Mail Art: A Complaint Letter to the Internet

Tolhuistuin, Amsterdam (NL)

In pre-internet times, physical mail was used by artists and writers to exchange small works of art, poetry and letters. Mail Art was an alternative and intimate genre, stimulating exchange and setting up new networks.

Anja Groten and Karl Moubarak (Hackers & Designers) host a workshop during the Read My World Festival where participants will get the chance to talk about their experiences of the Internet during the global pandemic. They will do this by means of writing physical letters (!) and collectively designing a protocol that defines how our letters will travel in the network we create.
