I have been engaged in the international mail-art network mainly during the 80-s of the last century which offered me all kinds of inspiration and intense collaboration with a lot of people in other countries. This kind of networking through the postal system today seems a little bit old-fashioned but it stands for the general idea and has namely the same roots as the today dominating virtual internet: mutual networking between people whereby every person has the chance of a free and creative communication.

From this time I know the Swiss concept-artist Hans-Ruedi Fricker who now launched the room-art project “Place of Places”. In this regard he offers enamelled signs for your home and documents the different locations with photos of the participants on his website. You can choose an individual sign such as “Place of Chaos” and put it at your home in order to create your own “Place of Places”.
