another correspondent. Included in the booklet is the admonishment to return the
completed booklet to the originator. They may be issued periodically or uniquely. Examples
in the collection include works received from Guy Bleus (Belgium), Gerardo Yepiz (Mexico),
buZ blurr (USA), Lother Trott (Switzerland), and Dan Landrum (USA). The collective

by and we have in hand a great deal of printed material, and a greater knowledge of the
printing world, thanks to Bill James, our printer, and IBM, who has given me a machine
that allows us to typeset the Newsletter with near-professional skill./What is more
important is that we have tried to create a true 'newsletter/ with current information
gathered from many sources to help visual librarians throughout North America and
elsewhere as well." John Dowd (USA) mentioned in "New Periodicals," in regard to the

Editor," by AA Bronson (Canada), "Under your column on artists' books in the February
Newsletter, you note the formation of the Franklin Furnace, a new bookstore dedicated to
the distribution of book-like works by artists. You call it the 'first in a specialized type of
artists' bookstore'./In fact, The Furnace is modeled after ART METROPLE, a similar
organization in Toronto, Canada, and a member of ARLIS/NA. We were opened to the
public in October, 1974. We began by carrying only books by artists...we have now
widened our selection to multiple works by artists in popular formats (books, records,
postcards and videotapes)...Although we are totally in support of the Franklin Furnace's
efforts and hope to be working with them in the future, I wanted to clarify the fact that
there are other similar organizations in operation and there are likely to be more in the
near future." Notice of an exhibition by Ken Friedman (USA) at the Slocumb Gallery, East
Tennessee State University in Johnson city, Tennessee, and an accompanying catalog.

boondocks, but sometimes I feel that I really am doing this in complete isolation. You see,
I read lots of newspapers, lots of journals and pick up information in my travels. You the
membership, on the whole, do not seem to send me in that which is important in your own
area, so I dig it out and put it under one cover...and so we begin our fifth year, hoping not
to be bigger (I don't think my strength can endure if we get bigger) but always better,
generating controversy and comments, as well as a network of communication and
cooperation among al the members of our large art library community..." "Franklin Furnace
Archive, Inc.," by Peter Zabielskis. "We are a public archive for artists'' books, available as
a scholarly research center, or just for casual browsing. in keeping with the spirit in which
these works were originally produced (i.e. an inexpensive, readily available medium), we
are inclusive rather than exclusive. We are not concerned with books that are 'salable' or
popular, but with preserving examples of all works produced by artists. for this reason, the
greater part of our collection consists of works simply unavailable and unknown through
commercial outlets except for Printed Matter, Inc., the only bookstore dealing exclusively
with book-like works by artists still in print..." Notice of works by Vincent Trasov (aka Mr.
Peanut, Canada), Dick Higgins (USA) and Alison Knowles (USA) in "Artists' Books."

"Impressions/Expressions," contains a letter from Jonathan Held (aka John Held, Jr., USA),
"Programming Consultant, Mid-York Library System, Utica, New York." "I am interested in
receiving information and material on the subject of correspondence art, with particular
attention placed on the use of rubber stamps (both visual and textual). Stamp Art has
become a growing movement in Europe and the United States with exhibitions devoted to
the medium and books published documenting the activities of various artists." First
appearance of "Art Spoken Here," a trademark not only of this publication, but of the
editor's forthcoming "Umbrella." The editor voices her concerns for the future of her
continuing in the present periodical in "From the Editor." "...the printing budget had been
cut, not only for the newsletter, but it seems to me for other printing which is essential for
the nuts and bolts of this society. the argument on the part of some Board members was
that most people do not read this newsletter anymore since it is too big. If that is the case,
then perhaps the hours of preparation and the charge to document the activities of this
society are really for naught. I need your feedback, because this is crucial...If you don't like
the back of the newsletter, then say so, but that is the reason a great many non-librarians
red this newsletter...The future of this publication depends upon you. To be sure, I can
eliminate the obituaries, since 'everyone reads it in the newspapers.' But there are more
essential principles here, or frankly, you will get what you want-and that is a handsome 24-
page ARLIS/NA News Sheet-and another Editor will be at the helm."

September 19-21, 1986, the Southwest USA Decentralized Worldwide Mailart congress was

you know what they are saying. As they stand there, swaying, they are saying YOUR LIFE

developed who takes these geographic and psychic disturbances as the context from which
much of their work springs. We are speaking here of the concept of the networker and the
network./the networker is someone who respects no borders, brooks no artificial barriers in
his or her quest to celebrate the most basic of human acts: communication. connected with
others across the country and around the globe, networkers generate dialogues of many
kinds, from play to collaboration to propagandizing. It's a defiant and subversive culture
constantly slipping its message through the postal system n the form of xeroxes,
underground zines, audio cassettes, videotapes, and computer discs. More recently, the
fax, modem, and computer bulletin board have been added to the networker's repertoire.
Indeed, all the duplicative technologies and any other available means of transmitting
information are potential tools for the networker..." Edited by Jan Zita Grover.

Review," edited by Simon Ford (England). "Smile is everybody's magazine because
anybody can produce it! All you have to do is call your magazine 'SMILE.' the English writer
Stewart home proposed the SMILE concept in 1984 after plagiarizing and refining ideas
that had been developed by the Neoist conspiracy in the late '70s and then reapplying
them to the field of publishing. the concept found fertile ground as it weaved its way
through the international network of neoists, cultural refuseniks, correspondence artists,
xerox zinesters, and others in underground networks. this catalog documents
approximately 11 'SMILE's produced throughout Europe,, North America, and Australia
during the years 1984-1988. Editor Simon Ford also provides succinct overviews of a string
of related concepts that intersect with the 'SMILE' project: Neoism, Multiple Names,
Plagiarism, and the Art Strike..."

Nishinomiya, Japan. 1977-2001.
Newsletter published by AU art organization in Nishinomiya, Japan, under the direction of
Shozo Shimamoto, a former member of the Gutai art movement. Gutai was one of the pre-
eminent post-war avant-garde art movements in Japan, formed in the mid-1950s, well-
known for incorporating performance aspects into the physical artwork (i.e., running
through a series of paper screens, or in the case of Shimamoto, hurling bottles with oil
pigments at a canvas, the resulting canvas bearing the trace of the performance).
Shimamoto can be seen in the bottom photograph on page 1 of this issue, far right.
Shimamoto was introduced to Mail Art by Byron Black, from Ft. Worth, Texas, and
Vancouver, Canada, where he was a resident at Western Front. Black went to Japan to
teach English and made the acquaintance of Shimamoto and Ryosuke Cohen (see Brain
Cell), who he introduced to Mail Art. Over the years, Mail Art became a growing concern of
the organization, composed of artists throughout Japan.

Artstrike, as formulated by the various groups involved were to increase the presance (sic)
of critical political attitudes in certain sections of the political and art communities, make
the cynical positions of certain careerist hacks less tenable, and to demoralize any naive
'Aritists' who might otherwise go their entire lives without having the content of their
Religious/Ruling Class attitudes called into question."

Brain Cell. Ryosuke Cohen, "Editor." Osaka, Japan. 1985-2001.
(April 8, 1985). Gocco print. 11"x8 1/2". (1 page). One of the outstanding and longest
lasting projects in the Mail Art network, Ryosuke Cohen began using a common Japanese
printing method, Gocco printing, to gather images from an international array of artists.
Gocco printing is used in Japanese households to make handmade greeting cards and other
family announcements. It has the appearance of color photocopy, but the colors, which are
produced by applying pigment through a screen in the manner of silk-screen printing
(vertically, rather than a horizontal swip), produce a subtle graduation, rarely seen in
Western art technique printing techniques. Previous to creating the numbered units in the
"Brain Cell" series, Cohen used the gocco printing method on postcards (often with the
word "Cell" incorporated in the design), and then began producing sheets with images,
usually of his own creation. It was but one step to the formal "Brain Cell" series, when
instead of using his own imagery, Cohen began collaging the graphic work of others. In
addition to the gocco printed sheet of graphic images, a second black and white photocopy
sheet is added, listing the names and addresses of contributors. This listing of contributors,
not only stimulated unprecedented interaction between correspondents, but produced the
finest road map to Mail Art networking activity over a fifteen year period. This pre-"Brain
Cell" sheet traces Cohen's path to this extraordinary series of work.
(May 9, 1985). Gocco printing. 11"x8 1/2". (1 page). Another gocco printed sheet
prefiguring the formal "Brain Cell" series. The imagery is mainly found, with the exception
of the graphic taken from the work of Robert Rockola (USA).
(July 25, 1985). Gocco Printing. 11"x8 1/2". (1 page). Found images, stickers and an
image from Guy Bleus (Belgium) are composed on this sheet, prefiguring the formal "Brain
Cell" series. The back of the envelope in which the work is sent is printed with the following
request. "Dear Friend: It is original pleasure of mail art network which we make use of
another persons seal or stamp at will. Ourselves may be likened to one of the Brain Cell, it
is crowed without number and comes into superb object. At present art faculty of only
genius is no more necessity. I intend to collect seal or stamp of everybody into one sheet
and send back to each. Please send your seal or stamp to me."
No. 2 ([September 18, 1985]). Gocco Printing and Photocopy. 11 1/2"x16 1/2". (2
pages). The gocco printed sheet of images is now accompanied by a second black and
white photocopy sheet of paper listing the artists whose work is collaged on the "Brain Cell"

get her but still arrived!!!!!) which he wrote on the 5th day of the bombardments in
Yugoslavia on Sunday 28th March 1999. He asks me to copy and pass on the letter
because it also contains a OPEN LETTER in it. You are encouraged to copy this magazine
that I made for him. The magazine itself contains information that originates from
Yugoslavia. Also e-mail messages I received from Andrej Tisma in Novi Sad are included.
We hear a lot about the war in Yugoslavia from our own media. It only felt right to spread
these informations from our mail art friend(s) inside Yugoslavia to all of you to hear what
they have to say."

"Collaboration By." Keiichi Nakamura, Editor. Tokyo, Japan. 1996-2001.
Series of collaborative visual poetry booklets. Japanese Mail Artist Keiichi Nakamura sends
out pages of graphics to fellow Mail Artists, asking them to "add to and return". Upon
return receipt, the pages are photocopied and made into booklets. Numbering system is
somewhat suspect, as "Vol. 1" is used throughout the series. Titles are given each booklet,
but together they form an outstanding series of collaborative works. I have given the series
the name, "Collaboration By," as this phrase appears on many of the booklets. Three
booklets appear to have been produced before the series began, but have been included
because of their similarity to the series, and to give a historic perspective to Nakamura's
project.

Commonpress. Pawel Petasz, Founder and Coordinator; Gerald Jupitter-Larsen,
Coordinator. Elblag, Poland. 1978-1990.
The idea of Commonpress, conceived by Pawel Petasz (Poland) in 1977, paved the way for
new strategies in publishing and international artistic cooperative practice, remaining a
hallmark of Mail Art. Petasz conceived of a publication with a revolving editorship, assigning
issue numbers to those wishing to publish under the banner of Commonpress. All
contributors were to become future editors, but this was shortly modified. Petasz passed on
the role of Coordinator to Gerald Jupitter-Larsen, when it became difficult to receive mail in
Poland.

No. 1 (March 25, 1994). Photocopy. 8 1/4"x5 3/4". (4 pages). "Computers nowadays are
used a lot in mail-art, but for most current mail-artists who use the computer, it is limited
to 'local' work. The printing of texts, graphics etc...., and also the making of computerized
address-lists, producing catalogues and art-cards with desktop publishing. Not that many
use the computer for electronic communication."
No. 2 (April 24, 1994). Photocopy. 8 1/4"x5 3/4". (4 pages). "The first article on
'electronic mail-art' caused some various reactions. That is why I started with this follow-up
article on the same subject. the text is accessible on my own BBS, but also I spread this
printed version because the discussion about electronic mail is important for all mail-
artists."
No. 3 (May 26, 1994). Photocopy. 8 1/4"x5 3/4". (4 pages). "Again I feel in the middle.
Computers are included in my daily life, but for communication I have learned that the
computer isn't always the best tool. It just depends on what you want to send, what your
goal is, what the message I(s) that you want to send."
No. 4 (June 27, 1994). Photocopy. 8 1/4"x5 3/4". (4 pages). "Mail-art has brought
many people together. the electronic mail-art will even make the group of networkers
larger. The reason is simple. Spreading of electronic mail is expensive but has the
advantage that it works even faster then xerox-machines."
No. 5 (October 18, 1994). Photocopy. 8 1/4"x5 3/4". (4 pages). "This is the fifth article
on electronic mail-art. In 1995 the Telenetlink year will take place. I will try to take part in
this year and at the same time try to inform others by 'snail-mail' (none-computer users)
about this project."
No. 6 (December 19, 1994). Photocopy. 8 1/4"x5 3/4". (4 pages). "When will there be
the first E-mail-art show, where there is a host-computer with full-size screen where all
participants can log-in and participate in a joined drawing they make. The FAX-projects are
an example of how the location of the artist isn't important anymore. He an produce art at
his home while it occurs somewhere else too."
No. 7 (December 30, 1994). Photocopy. 8 1/4"x5 3/4". (4 pages). "I started to make a
list of all the mail-artists I know that also have an E-mail address and I realize that there
are only a few I know. I am not that active with E-mail yet, but what I remember from the
BBS-world (I started with that in 1986 or so) is that there is a real kind of anarchy in that
world. no judgment on the quality of what is being sent at all."
No. 8 (January 28, 1995). Photocopy. 8 1/4"x5 3/4". (4 pages). "When your E-mail
address is out there you can get mail from anybody who wants to react just to your 'name.'
Also being mentioned in one of the E-mail magazines means that your address gets around
http://research.moma.org/mailart/ www.merzmail.net 105
and that people start to send you invitations. Good and bad ones I must say. There isn't
that much difference compared to the 'snail-mail' as mail-art has been named now."
No. 9 (April 11, 1995). Photocopy. 8 1/4"x5 3/4". (4 pages). "I made a two special arti-
stamps so far that have to do with E-mail. One says: "I couldn't have sent this by E-mail"
to emphasize that the snail-mail is a completely different (analog) communication form."
No. 10 (April 19, 1995). Photocopy. 8 1/4"x5 3/4". (4 pages). "I know of mail-artists
that are starting their own homepages. I myself also have a very small homepage with only
a few lines, but the fact is that you don't mail the homepage to your (mail-) friends. You
are waiting till they come and access your host (via Internet), and then they can just see
what you made in a digital form. I miss the interaction a bit on this front."
No. 11 (May 17, 1995). Photocopy. 8 1/4"x5 3/4". (4 pages). "This article I would also
like to discuss the e-zines as they n(o)w appeared in he network. The e-zines I know all
consist of a text file that contains information the editor has received or that the editor has
typed himself. They are produced on computers but are distributed like the traditional zines
with one central point."

benefits of doing GM is that I was finally able to let go of existing in the material world.

to the tremendous volume of information out there today...Each networker's interpretation
of the mail art world is different, depending on their involvement. Some people have a
handle on the 'big picture', other's sphere of interaction is close and personal. One can't
assume the mail artist has any grasp on mail art history or even a full picture of what is
considered a 'Networker'. It is happening, being created, right now. There are no complete
source references on it, few mail art historians or histories to peruse. You just need to do it
to discover its past. Mail Art is not exactly covered in Art History courses; though it has

Art/Artist postage Stamps," by Jon Held, Jr. (USA). "Over a twenty-five year period an
alternate art system has developed connecting an international group of artists via the
postal system. A mail artist is one who relates on a fairly consistent basis with this network
of artists. It is a network without central leadership, without formal membership, but a
network nevertheless, which is said to encompass several thousand participants from over
thirty countries. The iconography of mail art is drawn from this pool of global artistic
interaction. Mail art is not the production of objets which are sent through the mail, but the
http://research.moma.org/mailart/ www.merzmail.net 140
at of participation, and the 'correspondances' which occur through involvement with the
network...While the creation of precious objects has not been of primary importance, visual
statements have been made along the way. And nowhere in mail art have those
statements been made to better effect than within the genre of artist postage stamps. In
the world of philately, they are often referred to as 'cinderellas,' stamps which are not
intended for legal postage. They can be either an offset, xerox, rubberstamp or drawing. It
is an aspect of mail art which instantaneously aligns itself with the postal medium. A
symbol, if you will, of the mail art experience..." contributions by Gene Laughter (USA), E.

the effort, a printing press if you happen to have an extra one gathering dust in your
kitchen...that is all./There ain't no editor at LEVEL MAGAZINE headquarters in Indianapolis.

seen, sent or otherwise, and his notions of the world that he caused to flow between
islands of friends, acquaintances and strangers." Includes articles, interviews and

Interview with Michael Leigh (England)." Interview with the founder of A-1 Waste Paper Co.
Ltd., London, England. "Well, it was soon after I had chanced upon the mail art network in
1980 at the Artlink International exhibition at the Greenwich Theatre gallery in London that
I decided I too could have a weird and wonderful nom de plume that many of my fellow
mail artists had contrived for themselves."
(May 1995). Photocopy. 8 1/4"x6". 12 pages. "The Mail-Interview with Klaus Groh."
Interview with the German Dadaist and Mail Artist. "I discovered the network idea of
Correspondence-Art in 1967 in San Francisco (USA) when I was looking for material for my
doctoral thesis at Dada-Post-Dada- and human art activities. Art, distributed by the normal
Postal-System really was fascinating for me. I suddenly was deep involved with that great
idea."

with Arto Posto." Interview with the Mail Artist from Atlanta, Georgia. "Can't tell exactly
when I started mailing art. It was with an artist friend who had moved to California, Susan
Petelik, and she always added art to her envelopes, letters, etc., tucked art inside. She
inspired me to do the same, and I started sending back to her in like manner. That was
during the late 1960s. I wasn't actually aware of the international mail art movement as
such until about eight to ten years ago."

with Rod Summers (VEC)." Interview with the English/Dutch Mail Artist, the originator of
the VEC Audio Exchange. The editor introduces the text by stating, "In this mail-interview
with Rod Summers I used lots of different communication-methods, and also Rod used as
many as possible methods. A nice coincidence was that besides the E-mail, snail-mail, FAX
and exchanging diskettes, we also could use the help of John Held Jr. and Bill Gaglione for
the transport of one answer from Maastricht to Tilburg." Summers' responds to the
question of his starting in Mail Art, "I began involvement in the mail-art movement in
either late 1973 or early 1974, it's quite difficult to be more precise as I destroyed my
mail-art archive as part of a performance in De Appel in Amsterdam in 1977."

response to your query, I began my network mail art activity in 1978, encourage by Bern
Porter...When Bern Porter encouraged me to send an original postcard off to a mail art

for community, and was an appreciator of intimate mailed communication."

Fluxus artist Ken Friedman. So my involvement began in April 1973, but at the time I didn't
know that this major exhibition was the precedent for all mail art shows that followed. My

(Netherlands)." Interview with the Mail Art publisher and exhibition organizer from

Bart Boumans, who at the time was very active in the mail art circuit. He gave me a list of
addresses in japan: I was doing some 'research' on Japanese calligraphy, and I needed the
addresses for information. Among those who replied were people like Shozo Shimamoto
and Ryosuke Cohen and voila; there it all began..."

'89 when I first met (late?) Tihomir Govoskovich, Croat from Vojvodina (ex-Yugoslavia).
We met each other casually, via one magazine for meeting new loves. We've never become
more than friends, but really very good friends. As he knew I draw (in that time, I used ink
and pencils in my art and made drawings of various shells, which has been my favorite
motive), he gave me good advice (I didn't think I'm so good!) and -an invitation for a mail
art action WEST-EAST in Seattle at CW-Post-AFGN Gallery. I sent materials and waited for

Interview with Ashley Parker Owens (USA)." Interview with the editor of "Global Mail." "In
1981, I somehow received a mail art chain letter. I believe the source was through an art

network as a well defined body, does not exist. On the other hand, that an artist who
comes in close contact with the links of the Netland, gets absorbed by the spongy mail-art

No. 2 (1997). Color and B&W Photocopy. 8 1/4"x5 3/4". (22 pages). "The Fake Mail
Interview with K. Frank Jensen (DK), interviewed by Asta Erte." Spoof of "The Mail Art
Interview" project of Ruud Janssen (Holland). "AE: The very last question. Why do you call
this a fake interview? KFJ: There is a mail artist, Ruud Janssen, who runs a series of
interviews with mail artists. He told me that he himself either selected the people he
wanted to interview, or made interviews, when a sufficient number of people asked for an
interview with a particular mail artist. Most of his interviews are with the mail art
establishment or with people, who are more interested in the communicatory and political
aspects rather than in the art aspect of mail art...This is a fake interview, because it is
within RJ's concept but he didn't make it."

material from visual artists and poets on matters political, social and economic.
Submissions are in the form of one or two standard 3"x5" index cards. The index card is
our building block, our metaphor and our assurance that submissions will be clear and
concise./ MC believes in politics as a day-to-day phenomenon that begins with simple
exchanges of information and support and which holds in common a ground of concern that
all can agree on. We are interested in a local, humanistic, thoughtful criticism which,
though it aspires to beauty and harmony, should begin on the ground where experience
crosses experience. We are not interested in abstractions, labels, or ideological
propaganda/ Ultimately, we want MC to serve as a clearing house and retrieval system for
both old and new ideas and hope that in time, readers and contributors will begin talking to
each other. MC welcomes comments and inquiries from general readers as well as artists,
for while MC is both visual and verbal, it is not exclusively art or literature. It is NEWS and
so belongs in a public space as public work. (David Cole & Paul Zelevansky)." contributions

started this archive in 1983 and up to now about 4000 magazines / 1100 different titles are
stocked in this archive. (They) are all magazines: -with a limited edition (max. 500) -
without a real commercial purpose -who are not distributed by a big company -that deal
with subculture or counter culture or the margin of official culture. Those mags can be:
independent art(ist) mags, underground papers, punkzines, little graphic or satirical mags,
specialized musicpapers, cassette gazettes, alternative poetry-zines, curiosa, free press,
comix zines, various fanzines etc. At the beginning of '87 we started Megazine Bulletin, a
supplement to the media-newsletter, and what's called a fanzine's fanzine. as you can see
it's a little magazine, which describes other zines, mags, newsletters, bulletins and so on.
the purpose of Megazine Bulletin was and is to promote the small press and to create a
service which is still unique in the Dutch speaking countries (Flanders and Holland)."

knew a little bit about it: I'd read THE RUBBER STAMP ALBUM and had been ordering

gotten ahold of issues of VILE, UMBRELLA and BIKINI GIRL MAGAZINE. I was actually a
little nervous about sending MSLITM to mail artists. It seemed rather presumptuous to
send out a reviewzine since there was already UMBRELLA (which covered more things than
I could ever hope to). But send it out I did." Reviews of "Laughing Postman," "Duplex

encouraged meetings beyond the postal encounter; helped to distribute artistic, social, and
political information across borders; stimulated cross-cultural performances; created video
and audio projects; and helped examine the aesthetics of communication across
international borders...And there lay the weakness of the Mail Art Marathon. Devoid of

letter to communicate that I have recently decided to interrupt till indefinite times all my
activities concerning Mail Art and networking./ This decision comes after something like
eight years of active participation inside the International Mail Art Network, in which -since
August '89- I also made 84 consequential issues of my monthly networking newsletter 'Net
Informer'. This newsletter has now to be considered definitely finished./ I want to clarify
that my decision to leave mail Art is not to be seen as a polemic or caused by disillusions
or lost expectations of any kind. I have simply decided to dedicate a larger attention to
other activities of my interest, and to start some other news./ I think my activity in Mail Art
has been one of the most interesting, stimulating, precious and important in my all life. I
http://research.moma.org/mailart/ www.merzmail.net 224
must thank all of you for this...Parts of my mail art archive will be donated to other
international mail art archives in the world."

in xerox zines stacked up in alternative bookstores and record stores, on record and
cassette covers and a thousand other places where this tide of copy culture infiltrated the
old cultural order...the articles that follow illustrate how this new technology was able to
provide an economical means by which cultural refuseniks could transmit information
nationally and internationally and, more importantly, play a vital role in fostering and
linking together the many diverse communities that make up an oppositional culture."

project to the net on 'Liberty, diversity and pluralism" in art. This project got the support of
the academy of Fine Arts and the museum of Modern art (sic) in Chile who organized also
the exhibition of the project in the University of Santiago. The project was backed by the
whole of the mail art network (see enclosed list of participants) and by many refugees
abroad...As a result of this controversial mail art show Humbeto Nilo, the director of the
academy of the university, and 2 of his colleagues in the museum have been sacked by the
authorities. Strangely enough this happens on a moment that the regime is asking
clemency for the former dictator and butcher Pinochet in the name of 'national
reconciliation.'" List of participants in the Chilean Mail Art exhibition, "Libertad Diversidad

that there is a large mail art community in Serbia and that many ties exist between
networkers all over the globe. I refuse to make a separation or division. not only the people
in Kosovo need our solidarity, also those in Serbia, Montenegro and all other countries in
the region. People who are applauding the bombings of Yugoslavian cities make me sick!
They would talk rather differently if the towns where they lived were the target of airstrikes
on a daily base. This lack of perspective is amazing to me. So I back the anti war
movement in mail art and in the streets of many countries. Listing of Mail Art project
opportunities. Contributors to the editor's "Snake" project.

INTERVIEW project started in 1994 where I decided that I wanted to do some research
about what the other mail-artists think it is all about. Because some mail-artists publish
themselves a lot and others don't I took the initiative myself to start with interviewing
people." "For the statistics some information: I invited 52 mail-artists so far and 39 reacted

TAM-950102 (December 1995). Photocopy. 11 3/4"x8 1/4". (3 pages). "Because the
communication-forms used in mail-art are not only the traditional envelope, I decided to
experiment also during this )long-time) project with several different forms. Some
examples: The mail-interview with Klaus Groh was for a large part done by FAX. The mail-
interview with Michael Leigh (A1) was mostly done by the traditional mail. The interview
with Arto Posto was almost completely done by E-mail on the Internet (although we also
exchanged the printed version besides that). The interview with Michael Lumb was mostly
done by exchanging the diskette." Sixteen mail-interview published to date.

order form with the latest details. Some interview-booklets aren't available anymore, so
you can only order the complete text-print of the interview. Only for subscribers to future
issues (or issues that are about to come out) I make the extended version. The other
(text)booklets are made to send out into the network (sometimes randomly or to mail-
friends of the interviewed person). So if you want all the interviews; the collection grows
quickly, and you have to realize that this project is a costly one." "So far 20 interviews are
finished and 15 interviews are published."

Vol. 3, No. 7 (Autumn 1974). Qwik Print. 11"x8 1/2". 17 pages. "Most of the
correspondence rookies who have been reading the Breeder for a year or two probably
don't realize that Mr. Friedman (director of Fluxus West and international conceptualist)
was the founder of the NYCS Weekly Breeder almost 3 years ago. Or that Stu Horn of the
Northwest Mounted Valise was editor for three months before asking the Bay Area
Daddaists to take over in May of 1972./ Yes, the Weekly Breeder has gone through many
changes in those years and I must admit this current issue has nothing to do visually or
editorially with what Ken Friedman's Breeders were about, or Stu Horn's. But I believe that
Volume three represents the realization of the modern dadazine and was influential in
inspiring the current 'zine scene' (to quote Marcel)." Contributions by Anna Banana (USA),
Daddaland (USA), and the editor.
Vol. 3, No. 1-7 (1972-1981). Qwik Print. 11"x8 1/2". (100 pages). "THE WEEKLY
BREEDER was originally published in 1971 by Ken Friedman as a xeroxed edition of images
and information pertaining to Mail Art, and/or Fluxus West, etc./ In 1972 Ken asked Stu
Horn to edit the Breeder and Stu's Breeder, naturally showed his Northwest Mounted Valise
influence. The Breeder at this point was making use more and more of collage./ Later that
year, before Stu left for Europe, he asked myself to edit the Weekly Breeder which I did
(along with Bill Gaglione) until Fall 1974 when The Very Last Weekly Breeder was
published. Volume III consists of seven issues including Vol. IV, No. 1. It was during this
period that The Weekly Breeder served as a model for the numerous other 'dadazines' that
soon blossomed around the country, purveying a style of images as uniquely Bay Area as
FILE was Canadian./ At least 2 issues of the Breeder were published in the late seventies
by Buster Cleveland and Steve Caravello (of Mendodada fame). Steve also edited Vol. IV,
No. 1, the Re-election issue./ In looking over these pages one should keep in mind that
they predate today's 'punk' graphics by almost 10 years. and that collage, itself owes its
existence to the early dadaists, who in the 1920's broke through the formal design and
composition standards of their day."

"A Brief History of the NYCS Weekly Breeder: (and a Mini-Editorial)," by Tim Mancusi. "Last
January, after almost a decade of non-collaboration, my brother (Leodada Vinci) and I
decided to visit William Gaglione and his wife, Darlene Domel, at their rubberstamp
shop/gallery down in San Francisco. After reminiscing old times over dinner, I asked Bill if
he wanted to put out a 20th anniversary issue this May. The commemorative issue you
http://research.moma.org/mailart/ www.merzmail.net 240
now hold in you hands is a result of that enthusiasm. Even though we've all gotten older
and some of us have kids, I wanted this issue to help contrast the move conservative
doldrums the past 12 years have brought about. The Weekly Breeder, Tao more than ever,
should always be cutting-edge regardless of who edits it." Contributions by American

"Publishers/mail-artists need to distinguish between the activity of mail-art and the activity
of publishing. The two an co-exist without being the same. Let me give an example.
Recently I published a little book which I mailed to mail-artists. I excluded any indication of
a price for the book. My intent being to participate as a mail-artist with other mail-artists.
They had not expected or requested either the book or the participation. The freedom to in
return participate was their choice, and the manner in which they chose to participate was
their choice. having no expectations on either my part or theirs let the value remain on the
activity."
