Looking for email
The first artists to move into the Munken Works Space in Berlin are Sun Jung Hwang and Annemarie van den Berg. At the beginning of July they will start their project post o-f-f-i-c-e, which focuses on digital versus analogue communication.
In this project people are invited to send the artists emails to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. The artists will then create personalised analogue post on paper in reply, such as letters, postcards or packages. The final presentation will be the post o-f-f-i-c-e where the total collection of the personalised replies is shown, and where – at the end – senders can pick up their reply.
“The paper is the medium on which the message travels. No paper, no message. Our project is easily explained in one sentence: You can write us anything, ask us a question, tell us your secret, or just say hi. After receiving your email we will work on a very special personal *one-and-only* analogue reply.“
