Library Thoughts-4, Budapest
Entry fee: $35
Johann Gutenberg's invention of movable type books ignited the explosion of art. These days the printed books that were previously published by publishers now can be read on line as ebooks. What is the future? Instead of having to interact with computers through not-so-intuitive and sometimes even counter-intuitive devices like a computer mouse or trackpad, soon users will be able to control their computers doing natural human movements such as gestures, whole-body movement, eye movement, and perhaps even such things as facial expressions. Is it the end for books as we know them? Question the survival of paper, books, libraries in this digital age. The process of sending artworks through the mail, with the envelope, the stamp and the postmark as entire part of the mail-art-object make this process to what we call MailArt. Since 1986 we call mail-artists also networkers because they are active in/with several "media": music, computer (internet, e-mail), fax, copy-art, performance, small-press, artists' books, etc.
