This Add & Pass book started Geronimo Finn 2019 and is now finished and on the way back to him. It contains contributions from Musta Fior, Flore Kunst, Julien Ratouin-Lefèvre, 13 Mixed Modes, Zach Collins, WOFUSA Collage, Dorothee Mesander, Alison Kurke and myself.
This book is part of a project called Add and Pass – PASSport collage project! that Geronimo has started in 2017: He sends old Austrian passports, savings and membership books to interested participants with the request to design a double page each and to send it on to the next interested person until the book is completed and then sent back to him. Since 2017 he has sent about 200 books on the journey and has now received back 14 completed books so far.

Dieses Buch ist Teil eines Projektes namens Add and Pass – PASSport collage project!, das Geronimo 2017 gestartet hat: Er versendet alte österreichischen Pässe, Spar- und Mitgliedsbücher an interessierte Teilnehmer mit der Bitte, je eine Doppelseite zu gestalten und an den nächsten Interessenten weiterzuschicken bis das Buch vollendet ist und dann an ihn zurück geschickt wird. Seit 2017 hat er etwa 200 Bücher auf die Reise geschickt und nun bislang 14 vollendete Bücher zurückerhalten.

Noch eine Linoleum Postkarte

Vor einiger Zeit habe ich aus einem Linoleum-Farbfächer eines Einrichtungsgeschäfts eine Postkartenkollektion gemacht. Diese Postkarte habe ich nicht dem Fächer beigefügt sondern werde sie an Willyum Rowe senden, der mir jeden Monat Mail Art schickt. Ich hoffe, sie gefällt ihm. Die schwarzen Buchstaben auf schwarzem Hintergrund sind im Original besser zu erkennen als hier im Artikel.

Some time ago I made a postcard collection out of a linoleum color fan of a furniture store. I did not add this postcard to the fan but will send it to Willyum Rowe who sends me Mail Art every month. I hope he likes it. The black letters on black background are better visible in the original than here in the article.

Carrie Helser (USA) hat mir letztes Jahr ein ganz besonderes Weihnachtsgeschenk gemacht: Ihr Freund Willyum Rowe hat für das Jahr 2020 ein Kunst-Abonnement als eine Art Spendenaktion für sich selbst konzipiert: Jeder Abonnent erhält monatlich von ihm ein Original-Kunstwerk, das in dem eigens dafür gestalteten „Museums-Umschlag“ aufbewahrt werden kann. Carrie hat ein Abo für mich gekauft.
Das ist die Post von Juli. Ich liebe dieses Abo!

Last year Carrie Helser (USA) gave me a very special Christmas present: Her friend Willyum Rowe has designed an art subscription for the year 2020 as a kind of fundraiser for herself: Each subscriber will receive an original work of art from him each month, which can be kept in the specially designed „museum envelope“. Carrie bought a subscription for me.
This is the mail from July. I love the subscription very much!

Maya Lopez Muro rief zu Beginn der Pandemie zu einem kollaborativen Briefmarkenprojekt auf. Alle Teilnehmer sollten den von ihr vorbereiteten Entwurf einer Briefmarke vollenden. Aus allen Zusendungen fasste sie eine Serie auf einem Bogen zusammen. Es haben so viele Menschen daran teilgenommen, dass insgesamt 20 Bögen a 31 Briefmarken entstanden sind. Vom 14. – 16 August 2020 gab es dazu eine Open Air Ausstellung in San Giovanni Valdarno, in der Provinz Arezzo in Italien. Die hätte ich mir gerne vor Ort angeschaut, aber …. „Io resto a casa – ich bleibe zu Hause“.

Maya Lopez Muro called for a collaborative stamp project at the beginning of the pandemic. All participants should complete the stamp design she had prepared. From all the stamps sent, she put together a series on one sheet. So many people took part that a total of 20 sheets of 31 stamps were created. From 14-16 August 2020 there was an open air exhibition in San Giovanni Valdarno, in the province of Arezzo in Italy. I would have liked to have had a look at it on site, but …. „Io resto a casa – I stay at home“.

In Tictac PatriziasZine in a box“ Nr. 14 befand sich eine Einladung, an einem „Würfelspiel“ teilzunehmen. Auf den von ihr vorbereiteten Würfeln befanden sich Satzfragmente, mit denen man durch einen Wurf ein zufälliges dadaistisches Gedicht verfasste, das man notieren und an sie emailen sollte.

In TicTacs Hintergrundinformationen zu diesem Projekt ist zu lesen:
Würfel als Ausschnitte
Die Ausschneidetechnik ist eine aleatorische [vom Zufall abhängige, auf Zufall beruhende, dem Zufall überlassene] literarische Methode, bei der ein Text zerschnitten und anders angeordnet wird, wodurch ein neuer Text entsteht.
Diese Methode geht auf den Dadaismus in den 1920er Jahren mit Tristan Tzaras Methode „Wie man ein dadaistisches Gedicht verfasst“  zurück und wurde 30 Jahre später von William S. Burroughs populär gemacht.
Aleatorisch, weil sie wie ein Würfelwurf vom Zufall abhängt“ (siehe Foto)

Das hat mich neugierig gemacht, denn mir war die Methode von Tristan Tzara nicht bekannt. Ich habe dazu folgendes gefunden:
„Wie man ein dadaistisches Gedicht verfasst
(Methode von Tristan Tzara)

Um ein dadaistisches Gedicht zu machen:
– Nimm eine Zeitung.
– Nimm eine Schere.
– Wähle einen Artikel der so lang ist wie Du vorhast, Dein Gedicht zu verfassen.
– Schneide den Artikel aus.
– Dann schneide jedes der Wörter aus, aus denen dieser Artikel besteht, und packe sie in eine Tüte.
– Schüttel  sie leicht.
– Dann nimm die Fetzen nacheinander in der Reihenfolge heraus, in der sie die Tüte verlassen haben.
– Übernimm alles gewissenhaft.
Das Gedicht wird Dir ähnlich sein.
Und hier bist Du – ein Schriftsteller, unendlich originell und mit einer Sensibilität ausgestattet, die über das Verständnis des Vulgären hinaus reizvoll ist.
–Tristan Tzara“ (Quelle)

Aus allen Einsendungen hat TicTac nun ein Magazin gemacht, das „Zine in a box No 14 – The Dice Roll Project – Magazine“. Noch habe ich es wegen der Corona-bedingten Einschränkungen bei der Post nicht erhalten – aber TicTac hat mir freundlicherweise schon einmal einige Fotos für diesen Artikel zur Verfügung gestellt. Wie man darauf erkennen kann, sind die Gedichte unterschiedlich lang – meins ist absolut minimalistisch – drei Würfel ergaben einen Dreizeiler.
Es hat mir Spaß gemacht, an diesem Projekt teilzunehmen – und ich freue mich sehr auf das Magazin.

english version:
In Tictac Patricia’sZine in a box“ No. 14 there was an invitation to participate in a „game of dice“. On the dice she had prepared there were fragments of sentences with which one could write a random Dadaist poem by rolling them, which one should note down and email to her.

See TicTac’s background information about this project:
Dices at cut-outs
The cut-out technique is an aleatoric literary method [based on coincidence, left to chance] in which a text is cut up and arranged differently, creating a new text.
This method is traced  back to Dadaism in the 1920´s with Tristan Tzara’s method „To Make a Dadaist Poem“ and it was made popular 30 years later by William S. Burroughs.
Aleatoric, because it depends on chance just like a throw of a dice ….“ (see photo)

This made me curious, because I was not familiar with the method of Tristan Tzara. I have found the following:
„How to Make a Dadaist Poem
(method of Tristan Tzara)
To make a Dadaist poem:

– Take a newspaper.
– Take a pair of scissors.
– Choose an article as long as you are planning to make your poem.
– Cut out the article.
– Then cut out each of the words that make up this article and put them in a bag.
– Shake it gently.
– Then take out the scraps one after the other in the order in which they left the bag.
– Copy conscientiously.
– The poem will be like you.
– And here are you a writer, infinitely original and endowed with a sensibility that is charming though beyond the understanding of the vulgar.
–Tristan Tzara“ (Source)

TicTac has now made a magazine out of all submissions, the „Zine in a box No 14 – The Dice Roll Project – Magazine“. I haven’t received it by mail yet due to the Corona-related restrictions – but TicTac has kindly provided me with some of the photos for this article. As you can see on it, the poems are of different lengths – mine is absolutely minimalistic – three cubes resulted in a three-line.
I enjoyed participating in this project – and I’m really looking forward to the magazine.
