***  LA SUBVERSION ES VIDA, LA SUMISION ES MUERTE
A más de 100 días de huelga, los estudiantes de la UNAM seguimos con la firme decisión de no 
claudicar, de defender el derecho a la educación pública, de defender lo que a los mexicanos nos 
pertenece y el gobierno intenta privatizar: A pesar de la represión y la campaña de desprestigio 
que las autoridades universitarias, el gobierno federal y los medios de información hacen de la 
huelga, los estudiantes en paro seguiremos realizando actividades para mantener y extender 
nuestra lucha, por este motivo el Consejo de Huelga de la ENAP convoca nuevamente a los 
artistas postales a participar en este movimento con la libre circulación de ideas que el arte 
postal permite. 
Arte Postal por el derecho a la educación pública, a la libertad en la creación artística, en 
apoyo al EZLN (celebración del sexto aniversario del levantamieto insurgente en Chiapas y por 
la solución pacífica del conflicto), en apoyo  a todos los pueblos indigenas y a todos los pueblos 
castigados por el imperialismo, por la democracia en la cultural y la política mundial, por las 
luchas organizadas sociales y artísticas que habrán de librarse el próximo milenio.
Todo libre, no selección, no premios, documentación a todos los participantes, los trabajos serán
expuestos en enero de 2000 como extensión de las actividades del movimiento generado por la 
huelga en la UNAM en los espacios independientes abiertos por el movimiento estudiantil, ya sea 
el Área de Trabajo de la Escuela Nacional de Artes Pláticas, el territorio libre y rebelde del Foro 
Abierto de la Casa del Lago o en cualquier otro espacio cultural universitario independiente.

Tema: La subversión es vida, la sumisión es muerte.
Fecha Límite: 31 de diciembre de1999

***  CALL OF THE ICONOCLAST !
                                                    
i-con-o-clast
- 1. anyone opposed to the religious use of images or advocating the destruction of such images.
- 2. a person who attacks or ridicules traditional or venerated institutions or ideas regarded by him 
as erroneous or based on superstition.
I have been asked by the direction of the art Museum of Bassano del Grappa, an historical town in 
Northern Italy, to act as curator of the "mail art section" in a big exhibition that will take place there 
in the summer of 2000. Titled "SENTIERI INTERROTTI (Broken Paths) - Crisis of representation and 
iconoclasm in the arts from the 50s to the end of the century", this show will be hosted on the three 
large floors of a beautiful historical building and will include materials from various avantgarde 
movements such as Cobra, Lettrism, Gutaj, Wiener Aktionismus, Fluxus, Visual Poetry and more.
For the mail art section, that together with Fluxus will take up most of the upper floor, I intend to 
exhibit several collective projects selected from the E.O.N. Archive (from the late 70s till the 90s), 
some important publications and a sample of individual works (arranged chronologically from Ray 
Johnson to mail art on-line). I also want to present at least one original collective project, specially 
conceived for this occasion. Following the theme of the show, this project will be called The Table 
of the Little Iconoclast, a long white simple table in the middle of the mail art room, with several big 
rubber stamps with nice wooden handles tied with small chains to the sides, and over the table 
some large ink pads in different colours and stacks of paper bearing the design of targets 
(concentric circles) over different symbolic "icons" (faces of political leaders, religious leaders, 
media celebrities, well known corporate logos or objects, famous artists, celebrated art-works, etc.). 
So the visitors will be encouraged to use the rubber stamps as "weapons" in the iconoclastic act
of stamping out the target-images as they see fit, and then take (if they want) the resulting "work" 
home. I hope in this way to give an idea of the hands-on, collaborative, anyone-can-do-it aspect 
of mail art.
In the occasion of the exhibition, I also plan to print and distribute free a special issue of ARTE 
POSTALE! magazine on the theme of ICONOCLASM: so this is an INVITE for you to please send 
me anything iconoclastic (works in free size & media) and/or a proposal for a rubber stamp image 
and/or one or more target-icons for the table project. The maximum size for the black and white 
rubber stamp image is cm. 6 X 6 (2 3/8"): within these limits you are free to give the shape you 
prefer to your rubber stamp, round, square, triangular, whatever, but please stick to the 
"iconoclasm" theme (works with no relation to the theme will not be used for the project).
Send the image for rubber stamps as close as possible to the actual size, camera ready, 
and of course do not use half-tones or small details that would not transfer well to the rubber 
medium. For the target-icons, send one or more black-and-white images easy to reproduce 
(photos, collages, etc.), I will enlarge or reduce them to the right size and add the target 
motif over the image. 
The rubber stamp proposals and the other materials received will be reproduced in the special 
ICONOCLASM issue of ARTE POSTALE!, only a selection of images will be transformed in real 
rubber stamps for the show but ALL those who will contribute in ANY way to this project will 
receive a free copy of the magazine (with at least their name listed in it) in Summer 2000.
Deadline: January 31, 2000
Mail to:  Vittore Baroni:  Via C. Battisti 339 - 55049 Viareggio - Italy
Please participate, be iconoclastic !

*** LIVING IN THE MIRROR - An international mail art show for children
Kidscommons, an American children's museum, and ARTColumbus, a group of visual artists, are 
sponsoring a children's mail art show in celebration of the new millennium and the 30th anniversary 
of Earth Day. Collaborating with a Belgian mail artist, we hope to provide children the opportunity 
to express positive ideas about the future through the universal language of the visual arts.
Mail art was popularized in the '60s by Ray Johnson of the New York Correspondence School, 
and many contemporary artists use the art form to express themselves. It's easy to participate 
in a mail art show, and there are no juries or fees to pay in order to enter. Also there are usually 
no limitations placed on the materials and techniques an artist can use. He or she simply illustrates 
the announced theme and mails the work.
We'll  tie our mail art show into Earth Day 2000, a worldwide celebration commemorating the 30th 
anniversary of this special day set aside to honor Mother Earth. While Earth Day will take place in 
just a 24-hour period, there will be thousands of observances and programs leading up to it.
We'll use the occasion to encourage children to reuse materials when making their entries. Reuse 
helps save the energy and natural resources necessary to make new art materials, and it saves 
the landfill space needed to dispose of solid waste.
Children's Mail Art Show Call for Entry
+ Eligibility:  Children through 12 years of age
+ Theme:  "Living in the Mirror"
Draw a self portrait, create a piece of art which shows your hopes and dreams for the future, 
especially the environment, or make art which illustrates what you want to be when you grow up 
or how you will dress and live.
+ Size, background, and media: Create the mail art on a 4"x6" post card. A card of this size is the 
largest that can be mailed in the United States without having to add extra postage. The art does 
not have to be done on an "official" post card, just something of similar weight. Try to reuse a light 
weight piece of card stock for your entry, or, if you prefer, mail a larger drawing in an envelope. 
You may create the art with any technique, and all media are acceptable, including collage, 
markers, crayons, pen and ink, colored pencils, rubber stamps, tempera, and watercolor.
+ Show Rules: No fees, no jury, and no returns. All work will be exhibited.
Print your first  and last names, age, street address, city, state, zip code and country somewhere 
on your entry. Include your province, if applicable. Teachers, scout leaders, and other care givers 
can mail many entries together, thereby saving mailing costs.
+ Exhibit: All work will be shown at the children's museum. At the end of the show, the cards 
will be packed into old suitcases and hat boxes to tour the Bartholomew County elementary 
schools. Children will have the opportunity to handle the cards, and to see the art and study 
the stamps and post marks.
Documentation will be provided to all children who enter. The form which the recognition takes will 
depend on the number of entries the museum receives. If possible, a list of children's names and 
countries will be mailed to each child or care giver who enters on behalf of his or her group. 
Otherwise, all names, first name and last initial only, and countries will be listed in a virtual catalog 
of entries at the kidscommons Web site which is located at  www.kidscommons.com/frame.html
It's necessary that we collect the children's names and addresses in order to mail the documents, 
but the information will not be shared with any other organization or business. If you wish to receive 
documentation and you are concerned about your child's privacy, list your workplace address 
instead of the home address.
Deadline for the kidscommons Mail Art Show is March 31, 2000
Send mail art to:  Mail Art 2000 - kidscommons - The Commons Mall
325 Washington St. - Columbus IN 47201 - U.S.A.
If you'd like to participate in the Belgian project, make a self portrait or portrait of the living
environment of children today. Any size, any medium. Children up to 12 years of age are eligible.
The project is open to individual children and to groups (schools, youth houses, clubs, etc.).
Deadline: February 29, 2000. //  No fees, no jury, and no returns. All work will be exhibited 
from April to June, 2000. Documentation will be provided to all participating children.
Workshops with children were organized in Brussels' schools and youth houses last May. 
The children who attended will participate in this project and contribute to other mail art shows.
Exchanges and contributions are planned with other children's groups all over the world. 
International contacts to develop a mail art network for, from and between children are: 
Lois Klassen (Canada), Marilyn Brackney (USA), Julia Tant (England), R. Westphalen (Germany).
This list will be growing together with the expanding project. Adult mail artists can support the 
activity by sending art materials to the children in Belgium. We'll use them in the workshops, 
and donations will be mentioned to the kids and in the documentation.
To the Parents: We'll protect all children: addresses will NOT be published or spread around. 
In the documentation we'll mention only the name, age and country of the child. Please mention 
this on every entry or contributed work.
Send entries to:  Children Mail Art Project / Living in the Mirror
Foyer VZW c/o Francis Marissens - Werkhuizenstraaat 25 - B1080 Brussels - Belgium
This project is a collaboration among mail artists Luc Fierens, Annina Van Sebroeck, Florence 
Libotte, Sebastien Vellut, Guido Vermeulen and Foyer Brussels, a socio-cultural association 
working mainly with immigrant youth as a regional integration center, and the Belgian Post Office. 
Coordinator for Foyer is Francis Marissens.

***  PEDIDO DE MATERIAL POETICO PARA CONFERENCIA  -  Clemente Padín - Uruguay
Estimados amigos, Como Uds. saben, soy licenciado en Letras Hispánicas y estoy dando 
conferencias y cursos sobre poesía experimental en diversos lugares y Universidades del mundo 
entero. Ahora, he sido invitado por la Universidad de Barcelona para dar una charla sobre el tema 
LA LITERATURA FUERA DE LOS LIBROS, el 2 de noviembre de 1999 y necesito nuevo material 
poético, sobre todo, editado en video, CD Rom, cassettes 3 y 1/2 o diapositivas o transparencias.
Bien sé que la gran mayoría de este tipo poemas están ya grabados en los wegsites y que podría 
conectarme a ellos durante la conferencia. Pero, bien se sabe lo difícil que es, en plena conferencia, 
coordinar el tiempo y el lugar exactos. Por esa razón, ruego el envío a mi dirección postal de los 
trabajos poéticos para esta conferencia y otras que daré en el futuro. Por mi parte publicaré un 
catálogo en donde constarán los autores, incluyendo textos y curriculums y los enviaré a todos 
los colaboradores.
Si es posible, me gustaría recibir el material cerca del 30 de octubre de 1999. 
Saludos fraternos ... Clemente Padín: C. Correo Central 1211 - 11000 Montevideo - Uruguay

***  ZYBOOKS ARTISTS' BOOKS
Dear Zybooks Friends:
Just to keep you up to date with our site: Zybooks artists' books on line will be at the London 
Artists' Book Fair 1999 at The Barbican Art Gallery, 19-21 (Fri - Sun) November '99.  
Please visit the exhibition if you can it will be a big event this year as it is in the main art gallery 
and will have a performance area, bar, events, workshops etc. Artists' books are going to get a lot 
of exposure, and Zybooks is as yet the only showcase for contemporary artists' books in the UK.
The Zybooks site will be projected into the performance area as an 'event'.
I also plan to publish a book on-line (that is if the Barbican will allow me a phone line) made by 
the visitors to the exhibition. If the Barbican cannot provide a phone line then the e-book will be 
published immediately after the exhibition. It will comprise images/text works created by the 
gallery visitors, scanned in and sequenced - you will be able to view this later - details will be 
sent to you. For those of you who provide resources on-line for artists please send me via email 
or snail mail your information so I can show it at the event for the benefit of the artists visiting 
the gallery.  Sincerely ...  Gandha Key (Miss)

***  LET'S START COMMUNICATION  -  e-mail from Vesna Milicevic to Luc Fierens
Vesna Milicevic:  ves.mil@yubc.net
on 30-07-99   21:39:23
Dear Luc Fierens,
Yesterday I sent you email asking you to check if a italian lady who organizes the project 
"Swallow" has till now received my artwork. Today I've got a reply so do not bother yourself 
about this.  Anyway thanks.

In your latest letter you wrote that we need to communicate and called to stop decoration. 
It is very hard for me to believe the art can change the world especially after recent events but 
it could certainly alleviate the pain and despair showing the better, extraordinary world of an artist.
As a professional painter and citizen of Europe at least, I'm deeply affected by the fact that some 
of the oldest Christianity monuments in Kosovo (13th and 14th century), are being fired or badly 
damaged during last few months by albanian terrorists in front of the eyes of Peacekeeping mission 
of UN. These monasteries and churches represent a prove of serbian devotion to Christian tradition 
and their high artistic and historical value cannot be estimated but we are in position (I mean to 
all of us, not just people in Serbia) to watch  this devastation and do nothing to prevent bigger 
catastrophe. 
Now when the Serbs in Kosovo as the victims of albanian terrorists running away from their homes
nobody talks about human rights and nobody cries looking serbian refugees. Of course there are 
no enough tears for all, the world has already cried watching pictures of albanian refugees. This 
staff about Yugoslavia becomes too boring. Now it is time for new, more excited war. (Of course 
american airforces are not out of work, they're still bombing Iraq but it is just exercise and 
preparation for something bigger.)
There is a song of Manic Street Preachers, and I'll finish the letter with it. "IF YOU TOLERATE 
THIS THAN YOUR CHILDREN WILL BE NEXT".
So in the name of justice, and possible better world order we should open the eyes, look around 
us and communicate because the lack of communication is the lack of the truth.
Dear Luc, if you like you can use this letter and send it to other networkers.You have my 
permission and I am ready to participate in any project that can help in spreading the truth and 
unmasking an evil.   Best wishes from ... Vesna Milicevic ... Belgrade

en una pequeña librería del siglo pasado en Roma, ha encontrado entre manuscritos de botánica 
y apuntes de recetas culinarias del afamado Dr. Méndelson, un singular grabado que nos 
demuestra una vez mas las intricadas relaciones que existen entre el conocimiento científico, 
el arte y Las Toninas Mecánicas.

Atentos saludos ... Mopard Fetomekov
