YOLO, „THE IN word of the year 2012“ used by young people, gives our art group Kunstrefugium e.V. the theme for our project Mail-Art.
All artists in the whole world are called upon to participate.
You are invited to send us your interpretations of the word „YOLO“ in a positive or critical aspects such as: the feeling of life, zest for living, the dangers of life, enjoyments, thirst for life, irresponsible handling of life, sphere of todays youth culture or their language.
All postcards sizes up to DIN A4, weight up to 200 gr. in all techniques are acceptable. Kunstrefugium e.V. will publish all received postcards on their website http://www.kunstrefugium.de with artists name and website if wished.
The 14th and 15th September 2013 all art works will be displayed on the big annual street party „Corso Leopold“ (last year 300.000 visitors were counted)
in Munich, Leopoldstreet. All postcard art works will be on sale for at least 5 Euros or more a postcard. The end sum from the sold art works will so go directly to the Verein für Jugendpflege und Jugendhilfe e.V. This organization helps children and young people who are in a difficult situation in their life.
Your sent in art works will not be returned nor will you the artist get any of the donated money that is meant for the „Verein für Jugendpflege und Jugendhilfe e.V. for your artworks.
Associated to the ending of the project we want to create a catalogue in which you can find an overview with all send in artworks. By handing in your artwork you allow us to show your object in the catalogue and ensure you have all the rights on your artwork and the publication of it. The catalogue will be produced if the crowdfunding is successful http://www.startnext.de/yolo-mail-art-projekt
