    Freedom is a great thing. In our society you can think, say, organize your personal life the way you want without being afraid of punishment. Because that freedom has become normal, you do not really think about it anymore. Yet it is something precious. You will notice that soon when you lose it. Once a year we celebrate Liberation Day in the Netherlands.

    What is freedom for you? And why is it important? Do you have ideas, do you want to share that, send it to us.

  • description

    In our municipality of Alphen-Chaam still exists the remains of an old and the only Commandery in the Netherlands of the Knights Templars, a monks order dating back to the Middle Ages; they were crusaders. The inhabitants of our region were liable to a monastery of yet another monks order, 50 kilometers away. The monks had a predominant role in life in the past times. They managed the lands, they built the monasteries, the churches and the hospitals, protected the pilgrims, farmers and the citizens. They made the rules, wrote the books. They preceded in the rituals of spiritual life and were the guards of civilization and morality. Throughout the world and in all religions and civilizations are people like our monks. Both men and women. Even in each human being lurks a monk, a moralist, a dedicated person and with the desire to live in peace and regularity, occasionally in the seclusion of the surrounding world. There is also being mocked with this misunderstood eccentrics. For example, in the works of Hieronymus Bosch many a monk and saint are represented, for good and for evil. Antony in temptation, John as a scholar and writer, a flying monk, a drunken monk, etc. Not every monk was a good guy, not every bad guy was a monk.

  • description

    Fellow artists, be aware that although this website deals with sensitive subjects that should concern all of us... please be alerted that it may contain language and imagery not suited for all humans.

    On previous curated mailart and artbymail open calls we've dealt with similar content... at "desAMORes" (www.desamores.yzonk.com) we've worked around the concept of unmatchable loves and at "QUEIXA-TE" (www.queixate.yzonk.com) I've asked artists to complain about whatever subject they weren't pleased with. At the present open call, entitled "Hate Mail? for ya Fat F#uck", I'm getting in touch with artists and asking them to give their support to fellow artists that continually see their artwork being censored again and again. These censored artists are exposing severe situations of our present lifetime, touching subjects considered triggers that are listed on international trigger lists, but they are indeed helping us out by means of expressing themselves through art that creates awareness about these matters. "Ignoring it won't make it go away" is the concept above all.

    I'm just fed up that remarkable artwork is being censored because of its theme or, even worst, because it simply presents nudity.

    It is not uncommon for us to miss flagging content that might be identified as triggering. Perhaps the trigger seems suitably mild to you and you believed it didn’t need to be flagged or it simply seems silly. Or maybe you are just dealing with a snowflake.

    Snowflake is a term for someone that thinks they are unique and special but really are not. It gained popularity after the movie "Fight Club" from the quote "You are not special. You're not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You're the same decaying organic matter as everything else." Began being used extensively as a putdown for someone, usually on the political left, who are easily offended or felt they needed a "safe space" away from the harsh realities of the world, but now has morphed into a general putdown for anyone that complains about any subject.

    Nowadays there are so many people being triggered by somewhat reason that it became too common to have artists creations being reported and consequently censored on networks such as Instagram and Facebook. It seems that we regressed to past times when clothes had been ordered to be painted and sculpted over artwork, but now through the use of pixels and black bars. I do hope that through this open call, we do start to freely start to talk about these subjects/problems and stop being a prude.

    I'm not promoting illegal actions nor soliciting illegal content but ignoring it won't make it go away.

    It was already proved that talking about these subjects do trigger some folks since this open call was targeted of censorship by fellow artists.

    So, to confront this matter, all submitted artwork should deal with the offensiveness of itself, or nor, in some sort of way or approach/discuss/deal with these issues. Work with the common trigger warnings and freely express yourself through art.

    Only similar content, to the following list, will be considered valid and used on the exhibitions: abuse (physical, mental, emotional, verbal, sexual); animal cruelty or animal death; blood; child abuse / pedophilia / incest; classism; death or dying; depiction of pornography (including child pornography); eating disorders, body hatred, and fatphobia; excessive or gratuitous violence; homophobia and heterosexism; incest (including any and all elements of romantic or sexual relationships between family, tonal in theme, though, or activity); Islamophobia; kidnapping and abduction (forceful deprivation of / disregard for personal autonomy); mental illness and ableism; miscarriages / abortion; needles; pornographic content; pregnancy / childbirth; racism and racial slurs; rape and sexual assault; self-harm, and self-injurious behavior (self-harm, eating disorders, etc.); sexism and misogyny; sexual assault; suicide; transphobia and transmisogyny; violence; …

    Our center is named after Antonio Fraguas, a prominent figure of Galician culture and who are dedicated AS LETRAS GALEGAS 2019. Therefore, we decided to open a window to the world with this call for mail art (the first one we do) with the aim of facilitating artistic and cultural communication, without losing sight of the educational framework in which it is to be developed, within the multiple activities of the Cultural Week.


    The theme proposed for this call for postal art, the traditional culture, will allow all participants to value the constitutive elements of their culture and traditions, strengthening, in many occasions, the discovery of their roots, the importance of memory and respect for elders as repositories of popular wisdom.

    The people most related to Galicia, and all those who so wish, can incorporate to their artistic work those aspects of the legacy of Antonio Fraguas that they consider of their interest: anthropology, ethnography, cultural heritage, etc. In these links you can expand information.

This should be understood as a term which refers to a language which has been marginalized, persecuted or even prohibited at any time in history, which implies a cut in its use and different problems to its conception as a useful element or as identifier of a collective reality.

    Minoritized languages ​​and minority languages ​​are not the same, since the latter only refer to a lack of users. Minoritized languages, however, have seen restricted their possibilities of social use. That is to say, minoritized languages cannot be used as main languages in concrete uses, in comparison to the large possibilities of using that characterize a dominant language. In addition, minoritized languages ​​tend to suffer unilateral bilingualism of speakers, which means that, in practice, these people have in their repertoire the language of their own and even the dominant language, but generally not on the same level. The minoritized linguistic community thus becomes a subset of the dominant and therefore is subordinate to the dominant community and thus is perceived. Works sent to the I International Mail Art Biennale Zeca Afonso should reflect any aspect of this conflicting reality.

    The decision to choose this topic has to do with the very reality of Galicia, whose own language is lessened by the pressure of Spanish despite having a great development in the Portuguese speaking countries of the five continents. However, since AJA Galicia, we encourage you sending works that reflect other situations in other parts of the world, being aware that it is a problem that threatens other languages ​​all around.

  • description

    "Che-Ché" was a beautiful white cat, a Turkish Angora, my beloved Pet [Feb.14,2013 ~ Mzo.17,2018] (05 years old). Unfortunately, he suddenly crossed the Rainbow during his romantic persecutions. It was a very sad episode that left the heart desolate in our Home!

    ... the time passes and the pain softens with resignation, remembering beautiful moments and the satisfaction of having given it a "nice life".

    In my return to the Visual Arts, after 18 years of absence, "Che-Ché" has been that inspiration engine to translate and tribute him in several illustrations of Postal Art where I have participated in several Countries of the World during 2018. Many have been the Mail Art Organizers that have allowed me (jointly and severally) my participation in a Digital manner due to the non-existence (temporary) of the International Public Mail in Venezuela and for reasons beyond our control. For this reason, I have had the great motivation and the endeavor to summon all those Visual Artists, Cat Lovers and people with plastic interests (of any age) who wish to participate in this Project of "Virtual Postal Art on Facebook®" ... I do not know if someone came up with the idea before but I think it's great, something different and new!

    In our municipality of Alphen-Chaam still exists the remains of an old and the only Commandery in the Netherlands of the Knights Templars, a monks order dating back to the Middle Ages; they were crusaders. The inhabitants of our region were liable to a monastery of yet another monks order, 50 kilometers away. The monks had a predominant role in life in the past times. They managed the lands, they built the monasteries, the churches and the hospitals, protected the pilgrims, farmers and the citizens. They made the rules, wrote the books. They preceded in the rituals of spiritual life and were the guards of civilization and morality. Throughout the world and in all religions and civilizations are people like our monks. Both men and women. Even in each human being lurks a monk, a moralist, a dedicated person and with the desire to live in peace and regularity, occasionally in the seclusion of the surrounding world. There is also being mocked with this misunderstood eccentrics. For example, in the works of Hieronymus Bosch many a monk and saint are represented, for good and for evil. Antony in temptation, John as a scholar and writer, a flying monk, a drunken monk, etc. Not every monk was a good guy, not every bad guy was a monk.

    A Call for Art[ist] dedicated to the "most famous unknown artist" of New York and its non-shape.

    Ray Johnson (1927-1995) a seminal figure of Pop Art in the 50s was a pioneer of Mail Art.

    His works reflect his encyclopedic erudition, his promiscuous range of interests and a mysterious proto-Google ability to discover connections between a myriad of images, facts and people.

    This project aims to stimulate visual research through an extraordinary means of communication: invisible, underground, nostalgic, subversive, poetic, playful, unofficial and unconventional. He wants to draw attention to a code that guarantees the transversality and multidisciplinary nature of the languages ​​and the antagonist of the commodification prevailing in art.

    "Where can we go with imagination and creativity?"

    "Be extremely thin to the point of not having a shape"

    The Web, an open space par excellence, is the natural place where every single artist can promote his work to a potentially planetary audience; this is why the initiative is called MYSELF: we intend to offer everyone the opportunity to tell each other - through their own work of art.

    The format is mandatory that of the simple, small box that each artist must build following the instructions and the attached template .pdf, which must be printed in A4 / letter format, on any media: paper, cardboard, glossy sheets, colored, photo paper, adhesive paper, etc. ...

    Each artist can use the box itself as a support for his work (drawing it, painting it, using it as a base for collage, etc.) or inserting one or more small works inside it.

    Realize your MYSELF BOX starting from the provided file, printed on any support, in A4 format and build it following the assembly instructions » https://photos.app.goo.gl/SS5Eqoz41gWDXDpe6

    Turn it into a work of art or use it as a container for one's own work or more work.

    Fill in the appropriate form (https://goo.gl/forms/itj2QwKRuOblt4h63) and send the job to the address (which is shown after completing the form with your data and clicking on "send").

    Dispersal’s mission is to cultivate the exchange of tactile ideas between individuals across physical distance with the hope of producing greater empathic connections.

    You have been chosen out of infinite possibilities in the multimegaverse.

    If you are reading these words your vibrational signature and eighth dimensional true essence has brought you to this specific moment in the time-space continuum.

    Dispersal Collective seeks your dreams, cellular memories and vibrations in the form of images, words, and artworks for Homeworld (Interplanetary Migration).

    Dispersal asks correspondence artists to address migration through an imaginal and real lens. In the future, and already having occurred in the past, people perform interplanetary, intergalactic and inter-dimensional migration. You are migrating from your Homeworld, hometown and shifting your state of being to a new planet, relative place or dimension….

    Through images and/or words…

    Share with us your dreams, cellular memories, and vibrations that you would like to add to the collective web of consciousness.

    At this year’s edition, the Amanita Bunker exhibition returns to the streets of this small village yet in the form of art bombing. Authors are invited to create artwork regarding the requested theme and join the yearly Mushroom Festival.

    We truly don’t know if mushrooms are looking for a hideout, inside the local’s mailboxes, from all the hungry stomachs at this festival. Maybe they are running away from the constant fires that overwhelm our Portuguese forests and their natural habitat. Or perhaps they are just growing so much that they spread all the way from the forest till the habitant’s mailboxes and the village streets.

    This being said… artists are invited to join in by sending artwork to the curators or by sending it directly to the village addresses.

    All the artwork sent to the curators will end up being spread around the streets and all the work sent directly to the habitants will create a vaster bombing and mushroom invasion.

    If sending directly to the habitants, do go on Google Street View and grab address from the city center of “Alcaide Fundão Portugal”. Do also send a scan of that same artwork to the provided email address so that we can archive it online and print a few more to spread on the streets.

    We do ask you to add somewhere on the artwork the hashtag #AMANITABUNKER and the website www.amanitabunker.yzonk.com so that the receiver may go online and learn about this project.

    The Movement Arte da mangiare mangiare Arte honors Casa Museo Boschi Di Stefano launches an international mail art call.

    Nowadays a true relationship between the Artist and the Art Collector is missing, the new logic of the art market ends up confusing the economic value of a work with its artistic value.

    The choice of this “resistant” art form is determined by the desire to introduce the virtuous model of the Boschi Di Stefano spouses’ collecting to the greatest number of international artists and encourages to an art networking with the aim of reflecting on the role of the collector today. An enquiry that starts from an example of the past: Stefano Boschi and his civic sense which lead him to donate his collection to the City of Milan, transforming his private home into one of the most interesting Houses – Museum in the world.

    CALL FOR WORKS WHICH EXPLORE THE THEME OF DEMOCRACY

    This International Mail Art Call opens a channel to reflect on the current struggle for democracy, both in Brazil and in the international scene. In Latin America, postal art emerged and developed in the context of military dictatorships which, then, dominated many countries of this continent, including Brazil.

    Considering this historic aspect of Latin American postal art, as well as the current Brazilian political and institutional crisis, which has worsened since the impeachment process of former President Dilma Rousseff, and more recently with the increase of political violence in Brazil, we invite proposals that reflect on the democratic values we are fighting for.

    From the Project of University Extension of the UNLP "Building Social Ties" we launched a call to participate in an art mail experience. The call is mainly oriented to projects dedicated to art in perspective of human rights, community transformation and working in contexts of greater social vulnerability. Also, any interested person can participate, without age limits and from anywhere. It is not a requirement to be an artist.

    Postcards received within the dates of the calls will be exposed, in principle, in a sample to develop in the city of La Plata during the month of October. Once said sample is finished, they will become part of the file of the "Building Social Ties" Project.

    The ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) are, as the name suggests, works of art created with the intention of being traded. They were used for a long time, in the artistic medium as business cards that represented the artist's capacities and were exchanged, in hand, among artists, gallerists and art dealers and others. With this small catalog of artworks, it would thus be possible for anyone interested to learn techniques from other artists, to own a small private collection of art or even to use them as real business cards at the time of commissioning works.

    "Like echoes off and for a long time tend to a deep unity..."

    - Baudelaire


    Do you want to be found in the forest of symbols?

    “Symbol” comes from Greek σύμ-βάλλω, «put together».

    If you d’like to be found by someone who traces back your footsteps, the symbols you have left for him/her to find you, join us.

    You can keep your name secret, or just a message, it is up to you. The important thing is that you disguise yourself. Because only the initiates, who are able to hear you, can find you. This game is about recognizing each other.

    Where and how you want to be found it's your decision.

    What can’t be reached by rationality and science, agape and love will find it naturally, let others decipher what you have hidden and only through a spontaneous intuition it will be possible to come to you.

    Is there a code in art? No! Art is free. References, memories, colors, sounds, smells, fragrances, associations... thanks to their sensibility artists are able to make the forest of symbols, where they hide their concepts and their correspondences, understandable.

    Everyone has his own code to communicate. Find someone who knows your code and knows how to decrypt it, because it vibrates within himself too. It's like a genetic code.

    The genetic code is the set of rules contained in our deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA.

    Communication is the center of everything. Art was meant as an instrument of communication since the beginning of human history, when cavemen started painting on the cave walls, matching symbols to objects and concepts for the first time. Creating meaning is an artificial process but communicating is an innate process.

    Communication is an animal feature, it's pure existence and Art comes from the instinct of a direct grip on reality, a desire to reproduce ourselves in Reality and Beauty. So, the mission is to communicate with symbols, with images and alchemy that refer to other of ourselves.

    Join in and lose yourself in the forest of symbols, an emerald dark forest, behind the shadow of an apparent misunderstanding and, let the your message be deciphered, look for the messages you have left.

    Whoever finds you, he/she speaks your same language.

    Do you want to play?

    Book is a concept, a format, a support, type of structure, a construction, it is a container, it is a resource ... ultimately it is an object and basically it is communication space.

    Territory that has historically been occupied by the word, the artist takes, appropriates it and includes it among its own expressive resources. Experience your way by deploying personal baggage and unique creative skills.

    Shapes, textures, texts, colors, objects, images, etc. All kinds of techniques and materials. The possible forms are endless.

    By dispensing with the unidirectional rigor imposed by reading, the journeys can be surprising and more like our own world, infinitely complex, fragmented, with successive layers and mysterious folds.

Work should be attached separately via email. AOM accepts jpegs for visual work (no greater than 4Mb), and .doc/.docx/.rtf for text-based work. AOM also accepts audio/ video/animation submissions. Hypertext/electronic literature/e-poetry are also accepted.

    Essays/non-fiction/journalism are (heartily) accepted (especially related to contemporary art/poetry). AOM indulges the non-mainstream. If you have something to say that bucks accepted (and acceptable) dogma (especially within so-called experimental circles), and is (probably) considered unpublishable by both mainstream and “experimental” outlets, please feel free to submit.

    Experimental work only. Experimental=complete & absolute flights of fancy. Again, AOM indulges the self-indulgent, so go for it. Mags often say they want “experimental,” but don’t actually mean it. AOM wants your insane stuff, emphatically so!–the stuff that won’t be published in “respectable” academic lit/poetry mags. The goal of AOM is not to promote a house style; this is probably a pipe-dream, but try we must!
