Decentralized World Wide Networker Congress 1992 Postcard (Mail Art,Global Networking-1992)

A postcard received from the American mail artist FA GA GA GA, printed  for the Decentralized World-Wide Networker Congress in 1992.
Here a few lines about it:
"The Decentralized Networker Congress of 1992, Initially conceived by Networker H.R. Fricker,

and coordinated by Peter W. Kaufman eventually involved over 500 artists from 25 countries and over 250 events. 

The original text is as follows :

Decentralized World-Wide Networker Congress 1992 (NC92)

Where two or more artists/networkers meet in the course of 1992, a congress

will take place. The Decentralized World-Wide Networker Congress will serve

as a meeting point for all kinds of networkers. The meaning of the common

role as networkers should be the focus of the discussion.

As Networking options have expanded since 1992, and with the variety of media available to us now, we seek to expand this concept, and while honoring Mailart and face to face meeting, we are looking for all kinds of manifestations. Along with H.R. Fricker, the Congresses originator, and our Honorary organizer, we look forward to a re-energizing of these concepts, and expanded interactions within the network.

During the days of November 2, 3, and 4, 2012  Exhibitions will take place in 6 locations, in 6 distinctly different time zones. 

Galleries in Cornwall ( UK ), Odzaci ( Serbia ), Ponte Nossa (Italy), and Roanoke ( USA ) will host these exhibitions as well as serve as Downloading sites and Documentation centers, with abilities to Interact with performing Networkers through Skype and Secondlife.  Performances and activities will be  streamed live from all 6 locations using Bambuser and/or Livestream.  Please send Mailart, documentation of Congresses, texts, collages, rants, postcards, poems, add and pass sheets,  mythologies, videos, slogans, photographs, diaries, artifacts, envelopes, address lists, cassettes..."
