continuation of the first Mail Art Interview with Olbrich
I think that, at the same time that you started doing Mail Art, you also started your activities within the field of Copy Art and Performance. Do you think there is a link between these three artistic "disciplines" or did you want to explore several artistic fields?
I have noticed that several of the Mail Artists that started their activities in the 70's were also involved in Performance Art. Do you think there is an explanation for this?
Yes, when I shared Copy Art, Performance, etc. around 1974 there were common ideas behind it all: Direct contacts, immediate expression, new media + expansion of artistic limits + social interaction.
Some critic called it “Expanded Performance” what I did.
