Doc of a project to support the rebellion in Chiapas, Mexico
Promoted by Clemente PaDIN, who else?
Artistamps made by Boog and Joel Cohen (The Sticker Dude / Ragged Edge Press), USA
Doc of a project to support Humberto Nilo, a teacher in Chile who was sacked after introducing a mail art project on freedom in art and education.
Project was supported by AUMA, a network group connecting the efforts of
Cesar Reglero / Boek 861 and Tartarugo in Spain, Clemente Padin in Uruguay, Fernando Garcia Delgado and Vortice in Argentina and Hans Braumuller in Germany (who later moved to Chile).
The project called also to end the impunity of former dictator Pinochet as contrast to what happened to Nilo...
Doc for the 100th anniversary (1895-1995) of the Cuban rebel José Marti (who wrote Guantanamera)
Coordinated by Clemente Padin and supported by other networkers in Chile and Spain,
resulted in involving 315 mail artists from 38 different countries.
Performance art is a big part of mail art as action art on the street or in public places
often to make statements that challenge the establishment.
Clemente Padin is one of the great performance artists in the network.
It is not a coincidence we met in London because he was invited to attend a performance festival.
The movement ART STRIKE (1990-1993) in which mail artist played a very important role was a challenge to official culture and institutions or like Clemente said: ART STRIKE TO DEMOLISH «serious» culture.
On the other hand NEVER was there produced so much art and mail art as during the ART STRIKE campaign, LoL!
