Mail Art in for September and

sad news about Guido Vermeulen

 

Posted on September 30, 2014 by Theresa Easton

 

Guido Vermeulen, Belgium Mail Artist and poet, contacted me over a year ago and started a discussion about the First World War, who funded it and opened up the world of Courrier de Guerre magazines.  Printed and distributed by the German Army in occupied Belgium, the ‘zines’ were printed in German, French and Dutch.  Guido had many of these zines, which he ripped up and painted onto, altering the original image, sometimes unrecognizable.  He forwarded a copy to me for this Mail Art Project with Young People in Hartlepool via another avid Mail Artist in the USA, Otto Sherman. Like a lot of Mail Artists new to the protocol and etiquette of Mail Art, I found a warm and welcoming response from Guido and enjoyed his forthright views and political debate.

I was saddened to learn via IUOMA that Guido had died last week. Comments and thoughts around the world, continue to flood into the group page organised by Ruud Jansen, in many different languages.  Its reassuring to see his work being re-posted and aired in such a collective forum.
