Mailart ist art by mail.
Artists from all over the world follow the footsteps of Ray Johnson who started the mailart-movement in the 1960ies by founding the New York Correspondence School.
In the periphery of Neo Dada, Fluxus and Pop Art a network arose that is open for everyone - artists and artistically interesteds.
From the beginning on mailart was an art of network reflecting itself, developing artistic ideas and virtual personae as well as changing the social behaviour of participants. All that is possible because mailart always is an art of thought inviting to experiment and play.
