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.
If you want to be a building block for the first museum in a land that does not yet exist but to which I hold the blueprint, send a piece of mail art. The collection for Musiamo Cent will run for 100 days, as a fictional parallel to documenta 15. Submissions received from now will be entered with in-situ text into the museum collection on the 5Ft Storyhouse blog.

COPY / PASTE
Printing techniques were never far apart from the art world as some might think. Woodcut, typography, silkscreen, lithograph, stencil, rubber stamps, 3D printing, digital printing, ... are a short list of various means of reproduction within our reach that are also explored for their artistic expression. Although some of these media may have arisen purely for the sake of reproduction and others with marketing intentions ... others had arise with a purely artistic vision. However, none of these techniques, sooner or later, escaped artists who use them for creating multiples or for their material expressiveness.
It is therefore with this call and with this question in mind that we invite you to question multiples in artistic creation and printing techniques as expression, either through artworks or written statements.
On our previous curated mailart and artbymail open call and exhibition entitled "Hate Mail? for ya Fat F#uck", we've dealt with similar content as we've shown Claudio Parentela's artwork in the form of digital prints of his own digital collages... in a way raising the question: if physical prints of artwork meant to prevail only among the digital world may or not be considered art? We've also laid out a consonant scheme while presenting rough quality prints from scans of Rachelline Centomo's personal international mailart open call "La Muerte / Mientras la Vida nos Dure" that had happened at Mexico the previous year.
Exhibitions on tour through Portugal are ALREADY confirmed. We'll keep you updated by email. There will be a digital book to be shared and spread around free of charge to all artists and partners.

The Envelope as a Continent
The "MAREARTE" project is not an artistic association or a commercial initiative, but a cultural proposal structured through a traveling exhibition of paintings by the artist DIEGO RACCONI inspired by the world of the sea with some other works by fellow artists, whose purpose is to raise awareness of the protection and to the preservation of the underwater world.

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.
