Lothar Trott and some more "DOKU"

Here are some works sent to me by Lothar Trott in the last year. I have featured him many times before on this blog so this is just another handful of stuff sent to me while living here in Berlin that I haven't posted till now. He is based out of Zürich Switzerland and the works often are collage and digital print collage featuring themes of Fluxus artists and mail artists. Artists Ray Johnson and Joseph Beuys are often pictured and spoken about. He has also done a series of art booklet/zine/flyers called "DOKU" which seem to document art sent to him as well as collaborative works with other postal artists (you can see my name comes up many times on these "DOKU" flyers).

Zerbrechlich! works from Elke Grundmann

Here are postal artwork from Berlin based Elke Grundmann. I have been in contact with Elke since I lived in Philadelphia Pennsylvania but of course being in the same country now makes it much easier and more affordable to respond to each other through the post. Elke Grundmann is very important for the postal art movement as a veteran postal artist, archivist and collector of works of some of the most important postal artists. Most of the works below are collage work which some of my favorite are the alterations of old postcards (like the first one posted). I myself like collecting vintage postcards and in the past I often bought mine at an antique store in Lancaster Pennsylvania on Queen Street called "Charlies & Rev Chi Antiques", which many of those postcards I purchased in Lancaster I sent to Elke.  The postcard entitled "A Part of my Artwork" (the image of a Xerox of Elke Grundmann's hand" was featured on the cover "Pense Aqui - Rivista de Arte Postal" (No 400 - De 10 a 16.1.2013),  which is a Brazilian based Zine published by José Roberto Sechi.
