[Nettime-ro] International project: Paeckchen für Kirgistan / Post for Kyrgyzstan

Päckchen für Kirgistan / Post for Kyrgyzstan
(info from the website

How does one bring international art into a country which does not have the financial means required for the organisation of an international exhibition? The endless search for sponsors seemed to us to be tedious and unprofitable. We therefore decided to call on artists to send their work in a parcel or letter. With this action we want to draw attention to a country which is widely unknown, while at the same time enriching local cultural activity. There is great interest in international art, but few offers, and for the majority of the Kirghiz people travelling is still unaffordable.

Our intention is to give people an understanding of contemporary art, and also to show that art does not necessarily depend on expensive material and immense effort. We are looking forward to all the "parcels" and hope for lively participation. 

The theme of the exhibition is »Utopia of Space«. The entry deadline is 15th February 2008 (postmark) Shipping parcels from Europe to Kyrgyzstan usually takes approximately four weeks). Please send to:
