... the catalogues came from the printer ...

Post für Otto - A Mail Art Project
hopefully they will be sent out from the beginning of June, step by step, so be a bit patient, each copy will be a bit different and unique, it is a numbered edition with an individual piece of art on the front page, so it take some time. If you would like to order more copies let me know right now. I think the subscribed price will be about 8 € plus shipping. 92 pages full colour version, size 21 x 21 cm, little introduction in german, english, italian and french. I think it should not be missed in any mail art archive.

... Holy Bismarck for the artomat ...

... an idea for the poster ...




finally my portrait relief made out of bridge bars, old and rusty paper clips and iron binders ec. has been finished ... the iron waste came from the public archive and should have been thrown away; so I decided to recycle it in that way


I made the proposal to make a poster out of it, maybe it will be worked out as a poster with repeating patterns. here an idea of it, it is up to the graphic designer now, what will come out ...

... some views into the exhibition in progress ...
