outgoing collARTage to Marina Salmaso (Denmark) just to say hello, by using a new artistamp I carved and printed on a TAM rubberstamp. I put inside as well a add&pass sheet which I got from Bruno Chiarlone. The envelope is made out the recycled envelope Marina has sent first to Bruno, he sent it to me and now I sent it back to her. And the rest of the envelope I sent back to Bruno.

The catalogue is available at the cash desk of the Museum. Please, send your orders to firstname.lastname@example.org
Just an information given to all participants of the mail art project Mailartissimo, curated by Tricia Burr, last year. A catalogue was produced, but not sent out to the participants yet as far as I know, the show has already ended in January. I asked the museum now several times to get a copy of it because they used my mail art for the cover and did not ask me before, but I did not get any reply from the museum. Maybe every participant should ask as well. Try it out whether the museum is really a Museum of communication.

arriving mail art multiple "ashes of fluxsox" from Keith A. Buchholz (USA) - a next step of the conceptual fluxus art by Keith Buchholz; once he has sent me some old dirty socks, which I burned down in a fluxus performance (which you can see at http://fluxlisteurope.blogspot.com/) and sent him parts of the socks and the ash back. (see here: http://socks-stockings.blogspot.com/search?q=keith+buchholz) And now he used these rests of the ashes to send me this funny multiple, inside a kind of a black coffin you can see a little silver urn with a tiny little bit of the fired sock. One out of 3 multiples - one he has sent as well to Ruud Janssen (Netherlands). Mine was opend by the custum office at Frankfurt a. Main, they probably opened as well the little urn to look inside. Thank you very much. I think I have to create now a memorial or a grave yard for the ash of fluxsox.
arriving mail art "report of 2007" from K. Frank Jensen (Denmark) - Frank has sent an article about a bloody year - a field study emanation including some statements on mail art and his mail art call last year about the christmas tarot cards, he was coordinating for the italian Museum of Tarots. Thanks.
