Museum of Temporary Art

The Museum of Temporary Art


You are invited to participate in The Museum of Temporary Art, our ongoing project. We are looking for small objects (size 3,5 x 3,5 x 7 cm) connected to a story, which makes the objects valuable and special.


Please see http://www.museum-of-temporary-art.com/participate.html for more details and for the exhibit sheet, which you should fill out and send together with your contribution, if you want to participate.


The newest 33 exhibts are in the real Museum of Temporary Art and can be seen on the website: http://www.museum-of-temporary-art.com/.


Replace the exhibits and keep the exhibition alive.

Robert Ruscoe: Rubber Madness

Robert Ruscoe, my partner at Lalande Digital Art Press Paris, is also a mad rubber stamper. He's created more than 1000 works in rubber. Here he is stamping away at the 2003 Mail Art exhibition in Paris organized by Christian Balmier. That show included a number of artists including Michel Hosszù, Daniel Dagliand, Laurent Rousseau and for the closing, became the embassy launchpad for Liz Stirling's Liz Vegas. Needless to say, it was a scream in Pink.

This piece (right), is the newest in our Carte de Rencontre promotion series, and features Robert's brilliant "LES POTES" rubberstamp, and two gay men with the tagline: RUBBER SAVES LIVES. It's our Ca-Potes (condom in French and potes/friends play on LA POSTE) card. Yes, we're targeting the male gay market in Paris with a rubber stamp/mail art image! If you're in Paris, look for them next weekend in the Marais, along the rue des Archives.

Prosperity in the Rubbish Bin

You can think of Mail Art as some sort of exchange of ideas. It’s about creating dialogues between people and expressing experiences of our senses. The purpose of mail art is to abolish distant feelings between people, to show our open minded intentions and to form an international network.

Thinking of Mail Art, artists of Rixdorf are working on the topic “Prosperity in the Rubbish Bin”, trying to encourage people to participate. Therefore they are producing postcards or artistic items, postcard-sized. “Art Made From Waste” shall become a creative examination of the item which has been thrown away. It is not just about recycling, thus regaining resources from waste - according to the African idol- but about recovering and about the reinterpretation of materials.

“Prosperity In The Rubbish Bin”

Waste – is it a question for our society concerned with issues of living standards? We are disposing, we are recycling, we are sending away all the stuff we don’t need anymore – everything we think useless. The recipient is Africa, one of the poorest continents of the world. It is the main target area for our unwanted things. African artists take this matter on; in the 1990’s they treated the issue as a form of art on its own. They named it “Art de la Récuperation”, in short “Récup”. Récuperation is not just reusing materials; furthermore it is about questioning the matter and reinterpretation. What is more, it is about decryption its ethical and cultural meaning.

More than 160 nations are living in Neukölln, a district of Berlin, capital of Germany. There is no day without problems or inharmoniousness on the streets. That is why we would like to cause creative cultural exchanges, talk about matters that move us and more.

Please do not hesitate to contact us. Send us your piece of art in postcard size to:

Galerie Colognialwaren, Richardplatz 20, 12055 Berlin, Deutschland.

All work that has been handed in will be shown in an exhibition at the gallery Colognialwaren in Dec 2007. Furthermore you can watch it in the world wide web, surf the internet on www.kulturkiez.de, the official website of artist in Rixdorf!

CONTORTIONISTS CALL

No I don't mean those people who can move themselves in some very
interesting positions but in fact my friends band – The
Contortionists. Having attended their gig on Saturday night they had
a number of left over flyers, which gave me the idea to start this
call. This is an altered image call – I will send you a copy of one
of their flyers and I want you to take aspects of the flyer and make
it into a piece of mail art.
The only rule is that you must use the bands name The Contortionists
in the piece. What else you use from it is up to you. If you want to
get a feel for the band www.contortionist-manifesto.com but it is
totally up to you.

So to sign up for this wonderful call

Size: No larger than A4
Media: Free
Deadline: October 15th 2007

Mail Art Call: Merry Christmas

THEME: “Merry Christmas”

Comment: artist Jorge Restrepo (www.jorgerestrepo.com) will make an installation in the Spanish Cultural Center, Tegucigalpa, Honduras (Central America). The mail-artworks will show the reality of the world, the extreme differences in religion, social classes, justice, poverty, income, access to water, languages…of different countries….of the world. While some people are partying and celebrating, gambling…vacationing…in December, others are suffering. Jorge Restrepo will create an environment of Christmas celebration at the exhibit rooms of the Center…using the mail-artworks. The observer to the exhibit will feel the sensation of Christmas decoration. When attendants look in detail to the decoration (mail-artworks simulating Christmas cards and messages) the reality of the world will appear…dramatically…in from of their eyes…

La Carte de Rencontre


















Well, it's not exactly mail art, but it does encourage "exchange," and a kind of add-on, pass-along concept, albeit for our Art Press here in Paris. La Carte de Rencontre has been distributed all over Paris in the baskets of the ever-multiplying Paris City Bicycles, the "Vélib'" and it's causing a bit of a stir. We've decided to create the cards using various artists and limit the "edition" to only 1000 cards. This one features my "Immaculate Perception" and to keep with the "wheel" theme, a 1957 cover of Glamour Magazine. Take a look at the site: Lalande Digital Art Press Paris. Yes, something new from The Paris Correspondence School! Always open for interesting ideas!
