Graham Greene 110
Invitation to participation in mail-art project
We would like to dedicate the project "SPY" to the personality and creative work of a famous British writer, who made a significant contribution to the world literature; whose books inspired 42 screen versions; whose heritage includes 26 novels, 4 travel books, a book of poems, 4 autobiographies, 8 plays, 6 collections of short stories, 4 children’s books. This writer is Graham Greene. 2 of October 2014 is his 110th birthday anniversary.
Thus within this project we propose to develop in your artworks the theme of espionage – real and fictional, reflected in mass media, spy fiction, films and TV series. Famous personages, real secret agents, famous spy plot lines, scandals, breaking news, connected with this theme, can also be the source of inspiration.
We hope this theme to be thought-provoking and interesting.
