Garbage 2015
Call for artists.
deadline: September 21, 2015.

1st Award 100 Eur 2nd Award 50 Eur 3rd Award 50Eur All international visual artists are & none are welcome to participate in the ” 2015 Mail Art - Garbage”. The exhibition is organized by Komunala d.o.o., Nova Gorica, Slovenia and a non- profit association Humanist association of Goriška region . Komunala d.o.o. is a company that deals also with garbage for the Council of Nova Gorica. Today we swim in garbage. The world we live in is over populated, over polluted, over everything. How we deal with garbage needs a new approach, a new way of dealing with this overgrowing problem. Recycling is one of the possibilities. But how we view garbage, how we use it, re- use it and what is our personal relationship towards it, is a question to be asked. And this is what we are asking ourselves in this project. How to redefine our relationship towards garbage and how to popularize the idea of the thought needed to move our perception. The works will be exhibited in an exhibition space at the Goriska regional museum on a Kromberk Castle, on- line and an on- line catalog will be made for this purpose.

I was just wondering if my piece is a graphic design piece made on the computer, do I still need to mail my work through the postal system? I'm from the U.S. and mailing the work all the way to Slovenia would be quite pricey. Is there anyway to just email the works over? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

The essence of mail-art is sending it though the postal system. Not sure if they accept e-mailed works. You would have to ask them.

This "Garbage" mail art show in Slovenia was supposed to select winners of the prizes by Dec. 2015, yet I can't locate the winning postcards anywhere online. Could someone please post a link to this information?
Contrast this to the "Turquoise" mail art show, which is easily accessible.
