AFZET

From 1981 until 1985 I edited together with a collegue an international mail-art magazine called ‘AFZET’. It was presented from 4 to 6 times a year.
Each issue had a special item and artists all over the world were invited to send in material for each issue. All those who had send material received e free example which were all handmade.

The editions excisted ultimately of 100 copies of each issue.

After five years we celebrated in ‘the Schottenburgh’ in Amsterdam. In this galley some twelve international artists made an installations, the remaining artists were presented through their mail, performance or video during the exhibition. It was a very enjoyable and well received presentation by both the artists, media and public.

The artists whom made an installation were Mark Bloch ( U.S.A.), Ioanis Bunus (Germany/Hungary), David Cole U.S.A.), Harry Fox ( U.S.A.), Mark Horner (Sweden/U.S.A.), Jacques Massa ( France), Jürgen Olbrich ( Germany), Pandora
( Netherlands), Mark Pawson (Great Brittain), Heer Peejee ( Netherlands), Rudolph
( U.S.A.), Joseph Semah ( Netherlands).

Amongst those who joined in with performance or video were: Arno Arts, Siglinde Kallenbach, Martin Peulen, Jürgen Olbrich with Richard Meade, José Van Den Broucke, H.R. Fricker.

The lustrum celebration meant the end of Afzet and was the start of the Nouveau Nihilisten and So-called window-gallery.
