MinXus Mail Bag: Holiday greetings from Svenja Wahl (Heidelberg, Germany)

Svenja - holiday - 1

Mail-art by Svenja Wahl (Heidelberg, Germany)

As we have recently had to endure the slings and arrows of what shall certainly be remembered as The Great Mail-Art Fan Club Wars,  we are very pleased to post this cheery card from Miss Svenja in Heidelberg.

Given the delicate relations with Mr. Uli Grohmann, Mr. Erni Baer and a militant kindergarten teacher in Austria, we had begun to become concerned – given already present paranoid proclivities – that we had aroused the ire of some latent national spirits…. But why step further into the quicksand that nearly engulfed us? As ever, the reverse side of Miss Svenja’s card contained some interesting, random material:

Yes, we do sometimes imagine an Elgin that is a lunatic asylum, or appears – very likely unwarranted – to be a lunatic asylum. We shall file this under “Trashpo.”

Many thanks, Miss Svenja, and we look forward to a new year of mail-art exchange, remembering that the Eternal Network knows no national boundaries!

    Love it all. Just one question (for DK, I guess), do they dress up as Christmas trees in Elgin, is that how the neurosis manifests? If so, what happens after twelfth night?

    Howdy Tenderfoots!

    Miss Svenja did certainly lift our spirits. You know, there is considerable lore involved with the Christmas tree.

    Miss Becca, she has a knack for found text, as the Elgin fragment testifies. How does it fit into the considerable lore of Elgin? Perhaps it relates to Mr. Tinkler – if you’ve been following the news on the particular story.

    Best wishes for the New Year to you both!
