“The purpose of mail art, an activity shared by many artists throughout the world, is to establish an aesthetical communication between artists and common people in every corner of the globe, to divulge their work outside the structures of the art market and outside the traditional venues and institutions: a free communication in which words and signs, texts and colours act like instruments for a direct and immediate interaction.” – Loredana Parmesani

[Loredana Parmesani, text under the entry “Poesia visiva”, in L’arte del secolo – Movimenti, teorie, scuole e tendenze 1900–2000, Giò Marconi – Skira, Milan 1997]
