NO MAS EXCUSAS-(Mail Art Project-Global Networking-1991)

NO Mas Excusas was a mail art project lauched by the Uruguayan Mail Artist Clement Padin on the end of the 80s and terminated with an exhibition and this documentation in 1991.
A small biography taken by Wordpress.
"Clemente Padín was born in Lascano, Uruguay in 1939. He is a poet, performer, designer, video- and multimedia-artist, and art critic. He studied Spanish Literature at the University of the Republic of Uruguay. In 1967 he made first experiences in the field of Mail Art, exchanging publications with Edgardo Antonio Vigo, Guillermo Deisler and Dámaso Ogaz. In 1969 he published the magazine “OVUM” as well as postcards and visual poems. During the Military Dictatorship in Uruguay he organised the first Latin-American Mail Art exhibition in 1974 at Gallery U in Montevideo. With his fake postal stamps he doomed the dictatorial regime for its brutal suppression of human rights. This might have lead to his imprisonment from August 1977 to Novembre 1979. Mail Artists from all around the world protested against it.
In October 1983 he showed the public his artistic activities in the exhibitions “1. Mai” in Uruguay. After that he organised the Latin-American and Caribian union of Mail Artists, founded August 31, 1984 in Rosario, Argentina. Since then Padín has been participating in hundreds of Mail Art exhibitions worldwide.
“Mail Art is not made for the art marked, it is there to be consumed and communicated. It is impossible to reduce the artistic to political or social interests. The political content of art is inseperably bound to the artistic content. Mail Art shows itself as a form of social consciousness.” Clemente Padín (translation by MAI)"
You can read a very interesting interview to this artist on Iuoma.org
In this documentation you`ll find a very good article about :Networking, MAil Art and Human Rights in Latin America.(in spanish and english).
Enjoy it.

RADIKALNA PROMJENA-Jaki Ljudi Ne Trebaju Vođu-(Self Released-Croatia-1997)

"RADIKALNA PROMJENA (eng. Radical Change) was an important DIY anarcho-hardcore-punk band, with some dub elements in their music, from Zagreb, Croatia.
One of the founders of the band and the vocalist/songwriter is Domagoj Šeks. He was son of the Vladimir Šeks, that was president of Croatian parliament and still is now very influential politician in Croatian government and 'the word on the street' is that Domagoj, his son, had a really big problem to live with the fact that he is his son, so perhaps that is the reason, why is this tape full of very honest & constructive rebellious attitude against government & society stupidity that (still) gets rapidly even worse every day. Domagoj Šeks tragically died in 2005 in India, because some local group of people, that didn't like him, put the poison in his tea. Some of other Radikalna Promjena members formed dub band called Radikal Dub Kolektiv."(from Pouludjela Pankcina blog)
5 tracks of furious political HC punk, well recorded, all the info in Croatian language only on the cover sleeve of this great cassette.
Enjoy it.

DANIELE CIULLINI-Identita` Sonora-(Self Relesed-Italy-2016)

Another great release by the cross-cultural genius Daniele Ciullini, mail artist and musician active since the early 80s.
I spoke about him when I posted his digital album Resti(2014).
In that post, you`ll find also his biography and a very useful note about his own works and ideas/messages. His YouTube channel is here
and  here his archive.org page.
In this 4 tracks mini album called Identita` Sonora(Sonic Identity) Daniele crystallizes ancient sound-sculptures where damned souls and imaginary ghosts move swiftly into parallel dimensions leaving us dazed and speechless.
This is a wonderful album for the lovers of old-school industrial and powerful dark ambient.
A very big thanx to Daniele for choosing my blog to share this amazing album.I loved it, simply.
Enjoy it.

ps-news on the 27/07/2018 by a FB User called Raf Diy after that this was shared on an FB Page about HC Punk:
 "Fond memories of this release on my early tape label, which became Guerilla Vinyl. Meeting and recording this band was just pure pleasure and it seemed like everything was possible. Recorded in South-west of France, in a garage, with cheap material, particularly the mics, on a Fostex X-26 4 tracks cassette portastudio... Sorry about the sound, my fault not theirs :)
 This band only release. They were called Apatride Bunker before, one of the members also played with grindcore band Ultimate Disorder (I had recorded their demo at the same time, in a garden shed!), he and another member later played with Enola Gay, and Disbeer, among other bands."

Sexy Girl-(Mail Art Project-Global Networking-1992)

Sexy Girl was a mail art project launched by Matteo Cagnola in Italy, He was also running a mail art archive.
Lots of artworks from different mail artists from all over the world who sent 50 copies of the same piece of art to be assembled in this small zine.
Nice, provoking, funny and inspiring...
