Np: Np, 1970’s. Thirty-three offset printed and appropriated postcards in various sizes, to which is added three letter-sized envelopes with letters, two letter-sized posters, and eight appropriated cable telegrams. Text in English, Dutch, and French.
A collection of printed, rubber-stamped, and handwritten mail art from one of the more conceptual European mail artists with a focus on appropriation. A perfect example being the rubber stamping of the Flemish painter Ruben’s signature which shows up on several pieces. This amongst other philosophies and ideas on the state of art in Belgium, the commerce of art, Ray Johnson, and the role of architecture to name a few. Geluwe served as the director of the fictitious real institutions A.R.T. (Art Recycling Terminal), M.A.O. (Multinational Art Office), and was the director, curator, and archivist of the M.O.M. (The Museum of Museums).
Most examples have been mailed and therefore show usual wear but remain in very good condition with age toning to a few of the documents, bumps to corners. Item #189
