements. Distributed them through the digital channels this time.
In the year 1999 I was writing several statements, and I bundled them in the small booklet “Millennium Statements”. The individuals statements were printed and sent out though the mail. Also small booklets were printed and distributed. Because I made the stetements in a digital form, I still have them that way to, so I will share the set with you here. Some statements are still valid….
Some new statements in 2013 where published as a .PDF file too. New ideas you can see and read at: https://www.academia.edu/10918666/MAIL_ART_STATEMENTS_2013 They are new compared to the milenium statements, which are accesible at: https://www.academia.edu/10918705/Millenium_Statements_-_1999 This set is more historical. I wrote them in 1999 when the year 2000 was coming closer and a new meillenium was approaching. An unique event for us then, but it seems so far away now.
