Clemente Padin's Archive

Clemente Padinīs statement about her motive for maintaining the archive:
Because I love mail art and communication technology. Mail art emphasizes the importance of communication, rather than a mercantile product subject to the laws of the marketplace. In whatever product of communication that I choose to transmit there are the characteristics of relationships between society and me. Of course this presents the antagonisms and contradictions that these relationships present. Mail art, intended as a full expression of humanity, is distorted to the point that it can only be spoken as a historical or autonomous discourse, like an entity floating in space.

Collection: Mail art and experimental poetry, video, performances poetry, pictures.
