    DETOURNEMENT: turning expressions of the capitalist system and its media culture against itself —as when slogans and logos are turned against their advertisers or the political status quo.

    …. 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.

    Send the Robot anti-corporate/anti-capitalist/anti-brand/anti-media (…. or whatever you are against) mail art.

  • I International Biennial of Mail Art Zeca Afonso

  • show 2019-05-01 > 2019-05-31
  • ongoing exhibition > 12 days left
  • show address Galicia & Portugal
  • description

    The theme chosen for the I International Mail Art Biennale Zeca Afonso, organized by the José Afonso Galiza Association (AJA Galiza), focuses on minoritized languages. 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

    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.

    Postmodern is the name given to the understanding that emerged as a criticism of modernism after 1960. The most important feature is the ”eclectic“ structure that we can describe as ”eclectic En. Postmodernism can be defined as an area of ​​freedom that does not recognize rules and boundaries in art.

  • The 10th Anniversary Edition of A BOOK ABOUT DEATH

  • show 2019-09-14 > 2019-11-02
  • 118 days left for premier
  • show address Islip Art Museum | Brookwood Hall | 50 Irish Lane | East Islip | NY 11730 USA
  • description

    A BOOK ABOUT DEATH is an open, unbound book produced by artists worldwide. Artists are invited to create a “page” in the form of a postcard about death– any aspect about death. Works can be of any design, personal or conceptual, color or black and white.

    The original work about death stays with you, the artist. The 500 postcards produced from the work is for the exhibition, and are sent to the museum.

    Artists can include any information about themselves on the cards, front or back. There are no age limits, no areas or ideas that are prohibited. The exhibition organizers only ask that you submit good work, worthy of an interesting and exciting page in this global book.

    A BOOK ABOUT DEATH takes its inspiration from the late, underground American artist Ray Johnson (1927 - 1995). Ray Johnson’s unbound “book” of the same title was mailed to his New York Correspondence School “students” and included pages in his idiosyncratic style that were funny, sad and ironic “one-page essays” on death. With the A BOOK ABOUT DEATH project, artists are invited to plunge into subject in creating their own pages that score the dramatic final dance of death.

    Each artist 's contribution will be displayed at the Islip Art Museum in New York. Visitors will be free to take cards and create their own book about death. As the cards are removed, the exhibition will disappear.


    HOW TO SUBMIT

    1. Produce an artwork about death. Make 500 postcards and mail the package to Islip Art Museum. All submissions will be accepted if they arrive in time. Artists may produce more than one card design if they wish.


    2. Once images are produced, a light-weight jpg should be e-mailed to LUANN PALAZZO, along with the artist’s name, country of origin, and URL (artist web site address) for publication on the blog. This will allow the organizers to archive the works and artist details. Other artists will also be able to visit the exhibition in progress.


    You can either produce the cards yourself or upload the file to any number of printers for delivery to the museum. You, as the artist are in complete control of your artwork and cards.

    The organizers will not collect cards for the artists. We ask that those visiting the museum only take one set per person, leaving enough for others.

    Institutions who wish to have a complete book will have to come to the museum space and get their own pages/cards or assign someone to do it for them. The organizers are not responsible for the cards, but will see to it that all cards received are displayed and available to visitors. The organizers are not responsible for the return of any remaining cards; should there be any remaining cards, these will become part of the Islip Art Museum archives.

    At this 2019’s edition, the Amanita Bunker exhibition returns to the streets of this small village reinforcing the artistic bombings of the previous 2018's edition. Authors are invited to create artwork regarding the requested theme and join the yearly Mushroom Festival.

    Amanita Bunker, wears now robes of a fictional political party. The Amanites manifest themselves and demand distinction and promise improvements on the village. In the form of stickers, pins, posters, slogans, political propaganda and other equally ridiculous but serious paraphernalia ... artists are invited to participate by sending works that will eventually be scattered through the streets in the form of propaganda.

    "Fires continue to plague the country and our memory is short. When we take down forests or take other actions that can deplete fungal populations, this does not only affect fungi - it ultimately affects Homo sapiens as well. Fungi is an ignored realm, but this kingdom is more important than many of us imagine." -- Nicholas Money
