Support to Anatol Matasaru - Mailart Project

"Homage to Anatol Mătăsaru" A New MAILART PROJECT
(Taken from MOJARO blogspot) I announce here a no deadline network art project in support of Anatol Mătăsaru's quest. Make an art object (mailart, collage, drawing, painting, street performance, etc...) related to Anatol Mătăsaru's quest and send it to me in the original or a scanned (300dpi) version. Any support of the international community of network artists will be highly appreciated! Take a stance!

Your work will be published on this blog http://matasaruart.blogspot.com/
as well as in Moldova's opposition newspapers. Eventually, if the amount of the works will allow it, they will be all published in a book "Homage to Anatol Mătăsaru." All the publications will be announced on http://matasaruart.blogspot.com/ All the received works will be handed to Anatol Mătăsaru.

Mail to: Teodor Ajder,
ul. Bernardynska 21, m.45, 02-904,
Warsaw,
Poland.

ANATOL MĂTĂSARU
A colorful, conceptual artist from Moldova has been arrested twice (in December 2008 and January 2009) by the country's police during his peaceful street performances.see videos with two of his works that leaded to his arrest:

He has protested, using very creative forms of expression, against the corruption of police and government, the infringement of human rights and of the free speech in Moldova. Anatol Mătăsaru is for Moldovans what David Cerny is for Czechs.More about Anatol Mătăsaru in English:

Hi!
Thank you for yr wonderful contribution. I wrote two texts about Matasaru and the art that his art work generates. The first one was published last week. It was published in a magazine called "Ziarul de guard" - "The newspaper on guard" - and I used your work to illustrate it. The editor of the newspaper will send you soon a copy. I hope you will like it. Thank yo uagain!
Sincerely, Teodor
p.s. Some of the links in the original call are not alive anymore. I found new links to the same videos. I've uploaded them on the site.
