Die ungleichen Zwillinge – Reloaded
mit Antonio Martin Ferrand (1/2)

Das erste von zwei Büchern, die ich im Rahmen meines Kollaborationsprojektes
Die ungleichen Zwillinge bearbeite, ist fertig – dieses Mal mit Antonio Martin Ferrand.
Zwei gleiche Bücher aus der Insel Bücherei dienen als Grundlage und werden von mir an den jeweiligen Kollaborationspartner verschickt. Beide gestalten eins der beiden Bücher als Starter, beide beenden das jeweils andere, so dass am Ende zwei Originale Bücher entstanden sind. Jeder erhält sein gestartetes Buch zurück.
Die Rahmenbedingungen habe ich modifiziert: Bei „Reloaded“ geht es nicht mehr darum, den Buchkörper zu verändern, sondern das entkernte Buch auf dem Umschlag und den verbliebenen Innenseiten zu bearbeiten.
Das ist das Buch, dass ich für Antonio gestartet habe – und er hat es beendet.

The first of two books of my collaboration project
The Unequal Twins – this time with Antonio Martin Ferrand – is finished.
Two identical books from the Insel Bücherei serve as a basis and will be sent by me to the respective collaboration partner. Both design one of the two books as a starter, both finish the other, so that at the end two original books are created. Everyone gets his started book back.
I have modified the basic conditions: In „Reloaded“ it is no longer about changing the book body, but about editing the de-inked book on the cover and the left inside pages.
This is the book I started for Antonio – and he finished it.

Das Forschungszentrum für Spezialsammlungen der Temple University Libraries (SCRC) hat einen offenen Aufruf zur Quarantäne-Postkunst veröffentlicht.
Bei all dem weltweiten Elend rund um die Pandemie fällt es schwer aber ist es so wichtig, das Schöne im Auge zu behalten. Deswegen habe ich meine Collage „Das Schöne im Blickpunkt“ auf der Single „Schallplatten Vogelbuch von E. V. Schälow und Dr. V. Wendland  -Sang da nicht die Nachtigall!“ vom Verlag J. Neumann-Neudamm – Melsungen kreiert, auf der unterschiedliche Vogelstimmen zu hören sind. Ich hoffe, der Jury gefällt meine Mail Art.
Im späten Herbst 2020 werden die Einsendungen in der Charles Library ausgestellt.

The Temple University Libraries’ Special Collections Research Center (SCRC) has issued an open call for quarantine mail art.
With all the global misery surrounding the pandemic, it is hard but important to keep an eye on the beautiful. That is why I created my collage „Focus on the Beautiful“ on the single „Schallplatten Vogelbuch von E. V. Schälow und Dr. V. Wendland – Wasn’t the nightingale that sang!“ by the publishing house J. Neumann-Neudamm – Melsungen, on which different bird voices can be heard. I hope the jury likes my Mail Art.
In late autumn 2020 the entries will be exhibited at the Charles Library.

This book is part of an ongoing project by Sabine Remy called „The Unequal Twins“, started 2018. Two identical books from the Insel Bücherei, saved from the waste paper container, serve as a basis and will be sent by me, Sabine Remy, to the respective collaboration partner. Both design one of the two books as a starter, both finish the other, so that at the end two original books are created. Everyone gets his started book back.

Re-Volver Arte 2020 (BRA)

Ich habe an dem Mail Art Call Re-Volver Arte teilgenommen – und das ist mein Beitrag.
Im Portugiesischen bezieht sich das Verb „Revolver“, im Gegensatz zum Substantiv „revólver“, das eine bestimmte Art von Handfeuerwaffe bezeichnet, auf den Akt des Umdrehens, des Verschiebens, des Positionswechsels. Das bedeutet: Die auf dem Postweg erhaltenen Werke werden mit ihren Originalumschlägen in der Fine Arts Gallery der Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Brasilien, ausgestellt, und nach Ende der Ausstellung werden die Werke an zufällige Teilnehmer der Ausstellung zurückgeschickt.
Die Vernissage wurde ursprünglich für den 8. Juni 2020 geplant – aus den allseits bekannten Gründen wird dieser verschoben und die Einsendefrist verlängert.

english version:
I have participated in the Mail Art Call Re-Volver Arte – and this is my contribution
In Portuguese, the verb „revolver“, as opposed to the noun „revólver“, which denotes a certain type of handgun, refers to the act of turning, moving, changing position.
This means that the works received by post are exhibited with their original envelopes at the Fine Arts Gallery of the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Brazil, and at the end of the exhibition the works are returned to random participants of the exhibition.
The vernissage was originally planned for June 8, 2020 – for reasons well known to everyone, this will be postponed and the deadline for submissions extended.
