365 Postcards

PRESENTED ON JUN 12, 2017
IN LONDON @ VOL 15

" I have a kinda strange hobby. I had it since 2007..."

In "365 Postcards" from PechaKucha Night London Vol. 15,  Andy Hoang spoke about Mailart365 - Mailart (a new term to you we assume) is a term which describes a piece of artwork made with the intention of sending it somewhere in the post. 365 is the number of days in a year.

Mailart 365 is a year-long project starting on December 1st, 2010, to make and send a piece of art in the post every day for a year. Artists attempt to make and send 365 pieces in the post, to whoever they please and while doing so, they’re posting up their efforts right here on Mailart 365.

Since the start of the project over 10,000 pieces of mailart have been made and sent out and new pieces are being made every day.

APPLAUD THIS!

Greetings from the colonies: Postcards from a painful past

BY INGE OOSTERHOFF
@ VOL 27 ON NOV 23, 2015

"Some [postcards] promoted colonial ideology and served to uphold the supposed hierarchy of the world, with white societies on top." 

The Golden Age of postcards (1907-1915) coincided with the popularization of anthropology and renewed interest in European colonies. Colonial postcards from this time illustrate some of the most prominent ideas of colonialism and beliefs regarding ethnic hierarchy. In Greetings from the Colonies: Postcards from a Painful Past from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol. 27, writer and scholar Inge Oosterhoff retraces these ideas, as well as the ways in which France, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and other colonizing countries viewed and propagandized their “colonized peoples.”

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, December  15, 2015.
