    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • about

    microbo.net has always investigated the relationship between virtual and real, using the Web to promote the visual arts.

    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").

    Durante los últimos años, y coincidiendo con la llegada del correo electrónico y los canales cibernéticos, el mail art ha sido sentenciado a muerte en múltiples ocasiones.

    A partir de estas sentencias, y dado que no acaba de morir, pensamos que el Mausoleo de Morille podría ser un buen lugar para su enterramiento definitivo, confiando en la resurrección de las almas y el renacimiento posterior en la otra dimensión.

    La exposición previa al enterramiento tendrá un formato atípico, con actos rituales, festejos y romería, finalizando con la introducción de las obras en el objeto volante no identificado (de la fotografía) y traslado al cementerio de arte, Museo Mausoleo Morille, perteneciente a Red Museion, plataforma transfronteriza de Museos.

    Como acto final y previo al enterramiento se procederá, a través de conexiones del sistema UFO2x24, a agradecer a los habitantes de la galaxia , por los servicios prestados a través de la oficina postal interestelar y el sincero deseo de que en el futuro sigamos colaborando en la otra dimensión. ¡El Arte Postal ha muerto! ¡Viva el Arte Postal!

    …. a variation on previous work, in which the newly created work has a meaning that is antagonistic or antithetical to the original. The original media work that is détourned is somewhat familiar to the target audience, so that it can appreciate the opposition of the new message.

    Fellow artists, be aware that althought 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 dealed 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. This 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 trough art that creates awareness about this 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 it's 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 is 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 to 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 this subjects/problems and stop being 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 this subjects do trigger some folks since this open call was target 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 this 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 fat phobia; excessive or gratuitous violence; homophobia and heterosexism; incest (including any and all elements of romantic or sexual relationships between family, tonal in theme, thought, 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 trans misogyny; violence; …

    Art is the perfect tool for awareness on this matter.
