NEW MAIL ART PROJECT: AFTER ANN LET US REBEL REBEL
The deadline for The book of ANN (Friour project 12) is 31 December 2011.
The past year was great on a MAIL ART and KITTY level, so THANX to all who contributed and exchanged art and ideas.
I now present the successor for 2012 and already email my season greetings to YOU ALL.
FRIOUR project 13 is on rebellion, contestation, protest in all its meanings: artistic, political, social, cultural, historical and present ones.
I dedicate this 2012 project to all mail artists who have told me they like my art but PLEASE Guido stay away from politics! They are forgetting that all the great art movements of the modernist past (Dada, Surrealism, Cobra, Situationism) were involved in attempts to change society. So REBEL REBEL aka the essence of art expressions by artists living in society, rooted in all the social and cultural contradictions of the world. Because after all it is not only Wall street we need to occupy because the public domain is our space. Reclaim the streets indeed!!
POWER TO THE PEOPLE, TO THE ANIMALS, TO THE TREES AND TO THE ASTONISHING STONES OF OUR UNIVERSE (it is OUR universe: not belonging to banks, corporations, dictators, the state, the police or other self proclaimed authorities: we are the world, the world are we, so REBEL REBEL till you drop, don’t shop, burn all billboards down, spit on your local flag and embrace humanity as a whole, for XXX sake, REBEL REBEL till the end of time, REBEL against death and REBEL against the way we live or against those who impose us how to live.
Take responsibilty of your own life and destinity, this means also taking responsibility of our planet and existence in our own hands. Don’t depend of power, create your own power, or refute power altogether!
