    Can you be more specific as to size and all?

    I’m definitely interested in taking part! Is there a minimum/maximum number of postcards allowed?

    Hi Cordula, I would love to be part of this and will send off my entry soon. Thanks for the opportunity to show our work in Europe. From erika in New Zealand ..e^)

    Do we just mail the postcard like a regular postcard, or enclose it in an envelope and mail like a letter?

      Hi Judith,
      sorry I just noticed your comment. You can send it anyway you like. If you feel it is safer in an envelope you can mail it like a letter. Would love to get mail from you!
      Thank you,

    I’m guessing its a little late to get it to you by April 30. I’ll keep watch for another opportunity.

    Hi Cordula,
    This is a great project – really exciting to see such varied & imaginative responses. We had an art party here @ Lost Coast Culture Machine specifically to make work to send to you. A few of the sendings have yet to be posted & we’re hoping that you did in fact receive them: from me, Anne Beck, from Dietmar Krumrey & from Carolyn Schneider. Can you let us know when you have a moment?
    Thanks kindly for putting this together,

      Hi Anne, I think I saw your artwork in the exhibition. Just have to take a photo and upload it here. I uploaded C. Schneider today but haven’t seen Dietmar Krumreys contribution yet, just Iza Krumreys.

      Thank you all for taking part!

        Hi Cordula,
        Thank you kindly for getting back to me. The image you uploaded today is actually mine. Carolyn’s is cats with wings & Dietmar’s is corporate flight (a business man carrying a bag of money between the American & German flags). We’ll keep checking.
        Thank you for all your work!

        Hi Anne, thank you for pointing out the confusion! I am sorry for that and changed the name. I have also just uploaded Carolyns artwork and will check for Dietmar’s tomorrow in the exhibition. Did you send them all together in one envelope?

        Thank you,

    Very interesting exhibition.I found this site too late to send a work but am interested in future opportunities.
    thank you

    Thank you Cordula!
    We sent all the work separately. Dietmar’s was the last to go.

      Hi Anne,
      Dietmar’s work actually arrived just yesterday. It must have been stuck at the customs for over a month! I have no idea why but the interesting thing is that the German customs sticker with the German Eagle (Bundesadler) is now glued on top of Dietmar’s German Flag. It has joined the exhibition now for last 10 days! Will upload a photo later!


      • 17 Anne Beck June 21, 2011 at 6:21 pm

        Funny! I wonder if the image caused concern? I’m so glad it finally made it. Dietmar will be excited to hear & to see the revised version with the Bundesadler!
        Thank you!
