|About the mail-artists' group com°post:
Ever since Edgar Hohl (art teacher and designer), Reinhild Mackowiak and Gabriela Rocker (both
art historians), and Franz Schiermeier (architect and publisher → web site) decided to become mail artists
more than 20 years ago, they have been involved in a variety of mail-art projects.
Although initially they dedicated their artistic skills almost entirely
to designing and modifying invitation and greetings cards, they soon got
inspired by the work of other artists, e. g. Aristide Maillol ("Daphnis
und Cloe") and Joseph Beuys. Lateron, social, political and cultural events,
such as the German reunification (a stimulant of the banana mail-art
project) and the 25th anniversary of the Münsterlandmuseum located
in the Vischering castle (Westphalia/Germany), spurred them to mail-art
activities as well. As a reward for many years of intensive work, they
were twice given the chance to present postcards in two different mail-art
exhibitions entitled "Auf allen Vieren" (Munich 1996) and "Burg Vischering
im Bild - Ansichten zwischen Kunst und Kitsch" (Burg Vischering 1997).
