at ChertLüdde in Berlin:
The exhibition presents all correspondence with artists whose surname (or name of an artistic group) begins with the letter A. Every single piece will be available to be accessed by the public, while a publication will present an indexed list of the contents. A selection of works will be displayed in vitrines while the rest will be alphabetically numbered and archived inside folders, that the visitors can browse through and take out to closely review. Another section will be dedicated to some of the books from the artist’s archive, again books whose title or content is connected with the letter A or which address the alphabet as such. A video slide show presents a collections of stamps created and used by different artists in their Mail Art correspondence. The exhibition will be further the beginning of a large scale publication project also titled “The Mail Art Archive of Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt and Robert Rehfeldt”. To each letter of the alphabet a single book will be dedicated, where again the same criteria apply. Each book contains a long alphabetical numbered list, showing artists’ names, title, description, country of origin and year of what they sent.
