Hans Hess (1951-2019) was one of the most original artists in the mail-art-network and various projects were started by him.
With your help we would like to create an exhibition for him. It will be shown in our art-cellar in 2021 to celebrate his 70th birthday.
Marlies Steinau, his wife, is looking forward to your email.

POMO III (POSTMODERN) INTERNATIONAL MAIL ART EXHIBITION
Words for new utopias. Words against system's headaches.
Caught in a second confinement that plunges us more and more into isolation and face to face with societal dysfunctions we invite you to take part into a mail art project: “Words against system headaches / Words for new utopias”.
Indeed words are not innocent. Words are not neutral, they are socially situated and criticism of their use, of their meaning should be part of the political struggle.
This mail art proposal is part of the CEPAG’s campaign “Social struggles pass also through words” which looks into the misuse of words, their impact on the surrounding culture, and their political evolution.
Economic, political, class, gender, age, ethnic origin… Words and their use participate in the reproduction of bonds of subordination and in the social positioning of the speaker.
This mail art proposal is the opportunity to give free rein to your imagination, to re-appropriate words, and give them their meaning back.
Speaking out through mail art to denounce the system’s headaches.
Speaking through mail art to affirm new utopias, new imaginations, new cultural and political identities.
Dante: ...a riveder le stelle
In 2021 we remember the 700 years since the death of Dante Alighieri, a character who does not need any introduction due to his universal greatness. Even though his times may be long gone, the message he left us is still current and alive. With this thought we invite all those who want to participate in this Mail Art Call: Dante citizen and contemporary witness of the world.

... I love the oppressed, I hate the oppressive kingdom ..." These are some of the words that appear in one of the texts of the rapper Pablo Hasel, arrested in Lleida on February 16, 2021 with the accusation of apology of terrorism and insults to the Crown. At the end of August, Hasel will be in prison for 6 months. From the day of his arrest, demonstrations followed one another with massive attendance in the main cities of the Spanish state. In these demonstrations, which lasted more than 10 consecutive days, the relationship between photographers, protesters and the police was strained. Arrests, repressive acts of the police on the demonstrators. On the first day of the rallies, even a girl lost an eye due to the use of rubber bullets by the police. Still under investigation. While the position between oppressed / protesters and police/ oppressors is clear, what is the position of the photographers? At the moment when the Hasel debate is a debate on freedom of expression, how far do we have to be neutral with respect to our labor standards, and how? It is no mystery that the mass media are a perverse tool of political propaganda: for this reason, we want to promote emerging, independent and alternative photography, where we can debate, create a new narrative, generate spaces to tell this stories with freedom, supporting the cause Pablo Hasel without censorship and through our works. With freedom of expression in all its forms.
A MAIL ART call for work in postcard format, being held on the same day and in the same space as a Vintage Postcard Show and Sale. One goal is to make some connections between the collectors and vendors and modern-day mail art. We expect to have lots of interesting meetings between two very different groups of postcard fans.
The venue is a beautiful, historic church hall in central Philadelphia. The postcard sale will be on the floor of the hall; we will display the mail art up on the stage area. If you include your mailing address on your work, we will add it to a wall poster with mailing addresses of all participating mail artists.
Many postcard shows put the work submitted into archives. We approve of this practice, but for this show, we will do something different, more in the nature of how postcards and mail art as a pop practice.
In the weeks following the show, we will visit Philadelphia’s many good bookstores and carefully place the works inside art books. In this manner, the cards will be seen by a new audience, selected by fate.
Welcoming a child even if for a short time is always a beautiful love story!

I Think About Mail Art
MAILART CALL FOR SINGULAR SUBJECT
What? Does it go through the mail? Do we have the right to send this?! And even that! Mailart with objects always raise a lot of questions and exclamations.
MAILART CALL FOR SINGULAR SUBJECT
What? Does it go through the mail? Do we have the right to send this?! And even that! Mailart with objects always raises a lot of questions and exclamations. I am calling for a singular object. Sort through your cabinets and send me a more or less flat object that might be exposed! Do not wrap it, please!
