(shown inside and outside)

This is an example of the one-of-a-kind folders I am assembling from the submissions to ARTISTAMP 2008. They will be mailed to some or all of the contributors, if I can actually make more than 60 of them. Because of the amazing variety of artistamps contributed, all the collections will be different.

For Mailart Call And For Mailartists

On my site, there is a page (http://denis.charmot.free.fr/projets.htm ) on which I puts all the projects of mail art that one sending to me or that I find (your project is there). Its projects are in the source language. As much of mail artists wishing to take part in some of these projects did not understand them, I translated the page into French (small flag) . In order to diffuse these projects with the greatest number; in collaboration with Greg Bird (the USA) for English, Tiziana BARACCHI for the Italian, Ivan Zemtsov in Russian, Rene Z Garza for Spanish and BACIU OANA RALUCA in Rumanian; we created mirrors pages in the various languages (click on the small flags to see the different page).

Blue String Drawing

Mail Art Project: Blue String Drawing #1212

There will be three sets of 10 small envelopes. Each set of 10 is the same. So we will have the same thing three times. Each set of ten will be bound by a blue string, forming a single unit.

They will be MAILED: three packages going to three different places at the same time.
The people who receive the packages only have to take a picture of the Blue String Drawing in some particular location that is easily accessible to them. These will be Reference Points, which we will plot on a map. When they have taken the picture like they are supposed to do, then they email the picture to us and MAIL the package to the next person who is going to receive it. Once we have the picture we give them the address to where they are supposed to send the package next. Once the package arrives there the process is repeated until finally...

Each package will in the end arrive and be photographed at each of the Cleopatra's Needles (Paris, London and New York City) on Dec 12, 2012 at 3:35 pm.
We will document this journey at each stage.

We are looking for people all over the world who will receive the packages, photograph them, and forward them to the next person. The express interest and learn more please reply to:

Bizarre Cities tom VII: Spring 2009

Dear friends and mail artists,

I like to announce the new theme for next year's edition of Bizarre Cities: This time I like to explore the theme of "surveillance". All the global conspiracy theorists, CCTV collectors, state security lovers and street art activists among you are cordially invited to contribute.
The rules are the same as always: please submit 25 copies of a visual artwork in the format A4 (21x29,7cm or 8,27"x11,69" or something close to this). Please try to remain creative and avoid the "I want to be in" b/w photocopy, please. Bizarre Cities always contains a good number of "traditional" art techniques, like etchings, woodcuts or drawings. Texts are most welcome and could be submitted electronically.
For this theme I could also imagine receiving some short videos which would be burned on a CD and published together with the magazine.
I would suggest that your contribution should arrive not later than 31 December 2008.
As usual the copyleft and right remains with the authors and each contributor receives a copy of the assembling.
In case you are interested, please contact me. This makes it easier for resource planning and will avoid surprises at the censorship offices.
Regards, Mailworks@Bruxelles
