Guido Vermeulen is a prolific Mail Artist and has recently launched a parallel  Mail Art project.

1914 – 2014 :

RESIST 100 YEARS OF WAR

This mail art project is not in opposition or competition but in support of the existing mail art project on the anniversary of the so-called « great » war.

So we support and encourage the efforts of Jan Theunink and Paul Verhulst in Belgium, those of Theresa Easton in the UK and the Hungarian project (a collaboration between networkers in Hungary, Germany and Austria, the world will follow). We also salute the incredible individual efforts of artists like Eric Bensidon and Alain Cotten in France and Otto Sherman in the USA.

THE MAIL ART PROJECT WE PROPOSE is based on

°  the refusal of war as a destruction of people’s common togetherness and solidarity

War was conducted by those who did not know eacht other for the bank accounts of those who knew each other quite well (to paraphrase Valéry)

°  the refusal of any kind of war nostalgia or the recuperation of so-called peace by institutions like the EC or the UN (who have no problem launching new wars « in the name of peace and freedom»)

° the backing of a total rehabilitation for all soldiers who were executed by their own commanders and governments « as example », with excuses as cowardice, or desertion, or you have lost your equipment and other nonsens

° the backing of independent historical research on what happened during these « great » wars

You can fill in yourself other angles of interests, the list is limitless

 FREE SIZE AND MEDIUM

 NO DEADLINE

This project is proposed by mail artist Guido Vermeulen with the support of FRIOUR NETWORK MAGAZINE and a new Circle of Free Thought in Belgium : CLP-KVD
